The choice between pie and cupcakes is one of my biggest holiday dilemmas. Kara Andretta of Kara’s Couture Cakes has provided the ultimate solution with her ‘outrageously good’ pumpkin pie cupcakes. These cuppies are enough to send me into the throws of passionate, pumpkin overload! Are they really that good? Yes, they are- in fact, it was rave reviews all round; my kids loved them, my hubby loved them, and I was eating the filling with a spoon! Yes, a SPOON! It was that good! The white chocolate cream cheese frosting is the perfectly counterpoint to that rich pumpkin filling. These cupcakes would make a perfect Thanksgiving dessert offering, or a delightful holiday gift.
Kara explains, “This really all began with my testing out new vanilla cupcake recipes, and not being happy with any of them. I liked many of the versions, but they just weren’t perfect as stand-alone vanilla cupcakes. They were perfect for other things. And as I thought about how I was going to compose my pumpkin pie cuppies it hit me… THIS recipe was the right match for them ? Happy accidents!” For the full recipe and instructions, head on over to Kara’s blog.
