Pumpkin Cupcakes 8 Ways – Eight ways to decorate a pumpkin cupcake with buttercream frosting. Learn how to pipe rosette pumpkins, short pumpkins, tall pumpkins, easy pumpkins and frilly pumpkins!
Even though Halloween has come and gone, there’s no reason to end our relationship with everything pumpkin. Especially when Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. We have a vast selection of pumpkin recipes here on the blog and more than a few delicious pumpkin cupcakes (like this classic recipe and this one with Baileys and pecans)! But what about the frosting? How can you decorate a pumpkin cupcake to make it look as good as it tastes? Today I’m showing you some fun ways to pipe your frosting – some of these are tried and true classics while others are brand new. Any or all of them would be a beautiful addition to your fall harvest table. Here’s 8 Ways to Frost a Pumpkin Cupcake!
Because this project is all about the piping and words simply cannot do it justice, I’m hooking you up with a supply list and a video tutorial. I hope you give it a play to see how all eight designs come together. Some are easier than others but all are achievable with a little practice. I used our classic pumpkin cupcakes with an all butter buttercream (because cream cheese frosting won’t hold it’s shape quite as well.) If you make any of these for your fall gatherings or Thanksgiving, share it with us on Instagram so I can see your creations! Just tag @thecakeblog or use #thecakeblog. Can’t wait to see what you do with this!
