Cheating On Cupcakes

I volunteered to make cupcake for my friend Lynn’s Halloween party tomorrow night. I was thinking something festive – pumpkin cupcakes with orange-colored cream cheese icing perhaps? I’d never made them from scratch before, so I figured this was the time to do it.

But after a long day Friday that left me wanting to do nothing more than run home and crawl into bed, I broke down. I cheated.

I marched down the baking aisle at Publix and picked up that Duncan Hines cake mix and icing. And with Ugly Betty on in the background, 24 cupcakes instantly appeared.

I didn’t even bother buying food coloring to turn the icing orange. Though I am going in search of orange and black sprinkles tomorrow to make them slightly more Halloween-ish.

Directions: Go to the baking aisle, shell out a few bucks and buy your cake mix and icing of choice. Then, follow the directions on the box. Remember to buy the paper that goes into the cupcake tin.
