Very yummy for a lighter recipe. We really enjoyed it. Super easy and fast. Will definately use over and over. I did make this as a 13x9-cake instead of the cupcakes tho, but that doesn't matter in the taste! :)

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!!

Simply amazing recipe. Easy to do and so moist. I didn't use the frosting recipe here but used a different frosting. I added a Rolo to each cupcake on top of a small layer of batter then put the remaining batter on top of the Rolo and followed the baking directions. Gives the cupcake that little bit extra something with the chocolate and caramel flavor in there. YUM!!!

These are delicious and super easy!!! I made them for a work Pot Luck and for a friends Birthday and everyone raved. The combination of Pumpkin Spice with the Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting is amazing. I dusted the icing with some Cinnamon Sugar...YUM!!! I'll definitely be making these alot as I love pumpkin. They would be great with the addition of some mini semi sweet chocolate chips in the batter.

These were DELICIOUS!! I made them for work and everyone raved about them! I just used plain vanilla icing (easier) and they were still AMAZING!

I made these cupcakes for my daughters first birthday party and everyone loved them. In fact that they are still talking about them. They were delicious and not too sweet. Thanks for the great recipe.
