Funfetti Cupcakes

Let's just get a known fact out of the way...funfetti is probably the best boxed cake out there. Even though I hate using boxed cakes when making from scratch takes pretty much the same amount of effort, sometimes you just need funfetti. And that's why this recipe is amazing. Funfetti from scratch!

Funfetti Cupcakes

Yields 12 cupcakes

Based off of this recipe.

1 2/3c all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1c sugar

1 stick softened butter

1 large egg

1/4c sour cream

3/4c buttermilk

2 tsp vanilla

1/4c rainbow sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350 and place liners in a cupcake pan.

Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add egg, sour cream, and vanilla. Combine after each one.

In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add dry mixture to the butter mixture, alternating between dry and buttermilk. Only mix until combined so you don't overmix. Overmixing=dry cupcakes.

With a spatula, fold in sprinkles. Be careful not to overmix, as the colors begin to melt and run together.

Fill each cupcake liner 3/4 way full. Bake for 20 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool.

Vanilla Buttercream

Yields enough for 24 cupcakes

2 sticked softened butter

3c confectioners sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2-4 tbsp milk

Cream butter until fluffy with an electric mixer. Add sugar slowly. Add vanilla and combine. Add enough milk to soften the texture of the buttercream. Add in small increments so not to make it too runny. 

To get fancy, fill a pastry bag with a 1A Wilton tip. Pipe enough frosting as desired. Eat.
