How to Make Twinkie Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine cake mixes and add ingredients according to the package directions. Bake in cupcake pans with papers for 15 minutes @ 350º.
    When cool fill with French Vanilla Filling.



    French Vanilla Filling

    5 Tablespoons flour
    5 Tablespoons sugar
    1 cup milk
    ½ cup butter
    ½ cup shortening
    1 cup sugar
