birthday cupcakes

DD is celebrating a birthday this weekend. That means cupcakes for the classroom.

Like me, she prefers white cake over chocolate. I decided to add some sprinkles to the batter to give the cupcakes a bit of fun color. Ummm…maybe a tablespoon? I didn’t measure.

add some sprinkles

Don’t add the sprinkles until the batter is completely mixed. Work quickly to stir them in with as little mixing as possible. The color will begin to melt immediately.

Cool completely before frosting.

I have a drawer full of sugary sprinkles and cookie decorations. But these tiny little balls have always been my favorite.

And inside, little bits of color.

She transported them in the cupcake tin. Easiest way to do it. White cake, lots of frosting. The only way to go.

    What is your recipe for frosting? I am still looking for the “perfect” recipe. 🙂

    Carol, I use the frosting recipe in this post.

    The recipe there calls for 1/2 tsp. almond ext. I usually don’t measure…just pour some in and we may use a bit more, as it’s a favorite flavor with my family. If you’re family doesn’t care for almond, you may substitute a teaspoon of clear vanilla flavoring. ~~Rhonda
