I have a confession to make: I don’t really like pumpkin and cream cheese together. Can we still be friends? I was wasting way too much time on Pinterest a few nights ago and realized two things: Apparently all other food ceases to exist besides pumpkin and apples when fall hits, and that everything is pumpkincreamcheese this , pumpkincreamcheese that.
I like cream cheese, I just don’t love it with pumpkin. So this is my blog, my cupcakes, I can frost them with whatever I want.
These cupcakes are super tender and the frosting is GOOD. I love brown sugar, and this frosting didn’t disappoint. IT’S SO FLUFFY!!
These cupcakes have a Hershey’s Pumpkin Kiss inside for a fun surprise and a little bit more of that pumpkin flavor everyone is so crazy about when the leaves start falling
Join me in sticking it to the man and make a cupcake WITHOUT cream cheese frosting!! You rebel you 😉
