pumpkin cupcakes + cream cheese frosting

Remember I was supposed to make this amazing Custard Apple Tart... Well, I decided to change it up & make Pumpkin Cupcakes with Homemade Cream Cheese frosting. I started dinner {old fashion homemade chili} & then started mixing the cupcakes. I new the kids really wanted to eat them that night so I decided to pop them in the oven while we were eating dinner. I usually start baking after dinner & then they eat whatever I have baked the next day because it's too late in the evening to be eating sweets. My plan worked this Sunday. The dishes were done... The oven rang & warm pumpkin cupcakes were ready to eat. So the kids {including my husband & myself} got in our PJ's, sat on the couch & watched, How to train a Dragon & gobbled up our goodies. I do have to say, we had a wonderful Sunday despite the rainy weather... We were so cozy & crazy together! Hope everyone else had a great dry weekend...

Pumpkin Cupcakes recipes:
Go to Trader Joe's & pick this box up {pumpkin bread & muffin mix}:

:: follow their instructions ::
Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 stick of unsalted butter
1 8oz of cream cheese
2 to 3 cups of powdered sugar
1 tsp. of Vanilla
:: blend it all together... Everything does need to be at room temperature::



  1. I always see these at TJs and never pick them up. I think I'm going to have to go back and get a box today. BTW, check out my site...I made pumpkin muffins that were actually healthy and they were seriously yummy too. Pumpkin is just TOO good!

  2. just made these the other day after they were handing out samples at tj's. sooo yum!

  3. well, believe it or not I made the same thing on Saturday night, not the chili part, but the Trader joes pumpkin bread turned cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Great minds DO think alike!

  4. How fun does that sound!!

    Miss you guys! : /
