  • 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.
