It starts like this. Grab your basics. If you're looking for a pastel-y final product, you can use Cascadian Farms Fruitful O's. If you want something brighter and schmancier, you're gonna need some Trix. You'll also need a white cake mix. And eggs. And butter. And powdered sugar. And gel food coloring. But, that's, like, totally it!
Mix the cake mix according to package directions, then stir in some crushed cereal. Life doesn't get any easier than this!
Spoon your batter into cupcake liners. You can fill each muffin cup about 3/4 of the way full without worrying about the cupcakes rising over the edge of your tin.
While your cupcakes bake, prep your homemade frosting. Easy tips for making the colored frosting you see is right up there.
Frost. It looks complicated, but is surprisingly, wildly simple! Try it! This is one décor idea that's hard to botch!
And….just like that….you have cupcakes. We frosted our Fruitful O's cupcakes with purple and orange Betty Crocker neon frosting. The Trix cuppies got a four-color Neon treatment. So cute!
Grab a napkin and a glass of milk….you're gonna need it! And, of course, if you're feeling like you want to eat it cereal style, feel free to serve these little darlin's in a bowl!
