I’d promised to bring cupcakes to my twin niece and nephew’s upsherin/birthday celebration for the kids’ table.  8:30 PM the night before the 9 AM party, the little kids were finally asleep and it was time to make cupcakes. Um, no cake mix. Yeah, I confess. Cupcakes in this house come from a mix. I don’t even bother with a mixer.  Mix it with a fork in a bowl, pop it in the oven and done.  Not going to happen this time.  So, I turned to CookKosher to find something simple.  Hmmm white cupcake recipe from a user who makes custom cupcakes professionally.  That should do it!



A couple of hours, a tub of Duncan Hines frosting (thank goodness I did find that in my pantry!) and some food coloring later, VOILA! Cupcakes!! is currently running a fabulous recipe contest on their website.  Lots of great prizes pop up a couple of times a week with a couple of amazing grand prizes at the end.
