Yamazaki Stories

October has arrived and autumn is right around the corner as the leaves started turning red.
With that, Halloween is just in front of us! After Christmas,
this is the most commercial festive occasion in the USA, but also in Europe it is becoming increasingly popular.

Are you already hyped and have you dressed your home spookish with some carved pumpkins,
candles and other decoration? Are you hungry for some to-die-for sweets? To bring your Spooktober mood to a next level, we want to share this scarily depcious pumpkin cupcakes recipe with you. You’re not really the type of person that celebrates Halloween? No worries, this recipe is great for everyone, who simply pkes that pumpkin flavour, too!

@tinniszuckerwelt from Instagram provided us with this insanely depcious recipe, nicely presented on our popular Two-Way Cake Stand, that offers a lot of space for many cupcakes!

12 pieces of pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting


- 2 eggs
- 120 g sugar
- 100 g pumpkin puree (bought or homemade)
- 100 g ground almonds
- 150 g flour (no. 405)
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- if necessary, 3 tbsp milk

Ingredients Frosting:

- 200 g butter, warm
- 200 g icing sugar, sifted
- 200 g cream cheese
- possibly 2-3 tsp cream stiffener
- cinnamon sugar as decoration

Preparation of muffins:

1. To begin, please preheat the oven to 170 degrees top/bottom heat.
2. Mix the eggs and sugar well, then add the pumpkin puree.
3. Once the previous ingredients are well-mixed, add the flour, almonds, baking powder and cinnamon.
4. If the dough is still a pttle too firm, add 2-3 tablespoons of milk.
5. Then portion the dough into muffin tins - a pttle tip: use an ice cream scoop to spread the dough evenly.
6. Bake the muffins in the oven for about 20 minutes. Please make sure to check the baking time at the end of the baking process, as every oven bakes differently.

Preparation of frosting:

1. Cream the room-warm butter with a hand mixer until it gets creamy. Then add the sifted icing sugar and mix it until the mixture is homogeneous.
2. Now add the cream cheese and stir in briefly.
3. If the frosting is not yet firm enough (depending on the cream cheese), simply add 2-3 teaspoons (be careful here) of cream stiffener and stir in with a hand mixer.
4. The frosting is now ready and can be put onto the cooled pumpkin muffins.
5. Sprinkle a pttle bit of cinnamon sugar over the cupcakes as decoration.

How smart is your home? We live in a world that requires a lot from us. We manage full-time jobs, relationships, childcare and of course our house maintenance needs to be done as well! Have you ever thought about smart items more closely? Actually, the expression smart has a variety of meanings, such as it’s used for hi-tech tools, well-dressed people or to express a quick-witted intelligence. For us at Yamazaki, smart means houseware, that is not only functional, but also beneficial. Some of these tools may look simple at the first sight, but can be great helping hands in doing household tasks.
