For those of you celebrating Easter this weekend, here’s a fun dessert that everyone will love. Funfetti cupcakes were always my go-to dessert of choice (to make) in college. From a box, of course. I have a very specific memory of one of my friends asking me to make a cake for his girlfriend (one of my sorority sisters) and him being really impressed by the funfetti sheet cake I made. Topped with frosting from a tub. I even got one of those frosting tubes to write on the cake. It’s kind of funny to think about now.
Obviously a lot has changed since those days, but I still love funfetti. What’s not to love about a vanilla cake studded with sprinkles? I love a good white cake, and this one is just that. The cupcakes are light, fluffy and moist – everything a good vanilla cupcake should be.
You can use any type of sprinkles you want, but I prefer the round ones (quins, so named because they’re like sequins). I was worried mine were too big, but I couldn’t find the smaller size anywhere. These ended up working just fine, though. No matter which sprinkles you use, you can’t really go wrong when you’re putting sprinkles in a cupcake.
