Tips

Happiness in a cup

Happiness in a cup

I have been baking cupcakes for various fundraising reasons at work. The most successful ones vary but each of them always brings smiles to their faces. I love to google cupcake images on the web for new ideas to decorate Duncan Hines boxed cake mixes. This makes baking easy, affordable, and fun. I now have started receiving custom requests for baby showers and birthday parties without even trying. Thank you Duncan Hines for your new flavored frosting products because they are amazing.
