Mary Anneliese’s Birthday Party Cupcakes

Mary Anneliese decided she wanted to make the cupcakes for Patterson’s birthday party this year. I thought it was a sweet offer that I didn’t want to refuse. I took her to the grocery to choose her ingredients, and she did most of the work herself. I only intervened for putting them into the oven and taking them out. She did a great job, and they were a big hit at the party.

Mary Anneliese’s Birthday Party Cupcakes

1 cup oil
1/2 cup water
1 small box french vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 pkg. strawberry cake mix
8 oz. sour cream
1 can Funfetti frosting
Cupcake papers

Mix all ingredients until well blended. (Well, you know, not the frosting or the cupcake papers.) Line a muffin tin with cupcake papers, and fill 2/3 full with batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-ish minutes. (Don’t you hate recipes that aren’t more precise than that? What can I say? I’m a very imprecise cook. Maybe that’s one of my problems.) When completely cooled, frost with Funfetti icing. We added extra pink sprinkles because… well… we like pink stuff.

Some of our most fun memories involve cooking together. Mary Anneliese is beginning to enjoy looking through cookbooks to find interesting recipes. I think she might have a little of her mama in her!
