Recipe Notes

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.
