Pumpkin Latte Cupcakes

So you remember how I said I love the fall?!

Well someone else also loves the fall. The boy.

Though his reasons for loving it seems to be a little thing called a pumpkin. I tell him I want to make a cheesecake, and I get “A pumpkin pie?” I say I want to make him cookies, and I get “A pumpkin pie?” A cake?

A pumpkin pie?"

The thing is, I dislike pumpkin pie. I know, call me un-American, but it’s true. I do, however, love Pumpkin Lattes, so when I found a recipe for Pumpkin Latte cupcakes, I was super pumped!

I set out to make these gems today, when I ran into a snag in the plan.

We don’t have cupcake/muffin baking pans.

What?! Who am I ? I’m like obsessed with cupcakes! Literally! I have bread pans, a Bundt pan, spring form pans, cookie sheets, round cake pans, rectangle cake pans, the list goes on, but not one cupcake pan?!

So guess who got the privilege of running to the store?

Thanks, honey. <3

So I set out to making them.

I found the recipe via Pinterest [where else?!] and you can read the original recipe [here]. It’s a super easy recipe, though I would probably be cursing all things baking if it weren’t for my Kitchenaid Mixer. Here is a photo montage of the process. <3

The result?

Shane told me I was allowed 1/2 of exactly one, since they are all his.

I deem that a success! <3 These will definitely be making more of an appearance in this household.
