How to Bake Delicious Cupcakes for your Manager's Birthday!

So, your manager (or someone else in your designated place of employment) is having a birthday.  The office is bringing a potluck lunch.  What should you bring?  CUPCAKES!!!  Not only are these yummy treats a great portion control snack when you inevitably sneak one on your drive in, they are also super easy and fun!

Step 1: Gather all necessary ingredients.  Needed: Cake mix, 3 eggs, 1 cup water, 2/3 cup oil.  Store brands are acceptable.  As are regular brands.  I happen to have a small budget though.

Step 2: Mix all aforementioned ingredients until concoction is smooth.

Step 3: Prepare cupcake mix in cupcake pan.  Fill the paper cup half full for cupcakes that look like mine.  Fill the paper cup 2/3 full for bigger cupcakes.  I like to spray the inside of the paper liners for an easy removal.

Step 4: Bake soon to be delicious goodness in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.  Test 'doneness' by poking the center cupcake with a knife.  If the knife comes out smoothly (aka no batter on the knife) then the cupcakes are done.

Step 5: Let Cool.

Step 6. Add sugar.  I mean icing.  Which is made out of sugar.  Anyway, add LOTS of it.  Please note that the brand name icing may or may not have been on super sale.

Step 7: Decorate cupcakes with Happy Sprinkles! (as if anyone could eat a delicious cupcake and not be happy!)

Step 8: Bring yummy delicious cupcakes (that you taste tested first) to your office party!
