I know, everyone is baking pumpkin desserts nowadays but I had to make cute pumpkin cupcakes! I just had to!
First reason, they are just adorable!
Second reason, I had a craving for some good old pumpkin cupcakes.
I really get the weirdest cravings because I really don’t usually like pumpkin desserts all that much. Can’t wait to see how crazy they get when I get pregnant…
Karl should be in for a ride that’s for sure!
In the end, I was right to want pumpkin cupcakes because these babies were delicious! The best thing about this recipe is the fact that the pumpkin taste is not overwhelming. I like pumpkin flavour but only up to a certain level. I wouldn’t make pumpkin puree and eat it just like that. That’s not my style. I like spicing this up, you know? eheh…but seriously, they’re quite yummy!
If you make this recipe, you have to make some cute fondant pumpkins to put on top! (I know it’s creepy since I don’t have kids but I do have adorable young neighbours! It has to count for something right?)
As for the icing, I decided to add a bit of fresh orange zest to give it that extra delicious taste. It worked well with the pumpkin!
Enough of me blabbing! Getting Bakin’ my lovelies!
