Makes: 24 cupcakes Total Time: 1 hr
Category: Desserts Sub Category: Cakes

what you need
  • 1 box (18 oz.) cake mix (fun colors or flavors recommended)
  • Cupcake paper baking cups
  • 2 cans (16 oz. each) frosting (different flavors or colors recommended)
make it
1. Prepare cake mix according to the instructions on the box.
2. Let the cupcakes cool for 20-25 minutes.
3. Using a butter knife, cut a small circle in the top of the cupcake (about the size of a quarter and about 1 inch in thickness) KEEP THE CIRCLE YOU CUT OUT
4. Fill in with frosting where you cut out a hole, fill until you have filled to the top of the hole (use one color/flavor to fill in the hole)
5. Frost the top of the cupcake all over as you would a cake (use a different flavor/color to frost the top)
6. Take the circle that you cut out and cut it in half, so now you have 2 semi-circles.
7. Put the 2 halves on top of the cupcake where you cut out the hole, but position them at an angle so they stand up like butterfly wings.
8. Enjoy!!!
It is better to use two different flavor frostings. It is always a nice surprise to find a different flavor frosting in the center of the cupcake.
