I am giving this 3 stars at this time. I had to much cream cheese mixture and when added to the cup cakes it took longer to cook and I don't feel that it added to the flavor of the cupcakes. I am going to try the recipe again, but instead of cupcakes I am going to make a cake, then just add a cream cheese icing to the cake.

These were awesome cupcakes! Perfect for any fall get together. They come together quickly. Tips: 1. I used a little ground clove, nutmeg and allspice to add a little more flavor. 2. I put the cream cheese mix into a plastic bag and cut off the tip. This made it easier to put on the tops plus I could do some heart designs (with a knife) or smiley faces for the kids. Mine needed 25 minutes of baking time. But check yours just in case. Maybe it was the silicone bakeware I used.
