As soon as October rolls around, I’m all about pumpkin spice lattes. I basically drink my weight in their deliciousness and go poor since they cost about $5 a drink. Well, now I can get all that flavor in delicious cupcake form.
Bonus: These cupcakes are so easy to make with boxed cake mix and canned pumpkin.
