MSC: Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes


For this month's Martha Stewart Cupcake Club entry, Kim from What the Whisk selected for us to make Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes with Cream Cheese frosting. The 15th definitely snuck up on me this month!! These were pretty good. My coworkers definitely enjoyed them.and it didn't take them long to disappear. Will I make them again? Ehhh probably not until I try a few more recipes. There were a couple of things that I wanted to make note of that I found when tasting them. They were really moist but mine ended up very very crumbly...almost crummy. I don't know if this was from overmixing, undermixing, or what.

I found that mine were similar in taste and texture to the zucchini spice cupcakes. These were a little more "muffin like" than my zucchini spice ones. I am looking forward to trying some other more cupcake like flavors in the future.

As with last time, I liked the flavor the icing. Cream cheese frosting is my weakness! My only wish with the frosting is that it was a little more firm. All in all though the people that ate them enjoyed them and that's what matters I guess! I hope that everyone enjoyed making these as much as I did!

Nice piping! And yes, the frosting is good enough to eat by itself; nice job with the cupcakes.

I actually really enjoyed these. Somehow mine came out light, fluffy, and cakey. But reading people's blogs, I'm hearing that a lot came out more like you described yours. They look beautiful anyways!

I agree with you--that it was almost like muffins, but more moist! I didn't try the zucchini cupcakes, so I can't fetch for that. Great job!

Your cupcakes look awesome!

I increased the spices and the pumpkin puree and they tasted great.

Thanks for baking along with us! So much fun!

I agree: the frosting was a little thin as-is. I added some extra powdered sugar to firm it up a bit and then refrigerated it in icing bags before piping it. Your frosting swirls look lovely!
