  • Cream butter and sugar.
  • Beat in eggs and mashed banana.
  • Mix in the vanilla, flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Place cupcake liners in each cup of the tins. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter in each cupcake liner.
  • Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick poked in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool completely before frosting.
  • Cream margarine and cream cheese.
  • Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla. A little more powdered sugar can be added to make the frosting firmer if needed.
  • Add two drops of yellow food coloring to 1 drop of red food coloring to color the frosting orange. Continue to add food coloring at this ratio until the frosting is the desired shade of orange.
  • Spread frosting in a mounded fashion to create the look of the top of a pumpkin.
  • Use butter braided pretzels to create the stem. If you want to add a Jack-o-lantern face use any type of black candy that you can cut into the desired shape or black decorating sprinkles if you can find a shape that will work.
  • Store frosted cupcakes in the refrigerator.

"I made these the weekend before Halloween and the kids thought they were a lot of fun. They love banana bread so the really liked the banana cupcakes. I cut up black licorice for the face but wished I could have found something easier to use."
