Halloween Cupcakes: Pumpkin Spice Latte

Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday! I’m so glad to have you! I have updated the Cupcake Heaven page, there are over 150 designs and recipes! Check it out!!

Our Pumpkin Week continues today with these Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes! Are you a Starbucks fan? Do you love their Pumpkin Spice Lattes? If so…you will love these cupcakes! I’ve created two different versions for you today…the kiddos version with Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes and the adult version, Pumpkin Spice Latte with the addition Starbucks VIA Coffee!

A couple days ago I shared the Halloween Cookies that I made with a few Wilton products and mentioned the Halloween Cupcakes that I would be sharing today. You all know how much I LOVE Wilton products, and their Halloween line is no exemption.

Have you noticed that the Wilton section in Walmart has increased…a lot? My Walmart is now carrying about 3 times as many Wilton products as before. I was thrilled when I saw that! They have those cool Sugar Sheets like I used when I visited Wilton earlier this year, I need to get some more of those and play with them on Christmas Cupcakes!

But for now…let’s bake some Halloween Cupcakes.

Halloween Cupcake Supplies:


  1. Bake cupcakes without liners {I’m kind of hooked on this idea after baking the cupcake for the Halloween printables}
  2. Let cupcakes cool completely
  3. Cinnamon Whipping Cream {recipe with the Pumpkin Icebox Pie}
  4. Decorating – Using 2 liners, place one on the table and turn the other one inside out and place inside {Love this look…hubby actually came up with it}
  5. Place cupcake in liner
  6. Fit a decorator bag with a #1M Tip and fill with Cinnamon Whipping Cream
  7. Pipe on whipping cream, sprinkle with Hallow Pumpkin Mix and Add Pumpkin Cupcake Pick

And now because Halloween isn’t just for the kiddos…Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes with Cinnamon Whipping Cream displayed in Wilton Cupcake Wraps to add a little sophistication.
