1 box of Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix (say what, aren't these red velvet? But trust me!)
1 pckg of Dream Whip (in the baking aisle)
1 cup of water
2 T of cocoa
2 T oil
2 1/2 T of red food coloring
1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Then, take the first four ingredients and combine them all together in the mixer. Beat for four minutes, or until mixed thoroughly.
Really, the yellow cake mix works perfectly!
2. While this mixes, mix the cocoa, oil, and red food coloring in a separate bowl. When the mixing of the cake batter is completely combined, add the red food coloring mixture.
Pretty colors, ooh!
3. Pour into cupcake trays, and bake for about 18-20 minutes. Once they are cool, ice away! Start with one crumb coat (aka a really thin layer of icing to prevent crumbs from getting in the icing). Then, add a thick second layer, and decorate!
After being baked...the dream whip makes them perfectly fluffy!
One crumb layer.
Two coats of delicious fluffy icing, and sprinkles!Pin It
