In the Kitchen ~ Fruit Punch Cupcakes ~ 7/9/15


Here's one from the archives for today...


Fruit Punch Cupcakes

1Yellow or White Cake Mix
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil
3 eggs
1 tub Fruit Punch Drink Mix (1 tub makes 2 qts of drink)

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Put cake mix and Fruit Punch powder in mixing bowl and mix.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well for 2 minutes.

Line muffin tins with papers and fill 2/3 full with cake mixture.

Bake for 18-22 minutes.

Cool completely.


Fruit Punch Icing

1/2 cup Crisco
2 Tablespoons butter
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar
1/2 tub Fruit Punch Drink Mix (don't use whole tub unless you want some major PUNCH!)

Combine the first 4 ingredient in a mixing bowl and mix well. Add powdered sugar a bit at a time until you get a nice fluffy consistency. Add Fruit Punch Drink Mix and mix well.  Add more milk if needed. Beat on high until light and fluffy.

Put icing into a ziplock bag to pipe the icing on the cupcakes. Start with a dollop in the center and then start on the outside edge and work toward the middile and up over the center. This gives it some height.
