Fall Foliage Maple Cupcakes, Autumn Dessert Ideas

Fall Foliage Maple Cupcakes

The colors of Autumn are simply breathtaking. For some reason, fall foliage goes by so fast. One minute there are many trees with different leaf colors, and the next minute those same trees are completely bare. I always make sure I take time and enjoy them before they are gone. For example, I would go on mini road trips to various places where there are abundant of Fall leaf colors (gardens, parks, etc). I recently went to Portland, Oregon and got to view the beautiful Fall foliage there. So do you like Fall foliage, too?
Anyways, I made cupcakes inspired by the Fall foliage. I added maple syrup, ground nutmeg and ground cinnamon (fall flavors). Enjoy!
