My grandmother's sweet cousin, Mavis, baked these cupcakes this summer. They make a great presentation and are easy to put together. Of course, they taste great, too!
Angel Wing Cupcakes
1 box white or yellow cake mix
1 cup water
⅓ cup vegetable oil
Powdered sugar for dusting
Vanilla (or cream cheese) icing
Put all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix at a low speed for 4 minutes. Mix on medium speed for 5-6 minutes. Put mixture 2/3 full in cupcake pan - line the cups with paper fillers. Cook for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees. When the cupcakes are done, allow them to cool for a few minutes. Cut the tops off gently. Then, cut them in half (to make "wings"). Spread icing over the flat tops of the cup cakes. Turn the wings on their sides and place them on top of the icing (see picture). Then dust the cupcakes with powdered sugar.
