Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

For my brother's 40th birthday party I wanted to make him a special birthday treat. We were planning a big party with lots to do, so although I wanted to use a homemade recipe we didn't have the time. So this semi-homemade recipe was perfect since it uses a basic white cake mix with a few add ins to make them even better. Since my brother loves snickerdoodles, I knew he would love them!

Although they say Snickerdoodle cupcakes I would say they taste a lot like cinnamon roll cupcakes. But either way, they are delicious! Also, the icing is delicious so you could always use that on a simple vanilla or chocolate cupcake.

Don't mind the Mickey decor, the party was Mickey themed! Blog post with full photos to come soon!
