Shakeeb, 23, Toronto. Geography major. University of Toronto. Diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2008 and have been living day to day with the struggles that come with it. I love hockey more than anything in the world. I have an irrational fear of approaching girls since they're all out of my league. I like like writing haikus. A LOT of them! My blog is nothing amazing, so I won't be offended if you don't follow. I also have a Twitter so you can get "at" me so to speak. I don't bite, so you can always ask me things. Stay dope and stay you! Much love!

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cupcakes

  • 1 French Vanilla cake mix
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 3 tsp vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • Brown sugar to top cupcakes
Pour your batter into cupcake liners and bake for 13-15 minutes at 350ºF. Once a tooth pick comes out clean, set aside and allow the cupcakes to cool before icing. While letting them cool you can start making your icing.

For the buttercream icing:

  • 1 1/2 cups butter (room temperature)
  • 1 3/4 cup cinnamon toast crunch cereal crumbs (run through a food processor)
  • 5 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp Wilton butter flavouring
  • 4-5 cups icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp condensed milk
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Whipped cream to texture if you don’t like a heavier buttercream icing
Mix all the ingredients together until you get a desired consistency. When icing these, I tried to use my 1M Wilton Icing tip, but it got all clogged up thanks to the micro-bits of cereal still in it. So I switched to my Wilton Round 12 tip instead and that worked just great. After icing the cupcakes, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (which is just equal parts cinnamon to sugar), and top with a Cinnamon Toast Crunch square, place in mouth and enjoy! The recipe yields roughly 24-30 cupcakes.
 
 

Fuck all the things I learned doing that expensive degree hanging on the wall. This is the most valuable piece of knowledge I’ve ever come across.
