MS:CC - Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes

This was a whirlwind, I just found out I was able to participate in the MS: Cupcake Club and my book hadn't arrived. I really wanted to make this months recipe, so off I went to the book store and bought a copy of Martha Stewart's Cupcakes. I had everything on hand except the cream cheese, not too bad considering the time constraints. Easy recipe and if the batter is any indication, they will be awesome cupcakes; nice spice blend and with the pumpkin puree I'm sure they will be moist. I made half the recipe and got 12 minis and 12 regular cupcakes. I didn't have time to make the cute marzipan pumpkins but used candy corn for the minis and candy pumpkins for the regular. DH tasted them and really liked them, he is taking them to work tomorrow and will give me the results for his office mates.


Many thanks to Kim from What the Whisk for my first recipe with the MS:CC, check out the other blogs at MS: Cupcake Club.

Great looking tops for these pumpkin cupcakes. I couldn't figure out what to do as I didn't want to make marzipan, so I just put sprinkles on the top...LOL. So not creative around here. Yours look wonderful and delicious. Love your wrappers, too!

These are so pretty. I too sent them off to the husband's office to get them out of the house!

Now, I reckon I just gave myself a few more grey hairs by scrambling arond to get this one done by deadline (I just joined as well). But I would have save loads of time and stress, had I thought to use pumpkin shaped candies. Good call on that one!
