Happy Valentine's Day! I baked some cupcakes for the occasion. I looked up a bunch of interesting heart-themed recipes on Martha Stewart's website but they were a little too ambitious for me and would have required a trip to the store. I already had cake mix and frosting just waiting to be used. I would have liked to make something heart-shaped and/or pink, but these cupcakes were delicious anyway, so it doesn't really matter.
Do you want to make these? Here's your recipe...
*1 box of cake mix (I used Betty Crocker's SuperMoist Yellow Cake Mix) - You'll also need butter, water, and eggs. The mix I used required one stick of butter and three eggs.
*1 container of frosting (I used Pillsbury chocolate frosting with funfetti)
*Cupcake pan and baking cups
Follow the instructions on the cake mix box, let cool, add frosting. That's it! It's embarrassingly easy, but they taste great :)
