Cute DIY Pumpkin Cupcake Recipe

Cute DIY fall pumpkin recipe for elementary teachers
Happy October friends! I love making holiday cupcakes for my class parties, and I think these pumpkin cupcakes are so cute. The great news is they are easier than they look. 

You can make them ahead of time, or even make them in class with your students. The recipe works great at an adult supervised center, or can be made with the whole class during a fall or Halloween party. All you need to do is bake the cupcakes ahead of time and bring the rest of the ingredients and let students have fun decorating them. As you can imagine, they love frosting them and adding the sprinkles and stem. 

Whether you decide to make these ahead of time or together with your class, everyone will love eating them. Here's the recipe.

  • a box of cupcake batter
  • cupcake wrappers
  • white frosting
  • yellow and red food coloring
  • orange sprinkles
  • green licorice or candy (optional)
  1. Make the cupcakes according to the instructions on the box.
  2. Color the frosting orange using a few drops of red and yellow food coloring.
  3. Frost the cupcakes with the orange frosting.
  4. Squirt four lines for pumpkin "ribs" on the cupcake using the frosting.
  5. Cover the frosting in orange sprinkles.
  6. Press a short piece of green licorice (or any green candy) in the center for the stem.
  7. Enjoy these cute cupcakes with your students!
As always, happy teaching!
