All I have to say is yum. I saw this post and knew I had to try it. I don’t use box mixes so I used this recipe from Food Network. I also added an extra tablespoon of pumpkin to the icing to make it more orange, though it does not show in the picture. They were so moist and so good!

My only problem was that I used a pumpkin shaped cupcake pan and could not get them in the shape of a pumpkin. So they were funny looking, but they were for pre-schoolers. Pretty sure they did not care.
