happy little donut cupcakes!

these cupcakes are way too cute and sooooo good! this idea cam from animated cupcakes. i made these for a birthday breakfast and they made everyone smile. 

cupcake recipe:

1 box cake mix
1 cup sour cream
3 eggs
½ oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract     

mix up all the ingredients and bake according to the directions on the box. allow cupcakes to cool completely.

make a hole in the middle of each cupcake (I used the bottom of a frosting tip but i think you can make a hole with a small spoon too)

cupcake glaze recipe:

from  recipezaar 

½ cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 ½ teaspoons of vanilla
4-6 tablespoons of hot water          

1. heat butter in saucepan until melted
2. remove from heat
3. stir in powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth
4. add hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until it reaches the consistency you want
    (i actually used 7 tablespoons of water because i wanted the glaze to be thin)

dip cupcakes into the glaze 

and immediately decorate with sprinkles!

wrap them up and give them to someone to eat!
