Taste of Tuesday: Funfetti craze

Today's post is a twofer! Lucky you. If there's one thing I'm a fan of in this world, it's sweets. I am bad. Bad to the bone. Actually, on a serious note... I do diabetes testing every other year because diabetes does run in my family. Though I'm not diabetic personally, you can never be too safe! Especially with a sweet tooth like mine. Anyways, my point is that you're getting two recipes from me today. Both are sweet. Yum.
You can find the original recipe for the cake batter dip recipe here and the cupcake recipe here. What I loved most about both recipes was that there were so few ingredients. You can get the exact measurements of the ingredients in the original recipe link provided.

To make the cake batter dip...
1. Gather your supplies
2. Mix the whip cream, yogurt, and cake mix.
I suggest adding more whip cream and a little less yogurt. It was super thick and I preferred it more fluffy.
3. Grab a graham cracker and munch away.

To make the cupcakes...
1. Gather your supplies
2. Mix the soda & the cake mix.
The cake mix tasted exactly as if it had eggs and milk in it. So good!
3. Pour mix into cupcake liners.
I would suggest pouring much more than I did. The cupcakes didn't rise and ended up being super tiny.
4. Mix your whipped cream and vanilla pudding power together.
I highly suggest using more vanilla pudding power than was specified on the recipe. My frosting was very whip-creamy and I didn't really like it. I ended up preferring the cupcakes without frosting because of this.

5. Add frosting and nom away.
