The name and the idea of these cupcakes have once again originated with Rebecca. She has such a creative mind...and I am not sure if it is because she is a college student with no boundries or just because. Anyhow she gave them the name simply because they are so magical. I upgraded the recipe just a bit as she used a cake mix and a canned frosting.

You can actually change the recipe to other cookie flavors and you can use a cake mix or canned frosting. It can be simple or exquisite, your treat you ideas. These will satify the cake or cookie lover in your life.
