90’s Themed Churro Cupcakes

Sarah, a friend of my daughter’s, asked if we would make some Churro Cupcakes for her husband Hector’s 90’s themed birthday party so we decided to make the cupcakes 90’s themed as well.

With Rubik’s Cubes and

Tamagotchis and

Skateboards. The original recipe topped the cupcakes with churros which would be yummy too.

Happy Birthday Hector! We love you!


1 box French Vanilla cake mix plus ingredients to make cake (I didn’t have a vanilla cake mix so I used a white one and added 2 teaspoons of vanilla to it)

1 small box vanilla instant pudding mix

1 tablespoon cinnamon


3/4 cup butter, softened

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 – 2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 – 3 tablespoons milk

around 3 cups of powdered sugar

churros for topping, homemade or from the freezer section

cinnamon and sugar

1 For the cupcakes, preheat oven to 350. Line 2 muffin tins with paper liners.

2 Prepare cake mix according to package directions, adding the pudding mix and cinnamon along with other ingredients. Scoop batter into prepared pans and bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until the cupcakes bounce back when touched lightly. Let cool.

3 For the frosting, beat together butter, vanilla, and cinnamon until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, alternating with milk until frosting is thick, smooth, and fluffy.

4 Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Top as desired.

Yield: around 16 – 17 cupcakes
