Having pumpkin in sweet things is pretty much frowned upon here in Aus. Pumpkin is seen as a savoury thing exclusively. So with Halloween approaching I thought I'd channel all that American influence into a weekend of pumpkin baking.
This was the first result.
These are spiced pumpkin cupcakes, which by themselves hot out of the oven are insanely good. But I can't leave well enough alone so I topped them with a dual-coloured cinnamon buttercream. I then decorated them with floaty ghosts made from choc-cinnamon truffles.
The recipe, as well as a tute for getting the two tone piping effect, is over at the blog: cakecrumbs.me/2013/10/29/ghost…
