Pumpkin Cupcakes

I am making pumpkin shaped cupcakes for the Harvest Dinner next Monday.

They are fun to make and would be perfect for the holidays, too.

I purchased orange and white paper cupcake liners from Amazon, bought a bag of pretzel sticks, tinted white frosting orange and made my favorite chocolate cake batter. You could use store-bought cake mix if you wanted.

Once the cupcakes were baked and cool, I frosted them and twirled the little “pumpkin” in orange sugar (also available on Amazon). The stem is a pretzel stick broken in half.

The leaves are mint and from the garden.

This batch was a test run and will be shared with friends and co-workers tomorrow.  I hope they like them.

I think they are a sure thing. Who doesn’t like homemade chocolate cupcakes!
