Rum Cake Cupcakes

Hi Y'all!
I don't know about you, but I had a pretty amazing summer! Okay, so most of my summer was spent working, but it's where I work that made it amazing! I'm not sure if I mentioned before that I had gotten a job at Six Flags Over Texas, but that's where I work!
 This summer was pretty busy for me, I did do some baking but didn't have the chance to write up blog posts for everything.. I even got way behind on my reading! A couple weeks ago we had a private event for Frito-Lay at work and I got to have my picture taken with Chester Cheetah! How cool is that?!
(That's me in the blue jacket..)
Sadly the season is coming to an end, but that means good news for y'all!
 I'm back and I've got tons of recipes to share!!
I'm going to start with a recipe my friend, Syd gave me.  This recipe was handed down to her by her grandmother. I had some pictures, but I can't seem to find them.. Sorry.. Y'all will just have to trust me that  the look awesome and taste amazing!

Rum Cake Cupcakes:

1 yellow cake mix
1 (4-serving size) instant vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup cold milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup spiced rum

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients in large bowl for 2-3 minutes. When batter is smooth, fill cupcake tins 3/4 full. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown. Top with powdered sugar while hot, or if you want an alcoholic topping...

Optional glaze:

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup rum
Eat and Enjoy!
What did you do over summer?
