pumpkin cupcakes

Last year I was chief cupcake maker for my middle daughter's soccer team.  I made the job up for myself when the sign up went around the table, and I didn't particularly like any of the options.  The horrible thing is, I never made cupcakes the entire season.  I was packing, and moving and my life was in complete disorder!

Last weekend there was a team party and I had the chance to redeem myself!  I made pumpkin cupcakes from scratch.  The recipe can be found here... http://southernfood.about.com/od/pumpkins/r/bl40104c.htm

Oh my, they were good.  They could be served as "muffins" too.  (What is the difference, anyways?)  I frosted them with cream cheese frosting:
1 bag powdered sugar
1 stick butter (softened)
8 oz. cream cheese
1or 2 tsp. of almond extract
Beat the above together so it is light and fluffy.  The ingredients are kind of ridiculous aren't they?

My youngest helped me frost them.  I think she is awfully cute.

Happy baking!
