Acorn Cupcakes

A classmate of mine is getting hitched this weekend, so another classmate and myself pooled our resources (and time) to make these Fall themed cupcakes with acorns on top.  Of course, these were inspired by the Hello, Cupcake series of books.



The acorn is made from a Hershey kiss and mini Nilla Wafer.  The leaves were made from Starburst which were heated, rolled, cut with scissors, and a butter knife was used to simulate veins.  They were garnished with some gold sprinkles.

These were very simple and didn't take much time at all!  And can I just say how awesome it was to make cupcakes again?  Makes me feel human again!!
