Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 15-20mins (Rotating halfway for even baking)

Makes: 12



  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees
  • Prepare a cupcake tin with baking paper cases/ or use a silicon baking tray. Place dry mix into a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the melted butter, eggs and milk.
  • Combine the wet and dry mix well and spoon into the cupcake cases.
  • Bake on the top shelf got 15-20 mins, rotating halfway.
  • Remove from Oven and cool on cooling rack
  • Once cooled completely, you can ice.

*We recommend chilling these in the fridge or freezer for at least 2 hours prior to icing.


  • We used our standard vanilla frosting recipe directly from the packet of Low Carb Icing Mix  and
  • Apple for the pumpkin stalk
  • Orange and green food colouring 


  • We separated ¼ of icing and added green dye, and added orange dye  to the remaining icing.
  • Using a spoon or knife, ice 12 cupcakes with orange icing.
  • Chop small chunks of apple to make the pumpkin stems.
  • Using a spoon to help, dip the apple into the green icing to coat. Add coated apple to tops of orange iced cupcakes using tweezers to hold it and push into the top of cupcake

HELPFUL TIP To fill your piping bag.  – Using a tall glass, place icing bag into glass and fold top of bag around rim of glass. This will keep your piping bag upright and allow you to have two hand to easily fill with icing and save on some mess.
