When it came time to meet with the bride for the wedding cake I made about a month ago, she told me that her groom wanted Funfetti cake. I just looked at her with a blank stare. Boxed cake mix for your wedding cake?!
Luckily, we both came to the conclusion that we could do red velvet for the cake and a homemade confetti cake for cupcakes. I found a great recipe for the cupcakes online and was pleased to hear that the groom absolutely loved it.
Adapted from How Sweet It Is
Makes about 12 cupcakes
- 7 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 egg whites
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/4 cup brightly colored sprinkles
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg whites and vanilla. Mix until combined. Add half the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Then add the milk followed by the rest of the flour, baking powder, and salt. Fold in the sprinkles just until thoroughly mixed throughout.
Pour batter into cupcake tins and fill about 2/3 of the way full. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool and frost with frosting of choice.
(Unfortunately, in the chaos of making my first wedding cake, only one picture was taken of the cupcakes.)
