1 box of Yellow Cake Mix
1/2 a cup of Oil
1 cup of Water
Assortment of Sprinkles ( I used Pink, Purple, and Unicorn Sprinkles)
1 container of Purple Icing
1 container of Pink Icing
Start by mixing your cake mix, eggs, oil, and water in a large mixing bowl. Mix until smooth.
Line a cupcake pan with liners, and fill each liner 3/4 of the way full.
Bake according to box instructions.
Let cupcakes cool completely, now for the fun part.
Cut the center out of each cupcake, and place aside. I use a spoon and scoop out the middle, about half way down.
Press down on the hole lightly with your finger to clean it up.
Fill the center 3/4 of the way full with sprinkles of your choice.
Place the top back on and gently press it down.
Now when icing the cupcakes it is best to use an icing kit. Fill one side of your piping bag with purple icing, and one side with pink icing.
Ice your cupcakes as normal, whatever technique you choose.
Serve and enjoy!
