Pumpkin Spice & Sweet Potato

To wrap-up our Fall Flavors, we have the Sweet Potato Cupcake & Pumpkin Spice Cupcake!

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to attempt the Sweet Potato cupcake. I knew it would be a perfect addition to our Fall flavors because Sweet Potatoes already make fabulous pies that are commonly served during Thanksgiving & Christmas. Sweet Potatoes are also served as a lovely side dish after baking & pureeing them. They are commonly seasoned with cinnamon, brown sugar, & nuts. My mom has always made them with marshmallows and/or brown sugar. I especially love sweet potatoes and look forward to this dish every Fall & Winter season! That is why I knew that I just HAD to turn these sweet little potatoes into cupcakes! We start off with fresh sweet potatoes...we refuse to use the canned ones!

Our Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes were made very similarly, in that we use only fresh pumpkin & leave the canned pumpkin for the other cupcake companies to use;)

Every Fall season, I buy fresh pumpkins & baked them into delicious pies, muffins, shakes, & custards! I figured that if I could easily make a pumkin pie & pumpkin muffins, then I certainly can make pumpkin cupcakes! I had a lot of fun making these & the ingredients that I put in these cupcakes are very similar to what I put in my homemade pies. I use only the freshest ingredients, including Premium Korintje Cinnamon & freshly ground cloves! The cupcakes are filled with a Cinnamon Cream Cheese filling & topped with an Amaretto Buttercream Frosting! They are also, lightly dusted with cinnamon & an orange fondant pumpkin!

Please note that our Autum Delight, Pumpkin Spice, & Sweet Potato Cupcakes are seasonal only. Our Apple Pie Cupcakes are offered year around, but the apples that we use will vary depending on seasonal availability.

Look out for our special SPOOKtacular cupcakes! Fun & festive, decorated cupcakes, specifically for Halloween!
