    Great Cupcakes! Easy to Make! I made them for my son's class. See my posted photo #3. I used Devil's food cake mix. The choc. pudding mix does add so much to the cake. I made 1 extra cupcake for my husband and I to taste and we so wanted more and couldn't get over how great they looked. Those who complained they don't look like eyeballs please see my pic # 3. Place them together in the tray and they definitely look like eyeballs. I thought so even without putting them together. Going to make a 2nd batch for my son's Tae Kwon Do Halloween party. I bought a larger red cookie frosting and it worked well. Does take a little time to decorate but so satisfying with the outcome. First time I did anything like this and I'm so giddy. Thanks Kraft for an Easy Great Recipe.

    Sorry, but the thought of eating an "eyeball" (even if it is cake) is disgusting! In my opinion, this is not cute.
