Searching for a tasty dessert to make for fall that'll also look just as good as it tastes? We've found just the one, especially if you enjoy a bit of pumpkin flavor. We were inspired by the recipes Life, Love, and Sugar, and Lindsey Baked This and had to create our own pumpkin pie cupcakes (cinnamon sugar swirl cupcakes with buttercream pumpkin frosting).
This was our first attempt at creating pumpkin pie-looking cupcakes with crust, whipped cream dollop, and cinnamon on top. They ended up pretty cute, but not as much as we thought they would due to the icing tip not being small enough to create the crust edges. When we make it again (which we definitely will as they turned out delicious), we'll use a smaller icing tip to decorate the edges more precisely. We can't wait to make them again during the fall season for friends and family as these satisfied our sweet tooth!

For Cinnamon Sugar Swirl
We'd suggest halving the frosting recipe, as we had plenty more to spare for 12 cupcakes unless you'll be making 24.
