Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cupcakes

While I was visiting New Jersey a few weekends back to meet my new nephew, my mom gave me an early Christmas gift.

Isn’t it beautiful?

Thanks mom!

I came across this pin from Your Cup of Cake for Cinnamon Toast Cupcakes. Cinnamon Toast Crunch is my favorite cereal so I just HAD to try them out. Also, I just really wanted to try this mixer out!

From Your Cup of Cake
Mix eggs, oil, buttermilk and vanilla in a large bowl.

Crush up the Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Add sour cream, cake mix, and cinnamon to the egg mixture and mix until smooth. Stir in the crushed cereal.

Fill cupcake liners ¾ full.

Bake for 15-18 minutes.

While the cupcakes are baking, make the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Buttercream. And frost once cooled.

The Verdict: To be honest (and when am I not?), they weren’t that great. The cupcake itself was blah at best. And when you bit into the Cinnamon Toast Crunch pieces, they tasted soggy. The frosting was awful. It wasn’t buttercream at all. It was more of a cream cheese frosting but not a good one. I ended up tossing most of them.

Things to Note/Consider: Stick to Funfetti cupcakes. Or if you really want to give these cupcakes a go, try a different frosting.
