  • 1 Yellow Cake Box Mix
  • Ingredients listed on your Cake Box Mix eggs, oil
  • 2 tbsp Cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp Sugar

For Frosting

  • 1 3.5 oz Instant Vanilla Pudding mix
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 8 oz Cool Whip
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp Sugar


For the Cupcakes

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • Make the Cake mix according to the box directions.
  • Mix in the 2 tbsp Cinnamon and 2 tbsp Sugar into the cake mix.
  • Place cupcake liners in the cupcake pan.
  • Pour 1/3 cup of the cupcake mixture into each cupcake liner.
  • Cook according to the directions on the Cake Box and allow to cool completely before frosting.

For the Frosting

  • Pour the pudding mix in a medium sized bowl and add the milk and vanilla. Whisk (or beat) the ingredients together until they’re blended and the mixture begins to thicken.
  • Fold the Cool Whip, Cinnamon and Sugar into the pudding mixture. DO NOT over mix. You just want to fold it softly until it's combined.
  • Pipe onto the cupcakes using a piping bag or ziplock bag (with the corner cut off).
