Pumpkin Cupcake

These are the best cupcakes I have ever had! They're so good I made them for my October 1st wedding this year. Everyone always loves them and none have a clue how easy and how much a cheat to make them. I'll share my secret with you guys though. You'll love me for it!


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a medium size bowl pour in white cake mix, pumpkin, pumpkin spice and egg. Stir until just combined.
  3. Line a muffin pan with medium sized paper liners. Fill each cup almost all the way up but so you can see a cm of the white liner at the top.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes. They're ready when you can put a toothpick in and pull it out clean. Let cool completely.
  5. Take one tablespoon of frosting and top the muffin/cupcake with it and spread with a knife evenly over the top. I like to take a roasted pumpkin seed and just stick on the top for some decoration and it shows what kind they are. Enjoy!
