Cupcake lessons no 2

My second lesson in cupcakes is not to try using anything other than a basic buttercream frosting for elaborate cakes. This is what they are supposed to look like.

I thought it would be really cute to make pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and then use cream cheese frosting. I'd seen a lovely design in my 'hello cupcake' book so it seemed pretty straightforward.

Cream cheese frosting doesn't behave the same, so it was all a little on the gooey side! I'll know for next time that this frosting is only good for a quick piping in the shape of a flower.

I'm in such a quandry, they tasted just wonderful, but look worthy of a cakewrecks post!

Thanks to Martha Stewart, for the recipes: Cupcakes and Frosting. I followed them exactly! And thanks to Hello Cupcake for the decoration idea.
