Water, vegetable oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box
container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla or creamy white frosting
Betty Crocker™ colored sprinkles
Birthday candles, if desired
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans).
Make, bake and cool cake mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes. Frost cupcakes with frosting.
Spray blades of kitchen scissors with cooking spray. Cut each marshmallow crosswise into 4 slices; sprinkle slices with colored sugar. Arrange 5 slices on each cupcake in flower shape. Place candle in center of each flower. Store loosely covered.
Use edible glitter in place of the colored sugar for extra sparkle.
Check out party-supply or cake-decorating stores for fun birthday candles.
If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
