Some Yummy Cupcakes & A Giveaway!

So, I decided to do my next countdown starting in December on my "Top 10 Appetizers". That's the majority of what you guys voted for and it makes sense with Christmas and New Years coming up.
Anyway, here are some delicious cupcakes that are so easy to make! Even without the frosting, they are moist and yummy.
**Giveaway at the bottom**




"Jeweled Pumpkin Gems"
Ingredients:
1 package (18-1/4 ounces) yellow cake mix
1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 to 2 cans (12 ounces each) whipped cream cheese frosting

DIRECTIONS:
In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pumpkin, eggs, oil, cinnamon and baking soda; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Fill paper-lined miniature muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 12-16 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Spread with frosting. Yield: 7 dozen. **I made regular sized muffins and jumbo size muffins, about 1 dozen from each.** GIVEAWAY:
Okay, one winner will be receiving "6" different coupons including Yoplait Kids Yogurt, Pillsbury Savorings Flaky Pastry Bites, & Cocoa Puffs Combos. To enter leave me a comment telling me what state you live in. Deadline is Saturday at 4'clock p.m. CST. Enjoy!
