These mini pumpkin cupcakes will fit right in at any Fall event or for Thanksgiving dessert. Use your favorite recipe or boxed mix for the cupcakes. I originally made these for Reader’s Digest.
To make mini pumpkin cupcakes
you will need:
Mini baking cups (orange or fall theme)
Orange food coloring
Green fruit roll-ups
Prepare mini cupcakes in printed or orange baking cups. Let cool completely. Tint frosting orange. Working with one cupcake at a time, frost the cupcake with a knife or spatula, and immediately dip in orange sprinkles, generously coating the top.
Unroll a green fruit roll-up. To make the stems, use the scissors to cut a rectangle about 1 ½ by 1 inch. Starting at a short side, roll stems and set aside. Snip strips from the green fruit roll-up about ¼ inch by 2 ½ inches. Twist and curl the strips and place on the cupcakes, securing one end at the center by pressing a stem into the cupcake.
