Preheat oven to 350 F and line 12 standard muffin tins with paper liners.
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt).
In a separate bowl, combine pumpkin puree, white sugar, brown sugar, oil and eggs. A whisk works best for this step.
Pour the wet pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Scoop into muffins tins to about 2/3 full. Bake in preheated oven for about 15-17 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely before frosting.
Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
Using an electric mixer combine butter and cream cheese. Beat until light and fluffy.
Gradually add icing sugar until combined. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Beat on medium to high speed until frosting is creamy, light and fluffy. This would be a good time to taste test and see if you want to add more cinnamon. If so, add desired amount and mix until fully incorporated.
Use a knife or offset spatula to spread frosting on cooled cupcakes. Or use a piping bag and tip for fancier presentation.
