Cinnamon Cupcakes with Pumpkin Pie Frosting

(Adapted from

For the Cupcakes:

-1 box white cake mix

-1 cup water

-½ cup veggie oil

-3 eggs

-2 teaspoons cinnamon

Combine all ingredients and fill a lined cupcake pan. Bake at 325 degrees for ~20min or until toothpick comes out clean.


For the Pumpkin Pie Frosting:

16oz vanilla buttercream frosting

-½ cup pure pumpkin puree

-1 teaspoon cinnamon

-1 teaspoon nutmeg

-2-4 Tablespoons cornstarch

Combine all ingredients and mix on a medium speed until combined. If your frosting is too thin, add more cornstarch (or meringue powder). I used closer to 4 T to get my frosting thick enough, so adjust and add more/less according to your frostings consistency. Frost cooled cupcakes, and top with a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. Enjoy!
