Second Cakes for Life Bake Sale

Believe it or not, it's been a whole month since the first bake sale. This month's cakes have a Thanksgiving theme. OK, so I'm not American, but I'm selling them at work and our company is American...'but Thanksgiving was last week' I hear you say? Well, sorry but I was a tad busy moving house and then my electric whisk broke down.

On the menu this month are carrot-cake cupcakes with an orange butter cream frosting and I even tried my hand at whoopie pies for the first time. These ones are pumpkin whoopie pies with cream cheese frosting, courtesy of the new Violet cakes recipe book I got from my sister-in-law (shhh, it was a Christmas present I opened early!).
