Jodie is the baker among the two of us, and she loves fall solely because it means more chances to get creative in the kitchen. We wanted to put together some of our favorite pumpkin spice inspired recipes that will have your mouth watering.
We put our own unique spin on the classic pumpkin spice cupcakes everyone craves– but made these super easy and fast. Want to know our little “cheat?” All you need is a generic box of pumpkin spice cake mix, some pre-made cream cheese frosting, and a few whole pecans. And voila, a delicious fall dessert ready to enjoy.
Pop these babies on a three-tiered tray and they make a beautiful party display. It’s seriously all about the presentation.
These Pumpkin Spice Cupcake “cheats” are easy and yummy– a match made in heaven!
