Thanksgiving Pumpkin Cupcakes

I know I have mentioned how much I love sweets about a million times already on this blog, but what I haven’t stated is that not only do I like to eat sweets, I like to bake them too. You never know when hostess will go bankrupt again..and one needs to be prepared in such emergencies. ūüôā

This past weekend my church had a bake sale and I knew I wanted to make something. After looking online I found this recipe and I knew it would be a winner. I followed her instructions exactly and was very very pleased with the results. Everyone at the sale raved about how good they tasted.

When it came to presentation I knew I wanted to do something a little bit different. My idea started when I found this on pinterest. I absolutely loved it. I thought it was a brilliant idea and much easier for people to eat while walking around at the festival. I even went out and bought the cups and lids and was already to go. (You can find them at GFS by the way)

After sitting down and thinking about  it, I thought it may be a little too big.  After a little more searching on pinterest I found this and decided I would combine the two ideas to get something wonderful.

In the end I ended up with these:

Like I said I wanted to combine the two ideas and that is basically what I did. I loved the idea of the spoon but wanted to keep the wrappers off so they would be easily scoopable. I also wanted to add a little label so they would know what they were buying. In the end I was VERY happy with the finished product.  Enjoy!
