A lot of others seem not to get as much yield, but I only need one box of cake mix for the Giant Cupcake, and one box for 2 doz + cupcakes.
Not sure what I do differently but some say they need more than one box for the Giant Cupcake. I have never used more than one box. I've probably made at least 15 or so by now and never used more than one box.
Sorry about that.
I seldom get the full 24 from a single cake mix. If this party is for small children, maybe the more skimpy size you get by making 24 is suitable.
You can add a Jiffy mix and the ingredients it calls for. But for the price you are proably better off just using another mix.
Have you seen hpjmom's extender recipe? Look in the Recipes forum.
I will definitely check out hjpmom's extender recipe. Thanks to both of you for answering!
The thing is if you really need all 24 cupcakes and I thought Jeanne's suggestion was really good.
Basically instead of filling them 3/4 full just fill them 1/2 full. That would definitely give you enough batter left to fill the jumbo cupcake for the little one.
This way there is not adjusting the recipe or having something now come out right because it's the first time that you tried it. If it does not come out right, then you are buying another mix anyway.
Hope you are able to figure it out and if you use the extender recipe I really hope it works for you.
