I thought these were super delicious!!! My older daughter didn't like them, but she doesn't like any cake/cupcakes/frosting, so that's not out of the norm. But the rest of us loved them. I served them with purple cream cheese frosting them decorated them with marshmallaw flowers as requested for my youger daughter's birthday treat for school! I will make these again! Can't wait to try the sour cream with Chocolate cake mix and raspberry preserves!!!
