Fall Leaves Cupcakes

Last week Katie and Bella had the same snack day (which I loved, because they get jealous of each other when they aren’t on the same day).  I decided to make something fall themed with them.  I love involving the kids in their snack so that they can take some ownership for what they bring to share with their friends. 

We made fall leaves cupcakes with pretzel stick and chocolate candy corn rakes.  I originally wanted to do these with mini Reece cups cut in half as the bottom of the “rake”, but many kids in my girl’s preschool are allergic to peanuts.  So I adjusted it with the candy corns as a rake.  I made yellow cake and added orange food coloring, then we iced them with green icing to look like grass.  Then sprinkled them with leaf sprinkles.  I think they turned out cute so I wanted to share 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
