Calling all Pumpkin Lovers
Pumpkin. One of my favorites. So far I've made pumpkin bars, muffins, bread & pie. So why not pumpkin buttercream for little cakes? It's easy and simple. Just make a regular buttercream frosting. See my previous post on this and add 3 or more tbs of pumpkin. I like the Libby's Pumpkin Pie mix as it has more flavor. You may have to add a bit more powdered sugar to keep the correct consistency. I used this on my mini cupcakes this week and also made Dark Chocolate Whoopie Pies with pumpkin buttercream filling. The result was delicious. The color of the buttercream was a pale pumpkin color & you could always add more pumpkin along with sugar but not too much as you will spoil the consistency. This is worth trying. Let me know what you think.
