On Super Bowl Sunday my husband asked me to make cupcakes for him to take to the Super Bowl party at our church. So, I did. I did not have much time though, so I used a boxed cake mix (I know, how terrible) and doctored it up a bit.

I made 24 cupcake, vanilla with chocolate icing. I used a piping bag to make the icing look pretty. My husband asked me if they were homemade. Keep in mind, I will NOT lie! I thought about it for a few seconds and answered him... "I made them myself." That was the truth! Right? I did not purchase them, I made them...with love :-)

My guess is everyone liked them. I told my husband to take one as soon as he put the tray down or he may not get one at all. He said he did what I suggested and when he went back a few minutes later, they were all gone! Yey!

Lesson learned: Sometimes people just want something sweet...even if it is not made from scratch.

Why is using a mix terrible? Most of us are busy people and the fact is that we still want to cook and create wonderful things. I think those looked great plus you were very nice to make them for him... I would have told the White or Milk Chocolate Acolytes to make their own cupcakes for an event I wasn't going to. LOL

Nice job Deanna! I loooove chocolate frosting, and box cake mix tastes good to me so I have no problem.

Have a nice weekend.
