{MSC} Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes


It's time for the cupcake of the month! Kim from What the Whisk chose Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes for October's MS Cupcake. I never made anything with pumpkin before; never really cared for it. No pumpkin pie -- it was always sweet potato pie for my family. No pumpkin cheesecake -- it was always a plain one for us. Yes, i've been a sheltered child.

So I made 1/4 of the recipe and came out with 8. Super easy to put together -- no mixer necessary. I loved the spices in this one. It sorta tasted like a sweet potato pie but it wasnt... there was ginger in this and i usually dont put ginger in my pie. I liked this, especially topped with cream cheese frosting, which i made orange, of course!


If you like pumpkin and you'd like to try these, get the book or you can check it out here.

Coming next month, my choice: Candied Sweet Potato Cupcakes!

Cute cupcakes, I like how you tinted the frosting. Glad to hear that making 1/4 of the batter worked out well, sometimes Martha's recipes are hard to make in smaller batches. Thanks for baking along with me this month!

Very pretty! Love the colors (especially the green sugar).

Megan said...

Sweet potato pie? That's something I've never had before. Have you posted the recipe?

Anyways, these were great cakes and I'm looking forward to next months' pick!

I almost made my frosting orange too! But then I thought maybe the pumpkins wouldn't stand out as much. Love your green sprinkles! And I tried to find orange cupcake wrappers with no luck. Your cupcakes look great dressed in orange!

Love, love, love the tinted icing on these and the matching wrappers. I need to go wrapper shopping...everyone has such cute ones. I am obviously not shopping enough. Happy to hear you liked pumpkin...I always think it is one of those flavors that can go either way quickly.

Amazing - and SO inspirational. Truly.. tinted frosting.. and love those colored sprinkles. Very elegant looking - the whole package is magazine-worthy (at just 8 cupcakes)! Very nicely done this month - I'm inspired..... :)
