this blog. I think she got it from another blog. Anywho. The honey cinnamon cream cheese icing stood out to me.
Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Honey Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes-(Recipe from Very Best Baking as seen adapted on Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life)
Makes about 24 mini cupcakes and 12 regular cupcakes (sorry I used two different pans)
1 package (18.25 oz.) spice cake mix
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
3 large eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cupcake tins.
-Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl for about 3 minutes with a mixer.
-Bake mini cupcakes for about 11-13 minutes or until they are done and bake the regular sized ones for 20-22 minutes.
Honey Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
4 oz. cream cheese
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. honey
2 cups powdered sugar
a splash of milk
Mix the butter until it's fluffy. Then add in the cream cheese and mix those two together. Add in the cinnamon and honey and mix together and then added in powdered sugar about a cup at a time until you get the consistency you want. You can add some milk also to smooth it out. I put this into a plastic pastry bag and just squirted blobs on to my cupcakes. It worked out pretty well. If you hate pumpkin, this icing would probably still be good on a regular spice cake. In other words, I loved this icing.
People at work loved these (ok well they ate them all). If you want to impress people, make them mini cupcakes. People are easily fascinated by miniature versions of normal things.
Did anyone else celebrate boss's day?
When is regular employee day?
