    Fall is my favorite season, and pumpkin spice anything is usually a good sign that the season's here. These cupcakes look delicious!

    These sound really interesting! I've never had a pumpkin spice latte (I've never even heard of them!) and I don't think you can get pumpkin puree in a can here, so I'll just look at how lovely your pictures are!

    Hi, Tessa!
    Hi from Moscow (Russia). My name is Camilla, and though my English is not very good, I decided to write to you. I'm in love with your site. Recipes are excellent, and the pictures just beautiful! So many recipes caught my attention, but I decided to start with these wonderful pumpkin cupcakes.
    We, unlike your warm climate, has long been a real fall occurred, and this dessert is what we really need. I want to say a big THANK YOU for the recipe! Cupcakes turned out great. Will definitely make them again. And not only them)).

    Hi Tessa,
    Made these and they are delicious! Can the batter be used to make a cake and if so what size pan or pans would work for the amount of batter? Thanks!

    Are you sure it’s 3 TABLESPOONS of espresso powder? I used 4 heaping teaspoons and they turned out nicely.
