Valentine's Day Cupcakes

Sometimes I don't feel like making things from scratch. Mostly this was an impromptu bake-fest, as our upstairs neighbor was laid off and cupcakes make everybody feel better. Especially Valentine's Day ones.

Valentine's Day Cupcakes
1 box of Devil's Food cake mix
1 1/3 cups of water
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 container of whipped white frosting
1 bag of sugar cookie mix, plus the ingredients according to the package
Sprinkles, preferably red, pink, etc...

Make the sugar cookies according to the package directions, using a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Allow them to cool and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350'. Combine the water, vegetable oil, eggs and cake mix, beating until all of the ingredients are combined. Pour into lined cupcake tins and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Allow them to cool.

Top each cupcake with the whipped white frosting, sprinkles, and a heart-shaped sugar cookie.
