These fall cupcakes are so adorable and easy to make. Use a box cake mix to simplify this recipe and create cute pumpkin cupcakes in about an hour!
The candy corn pumpkins are only available in the fall, so stock up now while they are in stores. I don’t eat a lot of candy, but these pumpkins are so addictive! They are one of my favorite treats.
Occasionally I use pre-made frosting by Wilton. It’s already in the tube, so you don’t have to make your own and get out your piping bag and tips.
While I think homemade frosting tastes better, I’m typically making cupcakes like these at the last minute, so anything I can do to save time works for me.
Yield 12 cupcakes
