Pumpkin Cupcakes with Pumpkin Frosting

Let me say first that I am sick of pictures of cupcakes...they are everywhere! They have taken over my favorite food shows they are all over the internet and there is a cupcake shop on every street corner! Enough already....cupcakes are so yesterday, can't we find a new food toy to play with?
Now that being said, I have to share with you the easiest cupcake recipe you will ever have....but I can tell you right now, it's going to be a long time before you see another cupcake on this blog so enjoy!

  • 1 18 oz box of vanilla moist cake mix
  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice mix
  • 1 cup water
Mix it up and throw it in a cupcake lined pan and bake following the directions on the box. That's it, no eggs or oil. How cool is that?
  • 1 8 oz block of cream cheese (1/3 less fat works great too)
  • 1/3 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
Whip it up with your electric mixer. Put in the fridge for about 30 minutes before frosting your cupcakes (longer if you are piping it on)... and Bob's your uncle!
