    MarthaStewartWanabe's Note:

    This is an easy, festive recipe for autumn. I made this recipe with our nursing home residents in celebration of our October birthdays. They really enjoyed the aroma of the baking cupcakes and frosting them. We inserted pretzel sticks into the center of each orange-colored frosted cupcake to make them look like little pumpkins. What fun we had! This would also be a fun children's project. Enjoy! (Note: preparation time does not include time for cupcakes to cool.)

      These were very good and full of flavor. I followed the recipe to a T and they turned out wonderful and were very easy to make. I thought the frosting was extra special since it had pumkin in it and my son liked the orange frosting!
