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.

The mini cakes are a perfect addition to the table.


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.

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.
