Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting and Pecans
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® yellow cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
2 containers (12 oz each) Betty Crocker® Whipped cream cheese frosting
1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1 Heat oven to 350ºF. Place paper baking cup in each of 18 regular-size muffin cups. In small bowl, stir together sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
2 Make cake batter as directed on box. Fill muffin cups about 1/2 full. Spoon generous 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon sugar onto center of batter in each cup; top cinnamon sugar with the remaining batter divided evenly among cups. In each cup, swirl batter with toothpick to create a spiral effect.
3 Bake about 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
4 Place frosting in decorating bag fitted with round tip #20. Starting at outer edge of cupcakes, pipe frosting in spiral pattern, gradually elevating to a peak in center; garnish with pecans.
