Recipe: Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes


I went to a baby shower on Saturday. Well, sort of. The baby had already been born. Basically, we were planning to have a little shower for my friend who was due March 7. The original plan was to have the shower at a restaurant (simple, simple) on February 6. A blizzard hit us that weekend, and we were unable to have the shower. So, we rescheduled for February 27. The baby came early in the morning on February 27, so we finally got together with mommy and baby this past Saturday.

My contribution was to bring cupcakes. This is because my other friend was bringing her two boys, and the mommy already has a boy of her own. I figured cupcakes are more manageable for kids to eat (at least in my childless brain), and everyone loves cupcakes, right? I thought about getting them from Snickerdoodles, but to be honest, I was never impressed with Snickerdoodles' cupcakes (I think they do better with whole cakes), and since I hemmed and hawed about it for days, I failed to order them in time anyway, which meant I'd probably be faced with cupcakes decorated for NCAA and/or birthdays. Not quite what I was after. So, I decided to make them.

What kind of cupcake says "baby shower?" And what kind of cupcake would mommy like? I perused the Cakespy website, and decided on the Homemade Funfetti Ones. This recipe was a cinch to make, and the cupcakes turned out delicious! I followed what one of the commenters suggested and used flower sprinkles instead of regular rainbow sprinkles. This was more pastel and the Weis Market really only had Christmas colors of sprinkles anyway. I guess there hasn't been a big market for cake decorating supplies this time of year.

I went out and bought a cake decorating set, with the bag that you fill with icing and put the tips on. It was some usual Kim shenanigans, with getting pink colored icing all over the place. Plus, the cupcakes did not look like the photo above at all. They looked like they had pink worms crawling on them. Oh well, close enough, and they tasted good. I'm going to try for prettier ones next time. I wish I'd taken a photo.

Anyway, you can follow the link above to Cakespy, or see the original post at iheartcuppycakes.
