These easy pumpkin spice cupcakes are delicious and pssst….they come from a boxed cake mix. Why not celebrate fall with these fun cupcakes that are so easy to make.
Pumpkin spice with a cream cheese frosting for a delicious, simple fall recipe idea with lots of pumpkin flavor.
I wanted to do something simple that could be made quickly since that is what this island is about. Plus, coming back from vacation, I did not have a lot of ingredients in the house. I am out of fruit and a few staples, but I had a few necessary ingredients.
So I started with a spice cake mix and went from there to create these Pumpkin Pie Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting, which are really flavorful and taste like fall in a cupcake.
These are always a hit and they are so easy to make.
These are so simple to make with a cake mix and they actually taste like muffins when you bake them. But they really go up a notch when you add a nice cream cheese frosting.
