This is another family favorite. Two of my children have November birthdays, and one of them usually requests Pumpkin Cupcakes as their special treat. Easy and VERY good!
Blend cake mix, pumpkin, eggs, oil, and water until moistened. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.
Pour into muffin cups until 3/4 full.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 16-21 minutes. Cool, frost, and decorate. Makes 18 cupcakes.
Note: The decorations tend to dissolve if they are put on very far in advance. Add decorations right before serving.
