Ghostly Pumpkin Cupcakes by cakecrumbs Ghostly Pumpkin Cupcakes by cakecrumbs
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…

Moar Halloween:

why is it frowned upon? on what reason?

Only cause we use it exclusively in savoury dishes. To most people, using pumpkin in a dessert is akin to saying you made brussel sprout flavoured ice cream or a pea mousse for dessert. People will wrinkle their nose up at you and call you crazy.

I would never have thought of that for the two toned icing, what a brilliant and easy idea!  I must try this.  ^_^

It's soooo much fun. I'm going to gradually take videos of lots of different effects you can get with it and compile a larger tute later on (hopefully!)
