The "Leaf Peeper's Cupcake" Recipe

It's that time of year again! The residents that dwell just below New England are making their way up to see how gorgeous our foliage is! They swoop in just in time to snap a few pictures, pick some apples, and buy pumpkins to carve for Halloween! Having so much to see and get done here in the leaf peeper's weekend to New England means not having a lot of time to bake and prepare goodies to enjoy! Look no further! It's possibly THE recipe meant for the ultimate leaf peeper! This pumpkin cupcake recipe is perfect for fall--and leaf peepers!
Recipe adapted from All Recipes dot com


    • 1 package of Spice cake mix
    • 1 can of Libby's 100% pure pumpkin
    • 3 eggs
    • 1/3 cup of water
    • 1/3 cup of vegetable oil
    • 1 container of or homemade cream cheese frosting
    • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon for sprinkling on top
    • A mini muffin/cupcake tray and cupcake wrappers
    • The Martha Stewart Mini Cupcake Tree (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350.
Blend and whip your cake mix, pumpkin, eggs, oil and water. The consistency you're looking for is well mixed, but it will be difficult to do if you're blending and whipping by hand so get ready to work on those biceps!
    1. When you're done whipping, fill the tray about 1/2 way.
    2. Bake for 18-20 mins.
    3. Let them cool away from the oven and then spread your cream cheese frosting, and then lightly sprinkle cinnamon on top! OH! And it tastes JUST like a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice latte!
