I need help. I wanted to make these cupcakes for a party tomorrow and something went really wrong. I got the recipe from this site, but there were no comments left under it and it scored high so that is why I tried it. They sunk in the middle, burned on the top and caved in in the cupcake wrapper. If you picked them up they didn't hold their shape on the bottom. The one that was a little o.k. tasted great so I would love to find a recipe that uses a box cake mix (yellow or butter) and use the powder coffee-mate the recipe calls for and the small box of instant white chocolate pudding. Without the cream and butter I never made cake/cupcakes with heavy cream and/or butter before so I'm thinking that is what went wrong...Anyone have any ideas? I posted the recipe I used below. Thanks! Kelly

I think this cake had way too much liquid and fat. Sorry I dont use mixes but maybe you can use the wasc base and add the creamer and maybe use caramel pudding...hope this helps
