Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

                                     The Snickerdoodle Cupcake

I got this recipe from  It was posted by Naillady and I must say they are delicious.

The recipe is fairly easy to make......

First start with a box of cake mix....the recipe called for white cake mix but I had a box of Butter Recipe Vanilla cake mix and used that instead.
Then add milk ......

and melted butter.......

3 eggs and some vanilla and cinnamon....

Mix the ingredients together for about 3 minutes and then put batter into lined cupcake pan....FYI the batter is thick (I thought I had forgotten to add something!)

I just got these muffin liners on Black Friday at WalMart....I love the design.

Bake the cupcakes for about 22-25 minutes on 350....22 minutes was just enough time for mine.
Your house will smell divine while these puppies bake!!
Let them cool...and then make the icing.


I tweaked the recipe just a tad and added a tsp of butter extract.....taste it first for yourself and decide if you want to add that but I thought it added just that little something that was needed.

You can also opt to sprinkle the top with cinnamon/sugar mixture.  I didn't do that but I'm sure it would be yummy....
I used the Wilton decorator tip #6B to pipe the icing onto the cupcake.

And now to taste it.......

YUMMY!  Look at all that cinnamony goodness!

Try some for yourself and share some with your friends and family.
