Great Canadian HEINZ Ketchup Cake Recipe

So a few days ago, I saw on my Facebook feed that someone attempted to make the Great Canadian HEINZ Ketchup Cake that was on the back of his ketchup bottle. There were some mixed reviews, and I knew I just had to try to judge for myself. Well, not only did I make the recipe, I actually made it into cupcakes to share with people around Lake Nona in Orlando. I opted out in using their cream cheese frosting,and decided to use my own Crusting Cream Cheese Buttercream.
