Cupcakes for a Cause

7 Nov

I know another Monday cupcake post. I’m sorry. Cupcakes are just too adorable and tasty not to want to bake all of the time. However, I did have a reason to bake these little cuties … and yes, a better reason then to just adorn my FAB new cupcake tree (you don’t want to get me started on this).

At work a few of my co-workers are running a 5k to raise money for a local food bank. To help raise money for one of the teams, we took it back to elementary school and hosted a bake sale. The opportunity to bake & supporting a great cause? Count me in! I baked these to-die-for pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese cinnamon frosting in hopes to raise money for the food bank.

Ingredients – Cake
-1 box yellow cake mix (don’t tell my grandma!)
-3 eggs
-1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
-1 cup of water

Directions
-mix the cake mix, pumpkin and eggs
-slowly add in water
-scoop into lined cupcake trays and bake for 18 minutes

Ingredients-Frosting
-1 8 oz package of cream cheese, softenened
-1/2 cup butter softened
-1 1/2 tsp vanilla
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
-4 cups powdered sugar

Directions
-Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla on medium until light and fluffy
-Blend in spices
- Gradually beat in powdered sugar

I wish I could take credit for these delightful cupcakes, but these beauties were created by my boyfriends amazing sister. Thank you for being awesome and even bigger thanks for introducing me heaven in cupcake form!!
