I'm going to bring cupcakes to a girls night this week. I have a great buttercream frosting that I love....but not sure what to make for cupcakes. Do any of you have suggestions for doctoring up a cake mix so that I don't have to bake from scratch? The event is on Thursday, so I need a sure thing!! I"m leaning towards a chocolate cupcake with vanilla butter cream. Thanks!

Add a box of instant chocolate pudding or cheesecake pudding to your cake like a charm :)

Start with a white cake mix, and add sour cream and almond flavoring to make a quick, moist cake that's ready for your decorating touches.

Delicious, light and fluffy! These taste of Fall, and the crystallized ginger gives then a lovely little zing. Even people who don't like pumpkin love these cupcakes. These disappear as fast as I can set them out!

Would you consider these? They go over best with women, I think. Maybe my guys are different.

This cake is make without milk or eggs and is moist, dark and delicious. A brain child of the depression era when ingenious cooks developed a cake that could be made without expensive and scarce ingredients.

This is our favorite cake, and as easy as any mix. Just make cupcakes out of it. It's super moist. I often healthify it by using half applesauce for the some of the oil.
