Moist Cake

I  really love to bake. For a while, I was heavy into cake making. Used to love learning these techniques from a website called Cake Central. That was how I learned some secrets to some pretty good baked goods like cupcakes.  The best secret to a moist cake is, wait for it, yogurt and pudding, yep I learned that there.

Using that yogurt secret, I incorporate it into the cake mix. To have the best cupcake recipe, all you need to do is doctor up some cake mix. Once you do that you can make a simple cupcake recipe.

You can make one batch of cupcakes and use different fillings and icings to create different fun cupcake recipes. On this m&m cupcakes recipe, of course, decorate it with some mini M&M’s. After all who would not want one of these M&M cupcakes?

Because these m&m cupcakes is chocolate on top of chocolate, the M&M’s make it pop with bursts of color. That is what makes these fun cupcakes

Disney Cupcakes

I got inspired by Disney for this m&m recipe. They have a bakery in Walt Disney World Resorts that makes these amazing over the top cupcake goodies. I just downsized these fun cupcakes from Disney’s very large Cupcake version to this simple cupcake recipe.

This is not first Disney inspired cupcake I made. I have done 3 easy cupcakes recipes on Seduction in the Kitchen that was inspired by the Disney bakery:

Since I do write The Recipes Of Disney as well, I may be insipred by Disney for more easy cupcake recipes! I am at Disney a lot since I moved to Florida!

      I’m making these according to your instructions and my batter is very very dry. Am I supposed to make the cake mix as per box directions then add in what you have instructed?
      Box indicates milk/water 1 & 1/4 cup, 1/2 cup oil, and 3 eggs

      Help!

        It should not be dry, sounds like your using a brand I have not used before going by those ingredient amounts you listed. SO what I would do is add what the box says, reduce the egg to 2 add the yogurt and pudding, heavy cream as I indicted.
