Pumpkin cupcakes

They're not much to look at, but they were delicious. I topped them with a mediocre chocolate frosting. Martha Steward failed me there. She fails me surprisingly often when it comes to baking. This frosting was kind of drippy and thin. It just didn't have a nice texture. The instructions said it was good for piping but if I'd tried to pipe this it would have looked like a big mess.

If I'd thought about it, I'd have tried a maple frosting. If there's one thing that can almost replace chocolate, it's maple. Or toffee. Perhaps I'll branch out from chocolate eventually...but don't hold your breath.
