I found this absolutely spectular pumpkin pie mix by Farmer's Market at Earth's General Store. It's flavored to perfection for this application. Farmer's Market goes the extra mile by ensuring that the cans that their beautiful organic pumpkin pie mix comes in have BPA- free liners!
This is my second time making this recipe - and it was by request from my DD Nicole who celebrated her 30-something birthday yesterday. She was my beautiful Christmas surprise in 1979! She was supposed to be my New Year's baby but came a wee bit early and consequently I rushed out of the house with half-baked xmas cookies left in the oven (I did turn it off). I also had request to make some vanilla cupcakes by my other DD Rachel and I love how they turned out so here's a pic of them and of my two lovely darling daughters! I used the same recipe as the salted caramel vanilla cupcakes but I took away 2 tablespoons of white flour and subbed with 2 tablespoons of tapioca starch and will do that again for future cupcakes. I think it makes it a little lighter tasting which I like for vanilla cupcake. I used Let's Do Confetti Sprinklez for a little added glam! I used smucker's strawberry topping in the icing to get the delicate pink color - worked nicely and gave it a nice little tang.
