Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Frosting

I know Halloween is over but the plan was to bake these cute cupcakes last week but due to me being unwell a lot of my baking plans didn’t happen. I purchased the candy corn and Libby’s Pure Pumpkin from a reputable online store based here in the UK that sells American produce (American Sweets). So this morning I thought better late than never and was up early and in my kitchen! I found the cupcake recipe on Lori’s blog, The Recipe Girl and if you’ve never had the pleasure of visiting her blog then I urge you to, she makes the most wonderful bakes. The Cinnamon Cream Frosting recipe I came across on Reeni’s blog, Cinnamon and Spice and Everything Nice, another drool-worthy blog. I love to mix recipes together and both recipes worked beautifully here. These spicy, moist, sweet pumpkin cupcakes with a cinnamon cream frosting represent all the wonderful flavours of autumn. Perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving and autumn!

Better late then never. I am sure going to check out that store you mentioned.
The downside of buying something from US is that everytime i get a packet i have to pay 10€ tax
