Fun Party Cupcakes
These are a cinch to bake—and even more fun to decorate! Our Test Kitchen staff turned out a pair of not-so-scary aliens, but you can let the kids top their cakes any way they want.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
1 package cake mix of your choice (regular size)
1 can (16 ounces) vanilla frosting
Green gel food coloring
color of your choice, optional
Assorted candies of your choice: Pretzel sticks, Tic Tacs, Life Savers, red string licorice, Tart'n'Tinys, Chuckles, and Peanut M&M's
Prepare cake batter according to package directions. Fill greased or
paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.
Bake at 350° for 18-24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near
the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from
pans to wire racks to cool completely.
Tint the frosting with food coloring if desired. Frost the cupcakes
and decorate as desired. Yield: 2 dozen.
