Those aren't your ordinary cupcakes. They are Boston Cream Cupcakes. Mmmmmm.... too bad they're all gone. I want one right now....
Ok. You'll find them pinned here.
The only thing I changed from the recipe thought up over on My Ocean of Notions was that I used yellow cake mix instead of white. I use yellow for the actual boston cream pies I make, so I thought why not for this too?
So. In summation, if you're cold try the stew. It'll warm you up. I'll let you know how that other stew is as soon as we make it. Next, make the apples if you want some fun, but definitely use some kind of crazy awesome cookie cutter with a handle or something or you'll want to throw in the towel. Or slice your apples paper thin. And finally, definitely make the Boston Cream Cupcakes. They are easy and tasty. You can't beat that.
And, yes, I will be posting something Christmas-y tomorrow. Glad you asked.
