Ah, Wednesday. Halfway through the week – Wednesday feels good, doesn’t it?! I’d like to thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes! You sure know how to make a girl feel loved 🙂

I have to admit though, with everything going on for my birthday, I neglected to notice that it was my dear friend’s one year wedding anniversary. Such a great milestone to celebrate! And you know that no one loves a celebration as much as I do, it’s the perfect excuse for eating tons of cake (or cupcakes in my preference!)

So today, I dedicate this post to my close friend Nikki. You are inspiring, determined, and oh-so creative. Thanks for being my friend and happy ONE YEAR Anniversary! So happy for you and your hubby!

Let’s celebrate with a recipe for traditional white cake and some great cupcake decorating ideas!!

Today I have a special recipe for all of you busy moms who still want to bake delicious cupcakes but don’t have the time to make them 100% from scratch. This recipe is easy, delicious, and still has that homemade taste!

Orange Vanilla Cream Cupcakes

What you’ll need:

  • 1 box of Duncan Hines White Cake Mix
  • 3 Egg Whites
  • 1/3 Cup of Veg Oil
  • 1 cup of water
  • ¼ cup of orange soda
  • ¼ cup of Orange Jello Mix (dry)
  • 1 box of   Instant Vanilla Pudding

Directions:

  1. Ignore the directions on the box 🙂
  2. Combine Cake mix with Egg Whites, Veg Oil, Water and Orange Soda
  3. Mix Well
  4. Add ¼ cup of Dry orange jello powder
  5. Mix well for 2 minutes
  6. In a separate bowl, make your instant pudding mix (just follow the directions on the box – all you will need is Milk)
  7. Fill your cupcake liners a little over halfway with batter
  8. Place 1 TBS of Vanilla Pudding in each cupcake liner (The pudding will bake into the center of the cupcake and create a delicious filling!! Just don’t use more than 1 TBS)
  9. Bake at 350 for 18 -20 minutes.
  10. Let cool before you frost

I like to finish these off with my traditional buttercream and some white chocolate chips. Yum!
