Fun! Fun! Funetti Cupcakes.

Who doesn't smile just a little when you see a cake or your favorite cupcakes covered in a variety of colored sprinkles? I know I do. I had some inspiration while I was researching recipes for the perfect vanilla cupcake and I came across some really yummy examples and motivated me to create something of my own..covered in sprinkles, of course.

I ended up using my old stand by vanilla cake recipe and its perfect and very simple to whip up if you need something yummy, like my daughter did, the night before she needed cupcakes and failed to warn me till the night before the event. So I decided to whip up some vanilla cupcakes using my very simple Vanilla cake recipe and dumped in a ton of sprinkles to add that little "smile" to the batter.


I love the little flecks of color it adds to the finished cupcake. Of course the cupcakes really wouldn't be really finished until I whipped up on of the best frosting's I have tried yet. I can only give the credit to an amazing baker who I admire and follow diligently. Her name is Rosie and she is the baker behind Sweetapolita a beautifully photographed and very delicious site to visit. I want to try everything on her blog.

I swirled on the frosting and added more sprinkles to the tops. Who could resist all those sprinkles atop so much frosting! They were a hit with my daughter and her friends.
