“I looked for a cupcake recipe online becuase I only had 2 eggs and the cake mix I had called for 3 eggs. I thought that the end result was worth the few extra minutes it took to put everything together. I made these for St. Patrick's Day. I doubled the filling recipe and used it for both the filling and the frosting. I tinted the filling green and I added a smidge (1/4 teaspoon) of mint extract.”
