Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Made these for a party this weekend - I love Fall! Recipe at Real Simple magazine HERE. They were SO easy to make and the frosting was delicious!

I've been having problems with my oven while baking lately - seems like all my cupcakes are getting a little too done on the bottoms. My shelf isn't too low, and my heat isn't too high. Not sure what the situation is? I've heard that different kinds of cupcake liners play a role in this?

Any words of wisdom, fellow bloggers and bakers?

Love this recipe, I posted it on my blog earlier this month, it is so easy! Not sure about the oven issues though. Mmmm, now I want pumpkin cupcakes!!

Those look DELICIOUS!

As for your problem: I have dealt with that before, and discovered that if the recipe calls for, say, 14-16 mins, I set the timer for 13 mins (one minute less than the MINIMUM cooking time) and turn the oven off, but leave the muffins/cupcakes in there. The oven will be hot enough to finish baking them, but they won't get too dark on the bottom. :)

I dunno know what could be going on with that. Maybe the heat is too high??? These look sooo good!
