  • So where is the recipe for the icing?

    • SaltWorks

      We didn’t include a frosting recipe just to keep the recipe length down. Use your favorite cream cheese frosting recipe, or even use store-bought frosting to get to the fun part more quickly — eating the cupcakes!

  • Salted pumpkin sounds delicious!

  • My daughter is making these tonight for our halloween party. We can’t wait to try them… Sounds so yummy.
