Sunflower Cupcakes with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups


Today is Twice and Nice Tuesday so I'm sharing one of my older posts.

In July 2012 I wrote: 
I mentioned yesterday that my son has taken over my menu planning this week since it's his birthday week.  He asked for special cupcakes so I came up with these fun Sunflower Cupcakes.  They are made with a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and some beautiful yellow frosting for the petals.  Now I'm not a big time baker or cake decorator... but I was thrilled with these cute cupcakes.  Sunflowers are my favorite flower and these Sunflower Cupcakes are for my favorite little boy in the world!

1 box yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup oil
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Yellow colored frosting (homemade or store bought)

Prepare cake box mix with all ingredients listed above except for Reese's cups and frosting.  Then fill the cupcake pan with liners and the liners with batter 3/4 way full.  Place a unwrapped Reeses's (the big flat kind like a disk) in the middle of each unbaked cupcake.    Bake for 19-23 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow cupcakes to cool completely before frosting with yellow frosting.

Tip:  I used a piping bag to frosting around the cupcake then took a spoon to lift up the petals.
