1 package plain white cake mix or yellow cake mix
3 large eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cupcake liners in pan (I always set out 24 regular sized, sometime I get 24 sometimes less. I have often found it depends on the cake mix). Mix together cake mix, milk, melted butter, eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl for three minutes. Scrape bowl half way through. Pour batter into muffin pans. Bake 15-20 minutes. Check at 15 minutes. Do not overbake. Allow the cakes to cool completely.
Now for the frosting! It is divine....
Snickerdoodle Frosting Recipe
1/2 cup softened salted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cinnamon
pinch of salt
3 3/4 cups powder sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
add milk 2 tablespoons at a time until you reach the consistency you desire
Mix butter until fluffy and slowly and in sugars and other ingredients. Blend for about a minute with electric mixer until fluffy. Place frosting in a pastry bag fitted with a large star pastry tip. Pipe frosting onto cupcakes. This time I made a mixture of regular and mini cupcakes. I ended up not having enough frosting and made another batch.
