    JamesDean'sGirl's Note:

    From the Cake Mix Dr. to the bellies of my munchkin loving kids! You can use your favorite jellies in the filling...we've tried pear preserves with powdered sugar and cinnamon topping, cherry jam with chocolate icing, lemon curd, and left over 'creme' filling from whoopie pies.

      I have this book and these cupcakes are a masterpiece! I handed a bunch of them out to family and had them calling all night saying how good they were! I'm making these for my daughter's birthday instead of a cake!
