Our girls are utterly obsessed with Cupcake Wars. Which is sad because we only have Netflix and not cable so they’ve seen the one season 500 billion times. It’s kind of ridiculous. I wish I was talented in the cake department but to be honest the decorating is still tricky for me. We made these pumpkin cupcakes with 7 minute maple frosting just to test our skills and it didn’t go too bad.

These cupcakes are a mix match of recipes. An old pumpkin cake with a few changes and Mom’s 7-minute frosting with Grade B maple syrup added to it. 7 minute frosting is kind of like a marshmallow frosting and you’ll need either a double boiler or a saucepan and glass mixing bowl. I use the latter.

You don’t want the bowl to touch the boiling water in the pot. Just beat the heck out of the frosting until thick and glossy.

I love these cupcakes. I took them to a chili and soup cook off (my soup won 1st place!!!) and without realizing that desserts were being judged too I placed them on the table. They won 3rd place!! Woot woot! I’d say that’s pretty good standing next to chocolate desserts. Hardly anything will ever beat chocolate in a lot of books. For me? Well I love lemon, fruit and pumpkin best. Oh and Peanut Butter. You all knew that though didn’t you. xoxo
