In other words, so doable for a day that needs to be kicked up a sweet notch.

This recipe is simplified with the use of cake mix, which is actually really fun to have on hand. I keep yellow cake mix in a jar for all those “cake batter” recipes floating around the blog/Pinterest world.

Some recipes that have caught my eye recently:
Cake Batter Truffles

I just realized that I missed the opportunity of super festive sprinkles for my cupcakes! They add so little flavor but the happy/cute/squeal factor is undeniable.

At least I remembered the chocolate. A nice dollop of leftover chocolate cream cheese from my Chocolate Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries.

Yum. This cupcake totally satisfied my cupcake craving, and I loved the slight tang from the yogurt. Easy prep, minimal clean-up, and convenient single serving — give it a try and make your day a little sweeter!
