Frosting Instructions

While the pumpkin muffins are baking in the oven, mix the frosting ingredients.

Once the muffins are done baking, you have two options. You can allow them to cool to room temperature and then frost or add the frosting while warm. If you choose to add the frosting while the pumpkin muffins are warm, it will create a gooey topping.

If you allow the muffins to cool before adding the frosting, you can spread it around the top of the muffin for a more classic and firm texture.

The choice is yours—whether you crave the delightful contrast of warm, gooey frosting or prefer the timeless elegance of a smoothly spread topping.
