The flavor of these was very good. I especially liked the combination of pumpkin with the maple icing. My only trouble was that these were the flatest cupcakes I have ever made. They didn't even pass the rim of the cupcake pan. It may be my fault...because I didn't have cupcake liners, but I still thought they should rise. No one seemed to care and they are almost all gone already and it hasn't even been a whole day! Thanks!
