Cake Mix Dessert Recipes
I love easy dessert recipes. One way to make an easy dessert recipe is by using cake mix. Cake mix dessert recipes really are the easiest way to make a yummy dessert.
One easy dessert recipes you can make is cupcakes. To make an easy cupcake, cake mix is also needed. Some of the best fun cupcake recipes use cake mix.
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 moist cake is, wait for it, yogurt and pudding, yep I learned that there.
Using that yogurt secret, I incorporate it into cake mix. To have the best cupcake recipe, all you need to do is doctor up some cake mix. Once you do that you see how easy cupcake recipes can be.
Making M&M Cupcakes
Recently someone asked me about an old cupcake recipe on here, the red wine cupcake. When I went to look it up on here to see what they were referring to I realized wow that photo on it is horrible!
I love that decadent chocolate cupcake so that post needs TLC. So I baked up a batch of chocolate cupcakes. Then I realized I had a lot of chocolate cupcakes.
M&M Cupcakes Recipe
So what to do? Can’t take red wine cupcakes to work since the drizzle is alcohol on them. So the idea of decorating the chocolate cupcakes into different cupcakes was genius.
Fun Cupcake Recipes
All I had to do was make 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 part the fun in these m&m cupcakes.
I got inspired by Disney for this m&m cupcake creation. 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 of the m&m 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 this bakery in a way. Sadly, like red wine cupcake, 2 of the 3 cupcake recipes have very bad photos and need TLC.
