Cuppie Cakes!

For Valentine's Day, I decided to make some delicious cuppie cakes for my co-workers.

Sidenote: I used to bake alllll the time during my single days, cuppie cakes and other yummy recipes from scratch, straight from my Magnolia Bakery cookbook. I vow to resume my baking habits just as soon as I have a suitable kitchen (enough counter space) to use my stand-up Kitchen Aid mixer on a regular basis.

Until that happens, I decided to go with a semi-homemade approach for this recipe.

 "Neopolitan" Cupcakes

1 box cake mix (you can use any kind you want, I used Funfetti)
3 egg whites
1 1/4 c water
1/3 c canola oil
1 box brownie mix (I used Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownies)
2 eggs
1/4 c water
3/4 cup canola oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

 In a mixing bowl, whisk together cake mix, eggs, oil, and water; following the recipe on the box. In a seperate bow, whisk together the brownie mix, eggs, oil, and water; following the recipe on the box. Spoon the brownie batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each cup 1/3 full. Spoon the cake batter over the brownie batter, until muffin cups are each 2/3 full.

Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 20 minutes.

 I loved that I found Valentine's Day themed Funfetti cake mix, but you can use any kind of cake mix or just use the white mix like the recipe states. I also went with the Valentine's Day themed Funfetti frosting, which I thought added a cute touch.

What mind looked like:

 YUM! They were awesome and soo easy to make!

Also, has anyone else ever seen these Ryan Gosling photos? They crack me up!


Hope everyone is having a great week!
