Should you refrigerate these cupcakes?

Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • Make sure to use pumpkin puree (also called “pure pumpkin”) and not pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin pie filling is filled with sugar and other ingredients, while pure pumpkin is just pumpkin.
  • Don’t overfill the cupcake moulds. The cupcakes will expand as they bake. Only fill them 1/2-2/3rds of the way full. If you overfill them you’ll end up with batter overflowing from the pan.
  • Let the cupcakes cool completely before icing to prevent the icing from melting on the cupcakes.
  • Use room temperature non-dairy butter for the icing and whip it up well in the mixer before adding the sugar. Using cold butter can cause there to be little lumps in the icing.
