Spiced Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing

I am no natural baker but I spotted Libby's Pumpkin Puree in Waitrose and thought it would be very autumnal/festive/greedy of me to give pumpkin cupcakes a go...they didn't go so well. I took them out of the oven way too early, used too much pumpkin puree - I halved a recipe then didn't want to waste the rest of the pumpkin so chucked the rest into the mixture and needless to say I won't be winning Bake Off next year. I then tried this recipe by Martha Stewart and although mine didn't look as good as hers they tasted pretty yummy!

Cream cheese icing is a gift from the gods and probably my favourite thing! I followed a BBC recipe here and smothered it all over my slightly sunken cupcakes. 
Give them a go for Halloween - I'm sure they won't be as scary as my first attempt - turns out following the recipe really helps.
