Just go buy a cupcake baking pan, some of those paper cupcake cups, cooking spray, and cupcake mix.

Or just do what I do and buy pre-made cupcakes *lol*

Don't forget the frosting! That's the best part!

If you don't have a lot of baking supplies or kitchen appliances, then you'll probably come out cheaper just buying premade icing in a can. But you could get food coloring and ice them all different colors!

A cook book?

Usually baking aisles have great decorating things, like frosting, sprinkles, edible confetti, and things like that. Decorating is the best part!

*smacks forehead* Icing! The best part! Although I had cake at a baby shower the other day that didn't didn't need icing if it didn't have it, it was that good

Yeah, frosting in a can. Heck you could just eat that Actually I think Hood makes Confetti ice cream with cake pieces in it. Get that! But now I'm getting off the original food topic

I thought eating was the best part?

I would use www.allrecipes.com and look it up.

Probably sugar, flour, baking soda and/or powder, a little bit of salt, oil eggs and milk or water.

If you want chocolate cupcakes, buy chocolate too.

Or you can go the cheap and easy route and buy cake mix.

I would just go the easy cake mix route too!

I have actually seen cupcake mix kits, it comes with the little paper cups and icing and little edible paper stickies to put on top!

If you have the time, cakes taste much better when you make them from scratch, using flour, eggs etc. And it is not difficult. You can find lots of easy recipes online - just google 'cake recipe'.
post #24 of 25
yup, cupcake mixes are just normal cake mixes but blobbed into cup cake tins
post #25 of 25
Cake mix all the way, hon!!!

Frosting, cupcake liners, and a muffin tin.

Voila! With some water, an egg, and some oil, you shall have your cupcakes!
