I’m always looking for ways to jazz up regular old box cake mix. The easiest way I’ve found is super simple and quick. I just add chocolate chips to the cupcakes mix before I bake them.
Next, when you ice the cupcakes, try not to bring the icing all the way to the end. You can also use cream cheese or vanilla icing and add food coloring.
If you’re not into cream cheese icing, check out my nom nom recipe for Peanut Butter frosting.
Use a ziplock bag as a piping bag. Just cut a small hole in the tip for writing or decorating.
