Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting // The most delicious frosting for your cakes, cupcakes, and cookies with the perfect hint of pumpkin! Try this Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting on my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes for a tasty treat! | Tried and TastyI’m a huge cream cheese frosting fan. Buttercream frosting is good, but there’s just something about a cream cheese frosting that is great. When I was making my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes I decided to add a festive frosting flavor to them. I was originally going to go with plain, but then when I realized I had just a little bit of pumpkin puree leftover I knew I needed to add it to my frosting. The end result? The most amazing frosting with the perfect hint of pumpkin perfect for your fall cakes, cupcakes, and cookies.

One of my absolute favorite recipes for Cream Cheese Frosting I posted several years back. Keeping that recipe in mind, I altered it ever so slightly and ended up with a bowl of the most perfectly fall yummy goodness. I had made the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes for a work potluck, but decided to double the recipe and make a bundt cake as well. I’m a huge bundt cake fan (they always seem to work better for me, and I think they are prettier or course). If you’d like to make a bundt cake as well all you’d need to do is grease & flour your bundt pan, then bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes (until a toothpick inserted comes out clean). Frost with your Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting and voila! You’ve got a beautiful and delicious dessert perfect for your holiday party!
