How to Make Pumpkin Spice Filled Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix spice cake with ingredient on box. Line 24 cupcake cups with paper and fill each one with batter.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.
  3. While cupcakes are baking, make the filling. Mix the softened cream cheese with the pumpkin.
  4. Add the powdered sugar.
  5. Add the pie spice.
  6. Lastly, add the Cool Whip and beat until totally mixed. The Cool Whip should be thawed before using. Set this filling aside.
