Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 24 cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 1 c buttermilk
  • 1/2 c vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 24 gold cupcake liners
  • 2 cans chocolate frosting
  • 24 candy lightning bolts
  • gold star sprinkles
  • 24 sucker sticks, 4 inches
  • 24 Harry Potter cupcake toppers, printed and cut out

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two muffin tins with 24 cupcake liners.
  • Combine cake mix, buttermilk, vegetable oil, and eggs in an electric mixer. Use an ice cream scoop to distribute cake mix evenly amongst the 24 cupcake liners, about 2/3 full. Bake 15-17 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Carefully remove from pans and place on a wire rack to cool.
  • Affix a frosting bag with 1M star tip. Add frosting and pipe onto each cupcake. Immediately add star sprinkles. 
  • Tape a sucker stick to the back of each cupcake topper. Insert into the center of each cupcake, then insert a candy lightning bolt into all (or some) cupcakes. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

While the candy lightning bolts are awesome, you don't necessarily need them on every cupcake. It would be cute to just put one on half of them!
