Pumpkin Cupcakes w/pumpkin mousse frosting

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


This is a easy semi-homemade cupcake. I used my favorite seasonal pudding and replaced the oil with cinnamon apple sauce. Pudding is in the frosting too.
I wait for this pudding to come out and stock up. I love it, I use in many recipes, and when pumpkin season is over I make my own pumpkin spice creamer. (its a favorite in my home!!
