Chris vs. Martha: Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes

Pin It

Martha, Martha, Martha. I admire your cookery and your craftiness. You make it look so easy. Like anyone can do it. But can they? I've tried some of your projects with varied success. So, dear Martha, I'm going to post some of my attempts here on book-a-rama.

First up is Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes from Martha Stewart's Cupcake book.

Chris

VS.

Martha

from Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia

I didn't make the cream cheese frosting because my girl hates it, nor did I make those cute little pumpkins. It took me hours just to do this. Also after about a day, the food colouring started to run. But they were delicious! And the recipe made a huge amount. I put some in the freezer for my girl's class Halloween party (without the icing).

Stay tuned for more Chris vs Martha!

  1. I actually like your cupcakes better - that little pumpkin thing on the top of Martha's does nothing for me.

  3. Yours look tasty...and I like the purply frosting much better than boring ol' white.

    And anyways, as long as they taste good, who cares what they look like!

  7. Ha! I love this segment. I agree that I like yours better. I wouldn't know how to eat Martha's without looking like a slob.

  8. I agree with everyone above, yours look better. For one thing, I hate cream cheese icing, for another your icing just looks so much more Halloween-y. Hers look like they should be for Thanksgiving.

  9. I actually prefer yours too! They are much more vivid and look tastier. Martha's look like they were made just for a photo, and I don't really like the pumpkin on top anyway! Although I do love cream cheese icing, so I would have just dyed that. =)

  10. Anyone who doesn't want the cream cheese icing can pass it my way! While Martha's look very pretty, your look very much like something I'd be happy to take a huge mouthful on!

  11. Thank you all for the compliments! If I can do it, anyone can.

    Meghan & Marg- I like cream cheese icing too, unfortunately my child does not.

  14. Yummy!! I love the swirl frosting look of yours--but her pumpkin is edible? I don't believe it. :P

    Can't wait to see more!

  16. I really like your version, although I would like to see minature pumpkins on top of them (just so cute).
