Now into the technical part of the pumpkin spice latte cupcakes

This cupcake is super super soft, and (I know a lot of you hate that word) moist so you have to handle them with care when taking them out of the oven, the are delicate (and delicious!!!)

If you want to make the frosting vegan make sure to use a vegan butter

If you want to make the cupcake gluten free substitute the flour for a 1 for 1 gluten free baking mix. I tried it with a all purpose gluten free flour and the result was just the same as with traditional flour so pick your favorite brand

You can find the recipe for the frosting here

Now to the kitchen!
