Pumpkin Ghost Cupcakes

This Recipe was a hit at our Trunk Or Treat on Wednesday.
I made Pumpkin Cupcakes and then frosted them with Cream Cheese Frosting.



  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground all spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten until frothy
  • 1 cup mashed cooked or canned pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup milk


Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, all spice and cloves into a bowl. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy; beat in eggs. Blend in mashed pumpkin. Stir in the sifted dry ingredients alternately with the milk, blending until batter is smooth after each addition. Spoon batter into paper-lined muffin pan cups.
Fill about 2/3 full.
Bake at 375° for 25 minutes.
Makes about 24 cupcakes
Next you Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting


1 package Cream Cheese (softened)

1 cube butter (softened)

1 tsp. vanilla

Powdered sugar


Mix together the  cream cheese and butter.  Slowly add the powdered sugar until you reach the desired consistency.  Add the vanilla.

I put the frosting in a big ziplock bag and cut a little hole in the end.  I went around the cupcake with the frosting working my way up to a little point.
You then add CHOCOLATE CHIPS for the eyes.
