Autumn Table and Blackberry Mini Cakes with Glaze

Mix the beautiful colors of autumn with the joy of spending time in the kitchen, and we'll stay busy doing a happy jig. This is a fairly easy recipe with a lot of flavor. We took one of our favorite apple cake recipes and modified it to use berries.

This autumn table is centered around a lovely set of dishes we found at a consignment shop. They match perfectly with the floral autumn napkins we made, and the drinking glasses we picked up at a shop in Quechee, Vermont years ago.

We have not been able to find this exact watermark anywhere. Any ideas? They appear white, but they do have a touch of gray or blue to them depending on the light.

Blackberry Mini cakes are a perfect way to welcome fall. This is a delicious recipe that is so moist, and perfect with a cup of cinnamon tea.

Candles are a wonderful touch for any table setting. They don't have to be expensive to add atmosphere, color, and a little something extra to a meal. We're loving these dishes! They are versatile and can be used for different holidays.

Autumn is such a wonderful time of the year. Here in Montana, we bask in the mild fall weather before the long winter ahead. We wish everyone a safe and enjoyable October!

Thank you for visiting, and enjoy the cakes!

Note: We use organic and natural ingredients whenever possible and available. We're lucky to have easy access to such ingredients at good prices. When a recipe calls for sugar, we're using organic. When it calls for flour, we're using unbleached organic. The berries, eggs, and spices? Same deal. We realize that organic and natural ingredients are not readily available everywhere, or affordable in all markets. Just use the best-quality ingredients you can.
