  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Beat white sugar and 3/4 cup butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat pumpkin into creamed butter mixture.
  3. Mix flour, pumpkin pie spice, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, baking powder, and ginger together in a bowl; stir into creamed butter mixture, alternating with buttermilk, until batter is smooth. Fill each muffin cup 3/4-full with batter.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in muffin tin for 10 minutes before transferring to wire rack.
  5. Beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until fluffy. Beat confectioners' sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, and vanilla extract into creamed butter until frosting is smooth. Spread frosting on each cupcake.

Made exactly as written and they are super moist and great spice ratio. They don't need oil to make them moist as some reviewers suggested and they don't need extra spice

I wasn't a fan of the cupcake.

All I kept tasting was the sugar in my mouth.

This review is for the frosting only. Very good as written. Did not change a thing and it was very yummy. Will use again.

They came out incredibly dense and underdone in the center. When I left them in longer the centers were still underdone or gooey and the outsides were drying out. The icing was delicious and swe...
