I was asked to make pumpkin cupcakes and chocolate cupcakes for a party. I searched alot of recipes and since I ran out of sugar making the chocolate ones, I decided to use a cake mix recipe for the pumpkin ones, with my own twist. I like the combo of spices rather than just pimpkin pie spice. They were a big hit and led to an order for 18 of them in a few days. Enjoy!
