      This cupcake was very good. I took it to a pot luck and many people went back for a second, lots of compliments.I made two changes, I used a spice cake mix and I used pumpkin pie filling and omitted the spices (because that's all I had- it worked wonderfully) The texture was light and moist. I also made my own frosting using 1 pkg of softened cream cheese, whipped with about 1 cup of sifted powdered sugar. I then whipped 2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream until very stiff and gently folded the two mixtures together. Using a lg star tip I frosted the cupcakes then drizzled them with caramel (I used ice cream topping) for a finishing touch I LIGHTLY sprinkled coarse salt (sea salt) on top. The salt intensifies the caramel like none other! All the flavors meld perfectly, the extra light fluffy frosting really lets the pumpkin and caramel come through. I will be making these all fall!!

      The flavor is good, but the texture is kind of gummy. If I try these again, I would make them according to the directions on the box(with eggs, oil and water) and then just add a can of pumpkin. They definitely were easy!

      This is my new favorite recipe. I don't really make cupcakes too often but when I saw these I figured i'd give them a try seeing as it's fall. They were absolutely delicious. They were simple, light and moist, and they werent crumbly or anything. I definitely suggest trying these!!
