 Ingredients List

  • Cupcakes
  • 1 standard size box spice cake mix (I typically use Duncan Hines)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • Frosting
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 1/2 - 4 cups powdered sugar
  • Cinnamon Sugar Mixture (2-3 TBSP)
  • Pinch of salt



Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Place 24 cupcake liners in cupcake pans.

In a large bowl, combine cake mix, water, eggs, oil, pumpkin and cinnamon. Once all ingredients are combined, mix on medium speed for two minutes.

Fill cupcake liners with batter approximately 2/3 of the way full.

Bake for 17-22 minutes or until tops spring back lightly when touched.

Remove from oven and place on wire rack. Allow to cool completely prior to frosting.

BEAT cream cheese, butter, and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually beat in sugar. Blend in salt and 2 tablespoons of a cinnamon sugar mixture. Spread or pipe onto cupcakes. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar mixture.

STORE cupcakes in refrigerator.
