A Birthday Cake and 4 Fall Mini Desserts

This is a cake I made for a 6th birthday. It was white cake with vanilla buttercream, decorated with sugar flowers and Littliest Pet Shop toys.
I made 4 desserts for a Fall get-together. First were Impossible Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes, which taste like pumpkin pie, topped with sweetened whipped cream.
Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes topped with cinnamon whipped cream
Brown Sugar-Apple Mini Cheesecakes topped with sweetened whipped cream

Apple Cupcakes with 4 different kinds of apples, which were dusted with powdered sugar right before serving
