German Chocolate Spice cupcakes with Pumpkin butter frosting!   Trust me…. Yummy!

We are so excited to host Kristen from Dear Piper today!  Her blog is adorable; seriously, head over there next!  Here’s Kristen:

Hey I’m Kristen from Dear Piper, and I’m so honored to have been asked to be a Guest here!
I am in love with the Fall season! The crisp air, The turning leaves, the FOOD, and Halloween is only weeks away! Now this is My favorite time of year! 
We may be losing some sunshine ( in New York 🙁 ) but we’re gaining some awesome fruits….. PUMPKINS!
 This is one of my favorite desserts for the fall season, and I hope you’ll enjoy them just as much as my family and I do!  



Spiced German Chocolate Cupcakes with Pumpkin Butter Frosting!

 sorry the lighting in our tiny kitchen is awful! 


Here’s the scoop! 
You’re going to need:
1 box of Duncan Hines German chocolate cake mix ( sad I know, but we spice it up :/)
1 8oz pkg Cream Cheese
1 stick of butter substitute
1/2 C pumpkin puree ( Libby or any other pure pumpkin product)
2-3 C Powdered Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 Teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg for cake mix
1 teaspoon ginger
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon

Now let’s start Baking! 
Follow the directions carefully and thoroughly on the Cake mix Box but add your Nutmeg and a pinch of ginger.. The directions say to beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Once your 2 minutes are up, continue mixing on low for another 2-3 minutes. Just until it’s light and fluffy, like a liquid marshmallow 🙂
 Pour mix into your cups and pop them into the oven for the time allotted on the box. 


The Frosting:
Beat cream cheese and butter until smooth and even on a medium speed. ( Should take no more than 5 minutes… it gets stuck, so just take a knife and scrap until its all in your bowl again. 
add vanilla, spices, pumpkin puree & beat for another 2 minutes or until its mixed evenly. 
Add your sugar by 1/2 cups at a time. After blending, taste test! You want it just sweet enough for your own taste. Me, I don’t usually use more than 1 and a half cups unless I get bugged by my husband. He is a Super-holic! 

Once all your sugar (that you desire) is blended in well , pop your frosting in the Fridge for no less than 15 minutes. This helps thicken your frosting and it’s easier to work with. IT should come out a nice spreadable butter consistency!

Once your cupcakes are cool and your frosting is thick start spreading it on thick! It’s so light and fluffy and the two flavors, Chocolate and Pumpkin, complement each other amazing well!

Since October is literally around the corner, I made mine a little festive to get everyone in the halloween spirit!

Well that’s it! I hope some of you try out the pumpkin frosting, it’s to die for!!! And head over to dear piper for more halloween tricks and treats! 🙂

And if you’re not convinced yet of how talented Kristen is, check out her latest Halloween goody bag (for your goodies!):

Thank you Kristen!
So head over to Dear Piper and show her some love!

    What you said made a lot of sense. But, think about this, what if you added a little content? I mean, I dont want to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added something to maybe get peoples attention? Just like a video or a picture or two to get people excited about what youve got to say. In my opinion, it would make your blog come to life a little bit.
