Pumpkin Party 2012 & A Recipe

What better way to celebrate fall than with a pumpkin themed party and a couple craft beers.


We had a bunch of our friends over to celebrate and asked them all to bring a pumpkin dish. We had a ton of awesome dishes. Some of the entrees included Pumpkin risotto, pumpkin lasagna, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin salsa, pumpkin chili and pumpkin pizzas. Some of the desserts included pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, pumpkin snickerdoodles, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin fluff, pumpkin chex mix and pumpkin muffins. There were probably at least 12 more that I didn’t list.


Which is probably why there are all these leftovers we still have to eat…or take to work 😉

Now here is the recipe for the cupcakes I made.

Pumpkin cupcakes made with Southern Tier Pumking beer with pumpkin pie frosting.


  • White cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 cup Southern Tier Pumking beer
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

Bake cupcakes as stated on the box.

Frosting: Recipe I found on Pinterest

  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 425. Spread frosting mix in a well greased pan and cook for 35-40 mins. Cool in a refrigerator and then scoop into a frosting bag.


Themes are my favorite, especially themed parties.

What are your favorite themed parties?
