Mom's Birthday Cupcakes

My mom's birthday was last week, and she just so happen to have plans to come by on Saturday to assemble the swing set she and my dad got Austin for Christmas. Seeing as it was a pleasant 60 degree January day, it worked out well. I made her some birthday cupcakes that I couldn't wait to share with you! 

Pineapple Cupcakes with Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting

Prep Time: 15 minutes 

Bake: According to cake mix box directions. 

Cool: 20 minutes 

Yield: 24 cupcakes



18.25 oz box yellow cake mix
20 oz can crushed pineapple in juice  (do not drain)
2 tablespoons Jell-o Cheesecake Pudding Mix

Preheat oven according to cake mix directions.

Combine ingredients in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat until well combined.

Filled lined cupcake tin, 2/3 full and bake according to cake mix directions, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Set aside to cool.


7 ounce jar marshmallow creme
16 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

In large bowl, beat ingredients until well combined. 

Spread on cooled cupcakes and refrigerate until ready to eat.
