I'm not sure if you know this or not, but in terms of netiquette and posting something, putting sentences in ALL CAPS IS LIKE YOU ARE SCREAMING. Most folks will use all caps to emphasize a word, and it really is more difficult to read something in all caps.

I know if you do a search for White Almond Sour Cream, you will find a most excellent recipe that uses boxed cake mix.

If you do a search for, say, cakes from scratch, you may come up with a few ideas if you want to get away from using box mixes. Those recipes will indicate the measurements of different ingredients, and with a bit of math, you can figure out the ratio of one ingredient to another.

The best thing you can do is use the recipe search on here and select cupcakes (although a lot of the regular recipes can be turned into cupcakes- check comments!)

Also, just search "cupcake recipes" on a search engine and I suggest stick to the recipes that have been tried and rated by other users- less chance of a nasty cake then.

Good luck!!
