Quick Desserts with Mama Jen: Pumpkin Cupcakes

This is the easiest recipe for semi homemade pumpkin cupcakes.

What you need:

Spice cake mix
3 large eggs
1/3 cup of oil
1/3 water
1 TBSP cinnamon
1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
cream cheese icing

You don't have to add the cinnamon but i like to put extra. You can also substitue the oil for apple sauce to make it a little healthier.

I had to use store bought cream cheese this time but homemade cream cheese is so much better and really simple to make.

Cream Cheese Icing

2 8 oz cream cheese packages softened
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup softened butter (i prefer unsalted)
2 cups of sifted powder sugar

In a bowl mix the cream cheese first, then add other ingredients slowly until mixed!

Hey Mama Jen! I just wanted to let you know that I was at Sally the other day and I spotted the Out the Door Holographic top coat! It's located right next to the regular Out the Door top coat in the manicure aisle. Hope that helps! :)
