The month of November is a season of being thankful.  We celebrate many birthdays: Dad, Por Por, Godma, Aunty Kem and Aunty Janice. We are grateful for them in our lives!

I am also excited because every Thanksgiving we go to Aunty Janey’s home.  Aunty Janey is a great baking friend.  This cupcake is inspired by the pumpkin pie she makes.  Pumpkins also remind me of Fall, so this is a good time to make it.
