Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

I was in the mood for something with pumpkin and cupcakes sounded good. I found this recipe in a fall Betty Crocker book I bought last year, but I added my own twist to it. The recipe can be found below.

Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes
Pre-heat oven to 350
Line cupcake pans with 24 paper baking cups

3 cup Original Bisquick mix
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, plus more for garnish
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup milk (I used fat free)
4 eggs
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin

Combine all dry ingredients together until combined, then add the butter until well incorporated. Add in the milk and the pumpkin until combined. Finally, add in one egg at a time until blended. Portion batter evenly among baking cups. If you don't have a portion scoop you can always use an ice cream scooper. Bake 25-30 minutes. Since everyones oven is different, be sure not to over bake them. Do a toothpick test if you aren't sure. Let them cool completely before frosting.

6 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup butter, softened
1 Tbl vanilla
6 1/2 powdered sugar

Combine the cream cheese and butter together and beat until well blended. Beat in vanilla and 3 1/2 cups of the powered sugar on low for 30 seconds, then on a higher speed beat for a minutes until fluffy. gradually on medium speed add in remaining 3 cups of powdered sugar. Frosting should be stiff enough to pipe. I used a large pastry tip and pastry bag. If you do not have these things you can always use a ziplock bag and simply cut one of the corners, or you make frost them by hand; in which case you probably may not use all the frosting.

Once they are pipped or frosted add a pinch/ flick of pumpkin pie spice to the top of each cupcakes.



Austin's Birthday

I made this cake at work for my brother. Its a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream filling and yellow tinted vanilla buttercream for the top. He chose the characters he wanted on top. This was my first free hand decoration.

My Dad's Wedding...

I asked and was asked to make my Dad's wedding cake. It was a two tried cake consisting of vanilla cake and vanilla buttercream filling with fresh strawberries and vanilla buttercream topping. Here are some pictures of the wonderful event and cake!Add Image

Reddit Cookies

My boyfriend is a huge redditor and since everyone on reddit is very helpful he asked if anyone could help me design a logo for BtheBaker. We got a least two that we were debating on so as a thank you (it was my bf's idea) we sent reddit themed cookies!

Snikerdoodle Cupcakes! YUM!

I randomly found this recipe forever ago. I made them once with my boyfriends sister and we ran into a huge problem with the seven minute frosting. It took way longer than seven minutes and was still liquid. I made them again myself and the seven minute frosting worked! We read that sometimes on moist days the frosting won't work, well the day we made them together it was misting all day and also the egg whites needed to be warm and they weren't. Since than we have made them again and the frosting was perfect! Yay for success! Enjoy!

Toy Story

My house cleaners asked me to do cupcakes and a cake Toy Story themed for there son, Diego's birthday. Here are the pics...

I was very nervous about making Buzz and Woody because I wanted them to look identical to the cartoon. These are buttercream transfers. You trace the image(s) with black buttercream and fill in the colors. The image is piped on backwards so you have to make sure the image is flipped before it is printed.

The cupcakes!
