March Madness

I'm not referring to basketball. In our house, March is the month that the birthday bomb explodes.
Skylar was born on March 3. Calli's birthday is March 20. The month begins and ends with cupcakes, balloons and wrapping papers strewn all over.
Skylar's big day was celebrated with a cookie cake, cupcakes, pizza, salad and a veggie and dip tray.
Below is my favorite recipe for cupcakes. As you can see, Skylar loved it! This recipe comes from The Cake Mix Doctor :
Basic Sour Cram Whtie Cake
1 package of plain white cake mix
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanillia extract
1) Place rack in center of oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Put cupcakes liners in cupcake pan.
2) Place cake mix, sour cream, oil, eggs and vanilla in large mixing bowl. Blend with electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute. Stop mixing and scrape down sides with a rubber spatula. Increase mixer speed to medium and beat 2 more minutes, scraping sides again if needed.
Batter will be thickened.
3) Spoon batter into cupcake liners, filling each about 3/4 of the way full.
4) Bake for 18-22 minutes.
5) After cupcakes are cool, frost and decorate as desired.
