Hi all!
Sorry this is late, but better than never I suppose! These came out really well! Everyone at work that tried them loved them! Here it is:

1 package German Chocolate cake mix
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees, line 24 cupcake cups.
2. Place the cake mix, buttermilk, oil, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.
3. Blend with an electric mixer on low for 30 seconds.
4. Stop machine and scrape down sides with rubber spatula.
5. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat 2 minutes more, scrape down the sides again if needed.
6. Spoon or scoop 1/3 cup batter into each lined cupcake cup, filling it 3/4 full. Place in oven.
7. Bake for 16-20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean after inserted.
8. Place cupcakes on a wire rack to cool for 15 minutes before frosting.

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
6-8 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1. Place the butter in a large mixing bowl.
2. Add in 4 cups sugar, then the milk and vanilla.
3. On medium speed of an electric mixer, beat about 3-5 minutes or until smooth and creamy.
4. Gradually add the remaining sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating well (about 2 minutes) after each addition, until the icing is thick enough for good spreading consistency (you may not need all of the sugar).
5. Divide frosting evenly in 3 bowls.
6. Color the frosting in one bowl with red food coloring, another with green food coloring. Leave the frosting in the third bowl white.
7. Frost cupcakes in stripes, either spread with a knife or icing spatula or pipe with a fun tip. Make sure green is on the left, red is on the right and white is in the middle to accurately represent the Mexican flag. To represent the seal in the middle, use a disc of melting chocolate or Hershey's mini-kisses upside down.
8. ENJOY!!!

The icing can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
