This thanksgiving we are having…;.

I have a favorite Thanksgiving dessert. It’;s pumpkin cheesecake with caramel sauce. I enjoy it every year but its always hard to serve and takes a long time to make. It’;s worth it, but I decided that by turning those similar flavors into cupcakes this year, it would save me some time …;…;…;.and they’;re cute too!

After I put the cupcakes all together, I took a bite and all the flavors of my favorite dessert came together.In that momentburlap pillow cover diy, I decided they were even better in cupcake form!

I think I have a new favorite Thanksgiving dessert!Maybe you’;ll love it too…;…;especially all of those delicious fall flavors. The pumpkin, walnuts, caramel and cream cheese all rolled into a fantastic cupcake, will not disappoint.

Now onto the part where you can make your own.

Name CardsI used the cupcakes as name cards. You can do first initials like I did or whole names. It’;s up to you. **Cut your letters from fondant and let them dry for 24 hours on a cornstarch coated sheet pan. I made mine orange and white. You can do any colors you’;d like.

CupcakesTo make the cupcakes, I used a regular french vanilla cake mix and added to it.I baked them in cupcake liners but you can skip that step and bake then in a greased muffin pan.Makes 20-22 cupcakes Mix together:1 cake mix (french vanilla or white)1/3 cup vegetable oil2 eggs 1 cup pumpkin puree1/4 tsp nutmeg1/2 tsp cinnamon1 cup milkFill your greased muffin tins 2/3 full and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.After the cupcakes cool, put each cupcake into a glass sauce dish.**I think these are pretty common. I am pretty sure you can pick some up at Walmart. Using a melon baller or small spoon, make a small hole in the top of your cupcake. Then, pour a 1/2 tablespoon of caramel topping into the hole.(I just bought Smuckers brand caramel. Use your favorite brand or homemade. Mmmm.)The caramel will soak down into the cupcake over the next hour.You can continue to decorate as this happens. Decorating

How much frosting you need will depend on how many cupcakes you made.

Last weekend I visited the KC Symphony Designers’ Showhouse which was beautiful! Walking through the home, I realized that there is so much to take away from an old house.
