Candy Bracelet Cupcakes

I think these cute little cupcakes may be one of my favorites so far.
So sweet for a little girl's birthday party.
I love the simplicity.



















Candy Bracelet Cupcakes

4 eggs
1/3 cup canola oil
1 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place cupcake liners into cupcake pan.
In a large mixing bowl combine cake mix, eggs, buttermilk and canola oil with an electric mixer.
Beat for 2 minutes; occasionally scraping the sides of the bowl.
Using a large cookie scoop, drop batter into liners.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Place cupcakes on a wire rack to cool.

While cupcakes are cooling, make your frosting.
