by now you should know this favorite time and calorie saving trick of mine - 12 ounces carbonated beverage plus boxed cake mix (just the dry mix, nothing else) makes cupcakes.  it is just that easy.  soda, beer, champagne, just mix it with dry cake mix and it'll bake right up.

so that's step one of the easiest jack and coke cupcakes you could ever make.  i.e. perfect for the last minute father's day dessert.  mix 12 ounces coke or diet coke (or pepsi if that's your jam) with chocolate boxed cake mix.  two ingredients, you know you love it.  mix them until the batter is just a bit lumpy, and place into liners in a cupcake pan.  bake according to directions on your box, usually around 16 minutes at 350 degrees.  always go the lower of the time suggestion, this is how you keep them moist since they continue to cook while in the hot pan (duh) even after you pull them out of the oven.

allow them to cool completely, undoubtedly the longest time period in this whole recipe.

for the frosting, beat 1 and 3/4 sticks of room temperature butter in a bowl for about 1 minute.  slowly add 6 cups of powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup honey jack daniels whiskey. beat until creamy.

frost and enjoy!
