  5. Add on sprinkles and M&M's. Decorate however else you want. Enjoy!.

Cream Cheese: For the frosting, be sure to use a block/brick of cream cheese and not cream cheese spread in a tub. Thaw both overnight in the refrigerator, then bring to room temperature. In a larger bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and the ½ cup vegetable oil. Add the flour mixture and stir to combine. With pumpkin puree and a dash of pumpkin pie spice, these Pumpkin cupcakes are so soft, moist, flavorful, and pair perfectly with the delicious Cinnamon cream cheese frosting!
