One of the best ways to enjoy pumpkin is in a cupcake with a generous helping of cream cheese frosting. These pumpkin cupcakes are moist and smell amazing while baking in the oven! The aroma from the cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice fills the house with a scent that is warm and comforting.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, brown sugar, and granulated sugar.
In a medium bowl, combine the sour cream, oil, eggs and pumpkin puree.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix with a spatula to combine.
Line the cupcake pan with cupcake liners and divide batter evenly between the 24 cups. Bake on the middle rack for 20 to 25 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
While the cupcakes are baking, make the frosting. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter, cream cheese and salt. Mix until smooth, then add vanilla and then gradually add the powdered sugar and mix on low until combined. Do not overmix as that will incorporate too much air and the frosting will be too loose.
Once the cupcakes have cooled, frost the cupcakes. I used a 1M Wilton tip to create the swirl on the cupcakes and then sprinkled with some coarse sugar.
These cupcakes are all about decoration. My favorites are the monster cupcakes. They are colorful, fun and so easy to achieve the cuteness. No piping skills required. I guarantee you. You can go as crazy as you want. After all they are monsters.
