  • Drat! I guess then you don't want the cake recipe that ends with, "Call bakery. Lie down." :-D

    There are lots of recipe sites on the Internet (, for example) that may have cupcake recipes for you.

  • I usually buy a box of Duncan Hines and follow the recipe. Add frosting. Only one step above store bought, but in baking that's what I can do.

    If you have a favorite cake recipe you can bake the batter as cupcakes instead.

  • Use a box cake mix. Buy the frosting that comes in a can like hair mousse. It's really easy to use. Buy cute sprinkles like stars. It's really easy and they come out great. I make them all the time now.

  • I just use a cake mix and the decorate with icing and sprinkles. Plus cake mixs come in lots of flavors and few items to make them up.
