Pumpkin Cupcakes

Today is my son Nolan's 5th birthday. I decided to make him some pumpkin cupcakes. This recipe also has some cream cheese frosting but my Nolan wants chocolate :)

I got this from Cooks.com

Cupcakes:
4 eggs
1 C. Vegetable oil
2 C. Sugar
2 C. Flour
1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. Canned pumpkin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs in a large mixing bowl, add next 6 ingredients and mix well with an electric mixer. Spoon batter into paper lined muffin pans, filling 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool and then frost.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
1/2 pkg. cream cheese softened
3 tbsp. butter, softened
2 1/2 C. sifted powered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla

Combine cream cheese and butter, beat until light and fluffy. Add remaining ingredients. Beat until smooth.


Chocolate Frosting:

2 3/4 cups confectioners sugar
6 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
6 Tbsp. butter
5 Tbsp. evaporated milk (or regular milk)
1 Tsp. vanilla

Directions:
1. in a medium bowl, sift together the confectioners' sugar and  cocoa and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, cream butter until smooth, then gradually beat in sugar mixture alternately with evaporated milk. Blend in vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy. Adjust consistency with more milk or sugar if needed. I believe this is from allrecipes.com
