Prepare your cake mix as directed and pour it into your greased cupcake pan. Only fill each cupcake halfway. It'll be much easier to get the cupcakes into the cups if they're flatter. You don't need cupcake liners because your customers will be eating these straight from the cup. Bake your cupcakes as directed and allow them to cool completely.

(Expert tip: when using boxed cake mix, add a couple of tablespoons more oil than it calls for. This will make your cupcakes much more moist!)

2. Assemble Your Cups

Once your cupcakes have cooled completely and you've prepared your frosting, you can start assembling your cupcake cups. Start by adding a cupcake to the bottom of your cup. Pipe a layer of frosting on top of that. Add your sprinkles on top of that. Place your second cupcake on your frosting layer. Pipe frosting over that. Finish with your sprinkles.

After assembling your cups, top them with their lids. You may want to add a label to each cup with the flavor. After this, you're ready to sell them!
