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.

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!
