"These are incredible! We put some chocolate frosting on some of them, but they were great without. I did put them in the fridge and my family enjoyed them cold as well."

"So easy! Great for a hot day when you don't want to fuss with frosting. Used lemon cake mix. YUM! If you don't want the bottom to stick to the paper, use foil cups instead!"
