RECIPE: PUMPKIN SPICE CUPCAKES w/ PUMPKIN SPICE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING!

It’s officially fall and already the leaves have started turning colors and the nights have become chilly. This is one of my FAVORITE seasons because this is the perfect blend between summer and winter for me. Plus it means we get to see pumpkin EVERYWHERE. From Starbucks and their PUMPKIN SPICE lattes to PUMPKIN PIE, I have really become obsessed with pumpkins and I wanted to create an easy and tasty pumpkin dessert I could enjoy with a hot bevy.

Voila…say hello to Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes! And to make this recipe even BETTER, I’m using a creamy Pumpkin Spice Buttercream frosting that is HEAVEN! Seriously, try not licking the spoon or bowl!

I made these cupcakes for a recent get together and everyone just gobbled them up. So try this recipe at home and thank me later!
