1 Bottle of Vegetable Oil

Line cupcake pan with your designated cupcake liners.
Scoop out 1 1/2 scoops of the cake batter into each cupcake liner.
Place in oven for 19 minutes.
Step 4: Step #4
Halfway through the baking process, switch the pans around so that the cupcakes bake evenly.
When finished cooking, place a toothpick in the middle to make sure they are completely cooked.
Remove cupcakes from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.

Once cupcakes are completely cooled, mix the icing until it is completely whipped and fluffy.
Remove the icing from the container and place it into a small mixing bowl for easier access.

Scoop out a small amount of the center of the cupcake.
Make sure that the scoop is deep enough so that you can taste the filling in the first bite of the cupcake, making sure that you don't cut through the bottom of the cupcake.

Use the egg-shaped candy of your choice and place in the center of the cupcake with sprinkles.
