Step by Step Method
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line cupcake pans with 24 paper liners and set aside.
With an electric mixer, blend the cake mix, milk, melted butter, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon until well combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase mixer speed to medium and beat 2 more minutes more, scraping the sides down again, if needed. The batter should look well combined.
Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Place the pans in the oven side by side.
Bake until the cupcakes are golden brown and spring back when lightly pressed with your finger, about 15-20 minutes.
Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove them to wire racks to cool completely, about 30 minutes.
While the cupcakes cool, prepare the frosting. Place the butter in a large mixing bowl and blend with an electric mixer at low speed until fluffy, about 30 seconds.
Add the powdered sugar, 3 tbsp. milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Blend with the mixer on low speed until the sugar is incorporated, about 1 minute. Increase the speed to medium and beat until light and fluffy, 1 minute more. Blend in up to 1 tbsp. milk if the frosting seems stiff.
Spread or pipe the frosting on top of the cupcakes. Store the cupcakes, uncovered, in the refrigerator until the frosting sets, about 20 minutes.
