Pumpkin season is upon us... 
While everyone is in line ordering their Pumpkin Spice Lattes and wishing for rain,
our beloved Pun'kin has returned! 
What better way to indulge in your favorite fall flavor than with a pumpkin pie cupcake topped with pumpkin mousse frosting. 
But wait... there's more! 
If a cupcake wasn't enough, we are also releasing our Pumpkin Bourbon French Macaron and Pumpkin Lil' Pie. I repeat... a LIL' pumpkin pie. What could be better? 
 
Not a fan of Pumpkin? Don't worry we have plenty of goodies for you, including our new Spiced Chai French Macaron + an array of frosting filled desserts. 
Cheers to Fall, cupcakes, lil' pies, and all things pumpkin!
