Easy Back To School Cupcakes are delicious. These cupcakes are so easy and fun. They start with a cake mix and topped with homemade buttercream frosting.
I can not believe my grandkids go back to school in a week. Where did summer go? Seems we haven't had nearly enough swim days at grammas. Summers are way too short here in Ohio. My 2 oldest grandsons are going to second grade. WOW! Seems they should still be wearing diapers. The twins are at home with their GiGi (their other grandma) for one more school year. They are anxious to go to kindergarten.
The grandkids love to come to grandmas in hopes of not only going in the pool and playing in the playroom but catching grandma baking.
Hopefully, they will be excited when they come over and see that I made them these Easy Back To School Cupcakes.
The cupcakes are so cute, they look like an apple for the teachers.
How To Make Easy Back To School Cupcakes:
Making these cupcakes are so easy. You will need a boxed cake mix of choice with the required ingredients (usually oil, eggs, water). I used Betty Crocker Super Moist Chocolate. Your favorite buttercream frosting, homemade or a tub from the grocery store. Food coloring, a tube of green icing for stems and I used chocolate frosting from a tub and shaped it as a stem.
