A Sweet Treat: Mini Cupcakes

IMG_0808

Happy Friday Everyone!

Welcome! I am starting a baking series called Sweet Treats and it’s very fitting since Valentine’s Day is around the corner. This month all of the treats will be Valentine’s Day themed. Today I am going to show you how to create easy cupcakes that will require you to just mix all of the ingredients if you don’t have the time to make things from scratch.  You really don’t need worry about making things from scratch if you wish to create great tasting cupcakes. Just follow these tips:

One. If your box mix calls for water add milk instead it will add more flavor and give you a little bit of extra protein.

Two. Add a tsp. or tbsp. of vanilla extract. Make sure it’s good quality vanilla this will enhance the flavor of any box mix.

First off let’s go over what you will need:

-Mini Muffin Tin

-Boxed Cake mix

-Vanilla Extract

-Vegetable oil

-Eggs

-Milk

– Canned icing or homemade if you are feeling adventurous, try this recipe.

-Sprinkles (colors & shapes)

-toothpick banners (from Target)
