Preheat the oven to 170Â°C/325Â°F/Gas 3. Line a 12-hole nonstick muffin tray with paper muffin cases.
Beat the eggs in a bowl with the sugar for a couple of minutes, then add the oil and vanilla extract. Fold in the flour and cinnamon, followed by the nuts, sultanas and pumpkin.
Divide the mixture between the paper cases. Bake in the centre of the preheated oven for 20â€“25 minutes. Remove and turn the cakes out onto a wire rack to cool.
To make the icing, sift the icing sugar into a bowl. Mix in the soft butter, cream cheese and orange juice and rind. Add a couple of drops of orange colouring so as to give a bright pumpkin colour.
When the cakes are cool, put some icing into a piping bag and pipe onto each cake. Pipe from top to bottom on either side of the cake, using a star nozzle. Then pipe from top to bottom two or three times again to fill in the middle, I used bat sprinkles to create the eyes and mouth.
