The best part about making these cupcakes is that they’re delicious – and you get to use a cake mix! Cake mix cupcakes make it super simple to whip up a batch of cupcakes in a simple and fast way.

This means that you can also change up the flavor of the cupcakes easily just by changing up the flavor of the cake mix. While I tend to use vanilla or yellow cake mix, you can easily use strawberry, chocolate, and any other types.

Just know that if you use a darker cake mix, the sprinkles aren’t going to pop as much in the batter or when they’re baked.

Recommended Dessert Recipe Books

Do you love recipe books? Me, too! I’ve found that using recipe books is a great way to have inspiration at my fingertips anytime I want it.

There are a lot of different types of recipe books out there, too, so it can be super hard to narrow it down to the ones that you might want. I love finding recipes off the internet and making them, but I also recommend having a fun cookbook at home, too.

We use them together as a family to cook together, and it’s a great way to bond over the pages and to help teach the kids how to cook or bake.

What is the best way to freeze cupcakes?

Since this recipe makes 24 cupcakes, you might want to freeze some to save them for later. Make sure to let the cupcakes cool down all the way, and then add them to a freezer-safe bag or container.

I also recommend that you don’t freeze cupcakes with frosting on them. You can unthaw the cupcakes later and then add the fresh frosting on top.
