My daughter Brittney turned 22 and graduated from college on the same day. I had a huge party for her and of course I baked all the goodies. Since I was baking for 50 people and had to set up the party pick up the food and keep it all a surprise lol I decided to make the cupcakes semi homemade! These came out amazing and noone could tell they started from a box. This was one of the three flavors I made, Banana split! YUM You can purchase the icing and the icing flavoring at your local grocery store in the baking supply aisle. The specialty sprinkles were purchased at PARTY CITY.
