These festive Halloween pumpkin cupcakes are perfect for Halloween and all throughout the fall season. For a twist on the theme, try making them as Apple cupcakes, using a spice cake mix, and vanilla frosting dyed red with red sugar crystals. Either way, they’ll look adorable while displayed at your next festive get-together.
