Cost  $3.18 for 72 mini-muffins  $.13 for a serving of 3 muffins


Perfect for freezer.
Sam's Club has confectioner's sugar for $4.58 for 7 pounds.
If you do a lot of baking this is cheapest way to buy confectioner's sugar, 18 cents a cup versus 27 1/4 cents a cup.
I got a great buy on cake mixes at Kroger for $.49 and my eggs are free, so
my cost  is $1.76  or $.07 a serving

Cost of ingredients based on the online prices at Wal-Mart in my area.
