  4. Bake for 18 minutes. Pull out and check with a toothpick or fork (if comes out clean they are done, if not bake for just 2 more minutes and check again).
  5. Let cupcakes cool at least 5 minutes. Put them on paper towels to be iced.
  6. Bake the rest of the cupcakes repeating steps 3-5.
  7. Add about 3 full sprinkles of cinnamon per can of cream cheese icing. To ice cupcakes you can use knife of pastry bag your choice.
