Doctored Cake Mix

So, I’m in a hectic, crazy moving week and my two daughters are having a farewell party at their school where I have to take some cupcakes for all of their classmates, so instead of making time consuming, from-scratch cupcakes, I use my to-go, emergency, fail proof, Doctored Cake Mix.

It’s a super simple, foolproof recipe, and you just need to mix all ingredients together and bake! no need to cream butter and sugar, sift or incorporate ingredients. I used this basic Vanilla Buttercream to frost.

I’ve used different cake mixes with different ingredients and Betty Crocker Super Moist yellow Cake Mix is the one that has worked better for my Doctored Cake Mix so far; this post is not sponsored in any way! just a personal preference.
