Snickerdoodle+Cinnamon Cream Cheese

January 28, 2008 at 9:29 PM | Posted in cupcakes, decor | 26 Comments

My favorite cookie is a snickerdoodle. I even named my bunny, Snickerdoodle, for her beautiful orangy-reddish-brown fur. There’s something simply sinfully sweet about a sugar cookie with cinnamon flecks.

WARNING: If you are adverse to cake mixes, do not read (Nikki). LOL.

(Recipe from | photos from me!)

Makes ~20 cupcakes


For cupcakes
1 package plain white cake mix (I used Betty Crocker white cake mix)
1 cup whole milk
1 stick of butter, melted
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

For frosting
1 stick butter
3 3/4 cup confectioners sugar
3-4 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon

[NOTES: I used a different frosting recipe. See link below.]


To make cupcakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line your cupcake tin.

Place cake mix, milk, melted butter, eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Blend for three minutes (stop to scrape once).

Pour into pans and bake for 22-25 minutes. Allow the cakes to cool completely before frosting.

To make frosting
Beat butter until fluffy for frosting. Add all other ingredients.

  7. KRMWV, oh whew! Glad you can give me insider jail info. I definitely think I am low security. ::giving innocent look::

    TEMPERED, welll… its probably b/c I used a cake mix! haha. you do your thang girlfriend but I reserve the right to steal your non-cake mix snickerdoodle recipe later. LOL.

  8. How the heck did you have time to make these AND the daring baker’s challenge. Man~ you are hard core girlfriend! I love the snickerdoodle inspiration but I’m a nocakeinabox snob as well.
