Ingredients You Need

1 Box Cake/Cupcake Mix

Tin foil

Cupcake/Muffin Tin

Plastic Baggie

1 Can of Frosting



To begin, you’ll need a small, rectangular piece of tin foil that you’re going to be folding into small cylinders as shown in the top left hand corner of picture.

First, lay out your tin foil, and fold it in half horizontally.  Fold it in half horizontally a second time.

Next, prepare your cake mix to make cupcakes and place your batter in a clear plastic, sealable bag.

Snip off a small corner of the bag with your scissors until you have a small hole.

Open the container of frosting, scoop it out into a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave until it’s soft and slightly liquified.

Then dip the top of the cupcake donuts into the soft, slightly liquified frosting for a donut glazed look.
