Vanilla Sprinkle Cupcakes

 

 

 

Well, what can I tell you – this cupcake recipe is just SO GOOD! We modified it a little to make Red, White, and Blue Cupcakes and thankfully it didn’t affect the taste.

These Vanilla Sprinkle Cupcakes are closer to the original idea of Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes from Sally’s Baking Addiction and perfect for Valentine’s Day, or just because. We made it in June 😉

Or simply switch out the sprinkle shapes and colors to match any occasion!

Our baking “themes” usually come from something E requests. For this one, it was “sprinkle cupcakes”.

When she picked red and white heart sprinkles and nonpareils, I didn’t yet realize how these cupcakes would turn out – but I have to say, I loved it when I saw it!

This simple cupcake batter recipe doesn’t require an electric mixer, and E did most of the hand mixing.

She mixed the heart sprinkles in first

before adding the nonpareils. They turned the batter slightly pink.

To match the heart theme, E picked out some pretty cupcake liners we had on hand

and filled them. {This technique made us realize that you do have to put the cupcake liners in the muffin tin first if you don’t want a wide, flat cupcake 😉 }

They looked great straight out of the oven, but E insisted on making frosting. We both tried our luck with it – it’s really not as easy as it looks 😉

But with lots of sprinkles and colored sugar on top, our cupcakes still ended up looking pretty good 🙂
