One of my favorite things about fall is the abundance of pumpkin flavored things.
And one of my favorite pumpkin flavored things is: pumpkin beer!
AND my favorite pumpkin beer... Dogfish Head's Punkin Ale.
I love a lot of their beers, but this one became a fall favorite the first time I tried it.
The pumpkin taste is right on, not too weak and not overwhelming.
And the finish is clean... no funky aftertaste like some other pumpkin ales.
Plus, it says "punk" on the bottle in a cute little pumpkin and it makes me smile!
The cute little punkin inspired me to make some cute little pumpkins...
Cake pops! Pumpkins were super easy: round cake balls slightly flattened with a green tic-tac stem.
These would be great for a Halloween party!
I also tried making some Jack 'o Lanterns, but the Wilton's food writer I bought was way
to hard to write on candy coating. These two were the only decent ones I got out of the whole bunch.
Has anyone ever tried edible pens/markers? I am open to suggestions!
These mostly just scraped off the candy. I think next time I will use a black candy writer pen...
