Holidays are a reason for me to indulge in my sweet tooth. I am not a good baker because I don't have the patience to measure, therefor its hit or miss if my goods turn out. What I can do is improvise variations into already prepackaged baking mixes like I did here with these delicious cupcakes. I used cinnamon & sugar, a delicious staple in Mexican baking, along with caramel & ice cream. A very simple Cinco de Mayo inspired twist on your otherwise vanilla cupcake and a perfect last minute dessert for your dinner party or any occasion.
prepackaged box cake mix (plus ingredients listed)
1/4 cup sugar
2 TSP cinnamon
vanilla ice cream
Mix cake mix according to package.
Pour into cupcake liners. Bake according to package directions.
Remove and let cool. With a knife, cut cone like shape out of cupcake. This is where the ice cream will sit. Set cupcakes aside until you are ready to serve for dessert.
Mix cinnamon & sugar together and sprinkle generously on cupcake. Then add a scoop of ice cream, sprinkle a little more cinnamon & sugar.
Lastly, drizzle with caramel.
