Campfire Cupcakes

Autumn is finally here and there is nothing like a campfire, 

but if you can't have a real campfire, make an edible one!
These cupcakes are the perfect fall dessert!

The flames are easy to make.  Melt some orange/yellow/red chocolate buttons in zip baggies and cut a small corner off the bottom of each bag:

Squirt a little chocolate onto parchment paper:

Blend upwards with back of a spoon or spatula:

Let cool back to a hardened state and gently peel off paper:

The cupcakes were frosted with milk chocolate frosting:

I cut these cookies into 1" pieces:

The cookies and 'flames' were pressed into the frosting:

They were delicious!!

Last year I made a Campfire Cake:

I also tried to make logs with Tootsie Rolls, I simply rolled them to make them a bit thinner and longer:

It's always fun to "play with food"!

These are fabulous serving pieces:
