  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbs vanilla
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 batch of The Best Chocolate Frosting
  • Sprinkles optional
  • 1M piping tip and piping bag optional


To make the yellow cupcakes:

  • Preheat oven to 325 and line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
  • Mix together thoroughly the oil, vanilla, heavy cream, sour cream, eggs. (½ cup vegetable oil, 2 tbs vanilla, ¾ cup heavy cream, ¾ cup sour cream, 3 eggs)
  • Mix in the cake mix (1 box yellow cake mix)
  • Put approximately ⅓ cup of batter into each cupcake liner.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until they start to get golden brown on top and a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

To make the best chocolate frosting:

Filling and frosting the cupcakes:

  • Using a melon baller, a small spoon or a potato peeler (like I did!) cut out a circle from the top of each cupcake.
  • Scoop out some of the middle and then pack as many sprinkles as you can into the center. They can hold more than you think!
  • Using a 1M pipping tip, fill your piping bag with chocolate frosting. Squeeze the piping bag while going in a slow circular motion, starting from the center of the cupcake and spiraling out and layering upward. This will also cover the hole you made to put the sprinkles inside.
  • Enjoy!
