Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes

How to make it

For the cupcakes/frosting:

  1. Prepare devils' food cupcakes according to package directions on box. Let cool completely.
  2. While your cupcakes are cooling, prepare frosting.
  3. Mix together sugar and butter on low speed.
  4. Increase speed to medium and beat for approximately three minutes.
  5. Add vanilla and milk and beat on medium for another minute or so.
  6. Add more milk if necessary.
  7. Frost cupcakes once cooled.

Yield: About 12 frosted cupcakes.

For the Circus Peanut Toppers:

  1. Take one Circus Peanut and cut it in half.
  2. Take one of the halves and roll in your palm until round and smooth.
  3. Using a toothpick, make vertical lines on the Circus Peanut "pumpkin," mimicking the ridges on a pumpkin.
  4. Cut a sliver from a green gumdrop and place on top of your pumpkin to create the stem.
  5. Place a pumpkin (or two) on top of each cupcake. The frosting will keep the pumpkin in place.
