Yankee Doodle Cupcakes Cream

Growing up on LI I loved Drakes Cakes. Yankee Doodles were near the top of my favorites. That wonderful cream!!!! Somewhere my friend, Laura, found the recipe for these cupcakes. Use with your favorite, boxed chocolate cake mix. This cream used to be difficult to make as I have no patience and my hands would get tired. Now that I have a mix-master it is no longer a problem. We would make these for kids birthdays and get so many compliments. My in-laws always wanted me to make ANY cake and use the cream frosting. If you are using a hand mixer, be prepared for sore hands.
