Pistachio Cupcakes

We are a little CRAZY over cupcakes right now...like you couldn't tell. Trust me, there are more to come! These sweet little treats are moist and sooooooo good. They are sort of a "light" cupcake compared to a chocolate cupcake...BUT light or heavy, chocolate or any other...I ADORE cupcakes, and these are no exception!

Pistachio Cupcakes

1 box white cake mix
1 pkg instant pistachio pudding mix
1 c. oil
3 eggs
1 c. sprite

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredient together until combined. Line muffin tin with paper liners, spray each liner with pan coating. Fill each liner 1/2 or 2-3 full of batter. I filled mine too full and ended up cleaning the drippings from the bottom of the oven...I recommend 1/2 full. Bake for 13-17 minutes or until done. Cool and frost.

Pistachio Frosting:
2 envelopes Dream Whip
1 1 /4 c. cold milk
2 pkg. instant pistachio pudding mix
2 t. vanilla

Combine milk and Dream whip. Beat on high until it forms a peak. Add pudding and vanilla. Beat until mixed completely. Pipe or spread onto cupcakes. Top with chopped pistachio's if desired. THESE must be refrigerated.
