Funfetti Cupcakes Recipe

There's nothing more festive than funfetti cupcakes. They are cheerful and fun and so colorful! So when I found this pastel colored sprinkles I knew it was time to make some funfetti cupcakes in the colors of Spring. This recipe is super easy to make at home, it's also a crowd favorite and literally everyone will ask you for the recipe, that's how good they are. We hope that you love this Funfetti Cupcakes Recipe.

The secret for the deliciousness in these cupcakes is the frosting. Sure the cupcake base is super moist and fluffy and packed with vanilla flavor but that frosting…yum! The frosting is the single most fluffy and delicious thing you'll have this week and I'm not even a huge fan of frosting so I'm being completely honest here.

To make the frosting super fluffy and creamy whip up the butter first, really whip it up for a couple of minutes before incorporating the powdered sugar. When you whip up the butter alone you incorporate more air to your frosting and in result get a fluffier one. All it takes is 3 more minutes and the result is totally worth it!

And then the sprinkles, not only they add a beautiful pop of color but they also help cover all the little mistakes that may happen when piping. So you don't need to be a master decorator to have a beautiful cupcake, just cover your mistakes with a healthy dose of sprinkles and no one is going to notice them.

I choose to only add sprinkles to the frosting but you can also incorporate them into the batter to funfetiffy your cupcakes even more. Just add 1/8 Cup of sprinkles to the batter before baking them and that's it.

Once you take them out of the oven wait until they are no longer hot to the touch before decorating them, serve and try to not eat them all by yourself.
