Magical Birthday Cupcakes
- 1 box yellow Betty Crocker cake mix with pudding
- Water extra virgin olive oil, and eggs for cake mix (see box)
- 1 container Betty Crocker vanilla creamy ready-to-spread frosting
- 1-1/2 to 2 cups Lucky Charms® cereal
- Green edible glitter or sprinkles
Heat oven to 350 F (325 F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cups in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes*, using water, extra virgin olive oil and eggs. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove from Pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
Frost cupcakes with frosting. Sprinkle with glitter or sprinkles. Top each cupcake with 1 tablespoon of cereal.
Store cupcakes loosely covered
To get 24 cupcakes, fill each muffin cup with approximately 3 tablespoons of cake mix.
*If you only have one pan, cover and refrigerate the batter while baking the first batch. Cool your pan for about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
