    1. Prepare your favourite cupcake recipe, or start with shop-bought cupcakes. Any flavour will work!
    2. Prepare the icing as directed in your recipe, or use shop-bought icing. You'll need about 300g of icing. To the plain icing, add some orange food colouring, starting with just a few drops and adding more until your desired hue is reached.
    3. Spread the icing over each of the cooled cupcakes.
    4. Place the orange sugar in a bowl and invert the cupcakes into the bowl, coating the tops in sugar.
    5. Using the back of a knife, press five lines into the top of each cupcake, originating from the centre, to resemble a pumpkin. Stick a pretzel stick or piece of a regular pretzel in the centre for the pumpkin stem.
