Pumpkin pie frosting is not frosting that is kinda sorta like pumpkin pie. It’s not a buttercream with some pumpkin mixed in, or a cream cheese frosting with a dash of pumpkin pie spice. Pumpkin pie frosting is honest-to-goodness pumpkin pie (minus the crust – although you could add that too if you wanted) piped onto cupcakes.
It turns out that pumpkin pie is perfectly pipe-able. Try out this pumpkin pie frosting as the ideal complement for any Fall cupcake flavor. I piped mine onto apple cobbler cupcakes. But, for other Fall cupcake inspiration, check out my top ten Fall cupcake recipes.
