My cute son is obsessed with baseball (he calls it “Space Ball”). He actually turns 3 next week and my mom and dad are giving him his own baseball glove and ball. I seriously can’t wait to see the look on his face when he opens it! I have been throwing around the idea of having a baseball-themed birthday party for him and as soon as I saw this cute Home Run Cupcake Kit from The Shopping Bag, I knew that I had to do it.
Perfect Cake Mix Cupcakes
1 box cake mix (any flavor will work)
3 large eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted (not margarine)
1 cup water
Melt the butter in the microwave. Add cake mix (do not add the ingredients as called for on the box!), eggs, and water to the butter in a large bowl. Mix on low for one minute, then on high for one minute. The batter will be thick and creamy (instead of runny). Scoop batter into cupcake papers (I used an ice cream scoop- you want them to be about 2/3 full). Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool and then frost.
