I mixed a Betty Crocker White cake mix, 3 egg whites, 1/3 cup oil, and 1-1/4 cups water. Dividing this between 5 small plastic cups was about the perfect amount of batter/cup ratio. I let the kids color their own, even though I REALLY wanted to do this myself. The kids had a great time, and the colors turned out nicer than I expected.
I use silicone cupcake forms because I'm always out of paper liners, but this worked out well to show of the colors of the cupcakes after they were frosted. Bake at 350 deg. for about 16-18 minutes, not too brown and not doughy.
I wanted a fluffy and extra creamy frosting, so this is my little concoction.
Easy Fluffy Vanilla Frosting:
3/4 cup Marshmallow Creme Fluff
6 Tbsp butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 can Classic Vanilla Frosting
- Mix the first 3 ingredients on high for about 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy.
- Add the whole can of frosting and continue to mix on med-high for 2 minutes.
