"Pumpkin is so moist and dense that it makes for very nice cupcakes," says pastry chef Tiffany MacIsaac. For her new pumpkin cupcakes this fall, she'll fill pumpkin cakes with chunks of toffee and top them with cream cheese frosting and candied pumpkin seeds for crunch. "It's so fun to get to watch people come into a cupcake spot," she says. "Everyone coming in is so excited to see the showcase." The shop's best-seller is The 9:30 (rich devil's food cake that's filled with vanilla buttercream and topped with thick chocolate frosting that's dipped in chocolate glaze, which MacIsaac describes as "a giant Hostess cupcake"). "It's so for people who love chocolate, and they're superhappy with it." buzzbakery.com
