I love how simple cream cheese icing is. I always have those ingredients on hand.
Those weird little candy pumpkins are my guilty pleasure. I never buy them but if I see them anywhere I grab an entire handful.
Oh my, I've never tried cupcakes with any sort of filling before but pumpkin and cheese cream are irresistible!
I love cream cheese icing, but cream cheese filling!? Yum!
