Yummy Pumkin Cupcakes!

For these yummy cupcakes I used a pumpkin bread recipe from this blog Butter Required, you can click on that and it will take you to the YUMMY recipe! It made me 34 cupcakes! It is good all by itself, but I decided to be even more evil and add some cream cheese frosting on top!! SO GOOD! This is my recipe for awesome cream cheese frosting(I made a double batch of this and it was perfect for the amount of cupcakes, especially if you want to frost the way I did!)...

Cream Cheese Frosting

3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract

Blend butter and cream cheese together till it is smooth, sometimes microwaving a little (15 sec) helps. Add vanilla and powdered sugar and blend until smooth.

Here are some pics to tempt you...

To frost like this cut a hole in a corner of a ziplock bag and then fill with the frosting! Squeeze around top of cupcake till you get to center! So pretty and professional looking!

Oh yeah! Cannot wait to make again for Thanksgiving! YUM!

That is crazy because I was just thinking I wish I had an extra good recipe for some cupcakes for a friends birthday. Thanks
