Pumpkin cupcakes

Happy Halloween! I'm celebrating with these amazing pumpkin cupcakes.


I made them in the mini size, partly because they're easier to share, and partly because I find the ratio of cream cheese frosting to cupcake to be ideal.

Anyone dressing up this year? What costumes did you find?

Also, I know I'm mean with the Friday teasers, but I just can't help it. I'll be back on Monday with a very special (and kind of long!) post.


  1. rachel- you always post something that makes me want to forget whatever else I was planning to do today- and just make good food. (or sew up a cute gym bag)

  2. Those look delish. I may be making some today.

  3. um i swear i might need to drive over at lunch to steal one of these. i've never been so tempted by anything so much on your blog before...and that's saying a lot. happy halloween!!!

  4. Yay for cream cheese frosting! These look like they have the perfect ratio indeed :)

    And yes, you ARE the master of suspense lately. Have a great weekend and I can't wait to see what's in store for monday!

  5. Rachel, the cupcakes look heavenly! Yes my friend you are a teaser now we have to wait the whole weekend!!
    I am dressing up as a chef, since i have the jacket etc... jacket. I love the excitment of halloween but normally don't dress up but friends are making me so a chef it is. What about you?
    Happy Halloween!!!

  6. Those cupcakes make my heart skip a beat! And cream cheese frosting is my favorite. Mmm.

    Happy happy Halloween! I'm going as Margot Tenenbaum tonight. :)

  7. That frosting looks divine....perfect for sticky, lickable fingers. I can't wait for this weekend, as I plan on making your recipes for quiche and applesauce :D

    And I think you should entitle your Friday posts to read "to be continued...."

    Happy Halloween with lots of treats!!

  8. whooow! pumpkin cupcakes sound amazing...maybe with cream cheese frosting, yum yum yum!

  9. Hi there! These look amazingly good, I will be making them for thanksgiving for sure! I love your blog...I looked through all your recipes and love them all. Thanks for all the wonderful and simple ideas, I can't wait to try the coconut rice pudding and the huevos rancheros style meal!!!

  10. I just had one 2 days ago...I love them! photographed beautifully my dear....xo

  11. I made ho-hum pumpkin muffins. These sounds much better! Plus that frosting would cover a myriad of sins.... :)

  12. These cupcakes look great. But I have a question: can I use real pumpkin insides instead of the canned stuff. I have a couple pumpkins left over from Halloween that I never got around to carving because I was to busy finishing the sewing of my costume & I'm trying to find recipes to use them up.
