I have been meaning to make these cupcakes for so long.
Seriously, like, forever. A friend of mine posted a recipe that gave me the idea for pumpkin spice ( something ) in late September! I’ve been working on this recipe since then, and just finally got around to actually doing it.
What can I say, I’ve got a lot of cupcakes in the works around here. Having adult ADHD can contribute to this. You know when you have 80 tabs open and forget what you were doing now and then? Yeah, that’s pretty much my head all day every day.
I really wanted to make something that wasn’t overly Halloweenie but still had a fall vibe so yup, it’s topped with a pumpkin. I know, I know….not everyone likes those pumpkins ( because some people are wrong lol ). This could easily be anything on top. I, for one, am a HUGE fan of the Brachs candy pumpkins, though. I will use any excuse to keep Halloween candy, like candy corn, still on the dessert menu.
I think this is about it for fall recipes from us, though. Although I’m much more of a Halloween fan I have to say that I am READY for some Christmas baking. There is just something so cozy about warm baked goods on chilly days.
We recently finished reading Charlotte’s Web so we have Wilbur cupcakes on the books as well as a spider cake in honor of Charlotte.
I have a few others up my sleeve too so be sure to join our mailing list to be the first to know when new baked treats are on the site!
Also, we will be adding recipes for weight loss soon. This means that there will be a lot more than just baking around here so do keep an eye out for those as well! Having my struggles with weight gain from medication, I am a big supporter of anyone who is looking for a healthy way to lose weight. I have decided to share my “depression diet” on the site in hopes to help other moms who deal with weight struggles. ( shh, no, it’s not all of the cupcakes lol)
Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
I know… ON WITH THE CUPCAKES! I get excited about baked goods too, it’s ok.
I love a sweet cupcake but these guys are seriously delicious. The perfect spice blend in the cake goes absolutely beautifully with the sweetness of the cream cheese frosting. It’s like a really good carrot cake. I used to hate carrot cake when I was younger but nowadays I absolutely love it. ( Isn’t it weird how our tastes change? I wonder if there is a science behind it…)
If you are new here you might not know of my serious cupcake addiction. It’s kind of a big deal, though.
