Five Houston Desserts We're Falling For
The recent cold front is making it feel as if fall has officially hit our glorious city. Whether it stays or not is yet to be determined, but we're gonna eat like the air is crisp anyway. And what better place to start than with the sweet stuff?

Here are 5 Seasonal Desserts We're Totally Fallin' For:
5. Provisions' Carrot Cake Donut

We didn't think moist-spiced carrot cake with a tangy cream cheese frosting could get better. Then Provisions came along with this doughnut. The delicate hunk of fried dough looks unassuming at first, but crack it open and you'll see a thick, smooth carrot and cinnamon-laced custard oozing out. It's served alongside caramelized cream cheese frosting and brown-sugar crumbles, and the result is carrot cake on crack. And delicious.

4. Ooh La La Bakery's Salted Caramel Apple Cupcake
We can't get enough of Ooh La La's cupcakes, especially the ones that make us feel like we're fresh off the apple farm. This spiced apple cupcake is light, moist and smothered with a sweet caramel buttercream. And the sprinkling of sea salt on top only further accents the cake's bold autumn flavors.
