Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

With fall comes all sorts of yummy pumpkin recipes. 

And I

Did you see the Pumpkin Spice Muffins that Leslie reviewed last week?


So when Keri from Shaken Together linked these up to my Inspiring Creativity Linky Party I immediately pinned them and added the ingredients to my shopping list.  One problem ~ even though they were pretty simple ingredients I couldn't find all of them while shopping {maybe it's a Canadian thing?}.  So I improvised with what I could find and have posted my recipe below.  Please visit Keri HERE for her {amazing looking} original recipe.

For the cupcake:
1 pkg carrot cake mix
12 oz pure pumpkin
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk

For the whipped topping:
1 pkg instant white chocolate pudding mix
1 cup milk
1 small tub of Cool Whip

Mix the cupcake ingredients together.  The consistency will be a bit thicker than traditional cake batter.

Drop 3-4 tbsp fulls into cupcake liners.  Smooth out the batter if necessary.

Bake as directed on the cake mix box.

While the cupcakes are baking, mix together the topping.  When the cupcakes are cool, pipe on the whipped topping with an icing bag and 1M icing tip.

A little piece of fall heaven.

I give this recipe five spoons out of five!

Really!  How can you go wrong with pumpkin and white chocolate?
