If you notice, we added the pumpkin to the napkins to get rid of the moisture.  This allows the frosting to maintain a good consistency.  This took about 30 minutes and worked like a charm.

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12-15
Ingredients
Cupcake
  • 1 box of spice cake mix
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ can of pumpkin
Icing
  • 4-6 cups of powder sugar (depending on frosting consistency
  • 4 oz of cream cheese
  • 1 tsp of nutmeg (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon (or to taste)
  • ¼ can of pumpkin
Instructions
  1. This can't be more simple, to make the cupcake you will combine all ingredients.
  2. Mix thoroughly and transfer to cupcake pan
  3. Cook for 12-15 on 350 degrees
  4. The icing is a little more tricky. The pumpkin has a lot of moisture, so to solve that problem, we placed the ¼ can of pumpkin on some paper towels in a bowl. Within about 30 minutes, most of the moisture was out of the pumpkin.
  5. Then you combine all ingredients.
  6. Beat icing on medium until light and fluffy.
  7. If the icing is a little 'soupy' add more powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency.
