These drool-worthy Sweet Potato Pie Cupcakes were lovingly crafted by the prolific food blogger Jessica from the wildly popular food blog How Sweet it is.

Thanksgiving may have come and gone, but the holiday season is just about to kick off. Although you may have had your fill of kitchen duty lately, these sumptuous cakes provide adequate inspiration, so there is absolutely no reason to feel gloomy while lacing up your apron strings.

A textured taste odyssey from head-to-toe, these Sweet Potato Pie Cupcakes start with a crisp graham cracker crumb base that serves as a delightful contrast to the velvety sweet potato spiked cake. The petite cakes are topped with an airy and wonderfully sticky Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting. The whole decadent affair is garnished with crushed pecans and a drizzle caramel sauce.

Silky, sweet and delightfully crisp, these Sweet Potato Pie Cupcakes transfers the magic of pie into a cup of cake.
