Pumpkin cupcakes are good on their own, but this pumpkin cupcake with rum and maple kicks it up a notch. The cupcakes smell distinctly of rum, but when you bite into them, you can taste the pumpkin and just a tiny hint of the maple. They are moist and lighter than you might expect from a pumpkin dessert and they’re filled with Fall spices.
The best part is that I didn’t have to throw the pumpkin cupcakes in the trash. I actually made two batches of pumpkin cupcakes before this one that were so bad that I threw them out. They weren’t even good enough to bring into to an office full of people who eat anything. I would have completely given up on pumpkin were it not for the fact that my cupcake class (that I am teaching this weekend) includes pumpkin cupcakes. I needed to get a recipe that I loved. Found it!

Fall Into Winter Roundup
I am entering these cupcakes into Ivy’s Fall Into Winter Roundup.
I was so excited about the roundup . Not only did I have to ask if it was OK to get my entry in late, but then I completely forgot to enter. I had to go back and add to this to the post. Sorry, Ivy! You’re the best!
Cupcake Love Connection Update
I have been talking to Minko and her cupcake for Groom 2.5 will be done soon! I can’t wait for the recipe! She said she should have it next week. Read the original Cupcake Love Connection post if you don’t know what I am talking about.
