Ducan Hines Smarties Cupcakes

These are the favorite Cupcakes of my kids. They love to see the color of the smarties melting into the cupcakes :) Sometime, they choose the color of the smarties for an occasion, like Easter, or Valentine day, or Mother day or Christmas. It's always a pleasure to cook Duncan Hines recipe and imagine with the kids new recipes to do :) Good time in family to past
