~ Pumpkin Cupcakes ~

~Cupcakes~
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
1/4 t ginger
1/4 t salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla extract
1 cup canned pumpkin

~Cream Cheese Frosting~
3 cups confectioners sugar
1--8 oz pkg cream cheese
4 T butter
1 t lemon juice
Yellow and red food coloring
Pretzel nuggets (stems)
Green gumdrops (leaves)

Preheat the oven to 350F.
Line a 12 cup muffin tin with bake cups. In a large mixing bowl,
stir together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger,
and salt. Set the mixture aside. In a separate mixing bowl, stir
together the oil and sugar. Whisk in the eggs and stir in the
vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients
and gently stir the mixture until well combined. Stir the pumpkin
into the batter until it is thoroughly combined. Spoon the batter
into the lined muffin tins. Bake for 20 minutes or until a knife
inserted in the middle of one cupcake comes out clean. Let the
cupcakes sit in the tin for 10 minutes and then remove to a rack
to cool thoroughly. Meanwhile, make the Cream Cheese Frosting. In
a medium-size mixing bowl, beat together the confectioners sugar,
cream cheese, butter, and lemon juice until smooth. Add about 12
drops of yellow food coloring and 4 drops of red food coloring
and beat until the frosting turns orange. Frost each cupcake.
Use pretzel nuggets for the pumpkin stems and cut flattened
green gumdrops into leaves.
Makes 12 cupcakes
