Pumpkin cupcakes do not have to be hard to make. These are made by Cupcake Bakeshop. You can make some very simple ones by icing a cupcake with white icing and topping with a candy pumpkin.
I just love these cupcakes made by Cakes by Ashley. They would be great for taking to a fall festival or a halloween party.
Now you will need something to make the cupcakes with. Try a rich pumpkin cake and cream cheese frosting.
