I feel like every post lately has started with the phrase "So on Pinterest..." Frankly I eat, sleep, breathe this silly website. I have it on my phone and my kindle and lay in bed scouring new ideas and recipes. It's terribly addicting and I'm not quite sure what I did with my life before it. Now of course I will begin this post with:
So on Pinterest I saw this recipe for these super easy quick cupcakes for Valentine's day, so naturally I wanted to try it out. I don't normally used boxed mix or premade frosting but I seriously procrastinated this year and decided to make cupcakes when I woke up on Valentine's day morning....so quick it is!
I wasn't too convinced with this recipe, lemon-lime soda mixed with boxed cake mix....yeah right there's no way that's gonna turn out! Well it did. It gave the cupcakes a more sticky feel but super moist and lemme tell ya the batter was delicious (and egg free!) I did use premade frosting as well and piped it with a ziploc bag to somewhat seem fancy. They were a huge hit and got devoured at home and work.
The only problem I had was these need to be treated very much like angel food cake in the oven. I like to turn my pans halfway through baking/cooking times to evenly cook (our oven is old) and when I turned em I did bump them slightly and they all the sudden collapsed in the middle like an angel food cake would...they never recovered. So that was good to know for the future. I may used this recipe again and experiment with different flavors but probably only if I'm bored or in a bind. I enjoy cupcakes from scratch wayyyy too much!
Here's some lovely pics!
