This week, I absolutely needed to make something using my mini-cupcake pan and Halloween-themed. It only seemed appropriate that this baked good be of the pumpkin variety, since it is pumpkin-mayhem time. And so the pumpkin ghost cupcakes were born!
I love pumpkin cakes because they're so moist and flavorful, and nothing goes better with them than cream cheese frosting. Truly one of my favorite combinations that makes me so antsy for fall! Since cream cheese frosting is so conveniently white, I picked up some candy eyes from the grocery store (I got mine at Safeway) and added them. Another great thing about these cupcakes is how easy the decorations were! Although I do like baking-challenges, sometimes I don't want to spend hours on the decorations. This was as easy as frosting and adding the already made eyes, and I think they look adorable.
Let the holiday baking begin!
