Butter Pecan Cupcakes

By on November 24th, 2012 . Filed under: Cupcake Ideas .

I decided to give Betty Crocker’s butter pecan cake mix a whirl, and my ┬átaste testers (who of course, assume everything is from scratch — *wink*) were thrilled.

I also made a butter pecan frosting. I beat together: 2 sticks of softened butter, 3 tablespoons of vegetable shortening, about 6 cups of powdered sugar. Then, I topped the cupcakes with drizzled caramel and crushed pecans.

These cupcakes were sooo rich and buttery! Highly recommended for butter enthusiasts!

    Yum!! I saw the mix at the store and I was curious, but didn’t take it home. Glad to hear it’s a winner!
