Mini Funfetti Cupcakes are the perfect treat to make for a birthday party! They are cute, colorful, festive, and so delicious! Bring on the sprinkles!
These are not just any Mini Funfetti Cupcakes. These cupcakes are to celebrate a very special birthday…my good friend Katie’s blog Twin Stripe is turning 3 this week and I am so excited to be celebrating with her!
When Katie invited me to join in Twin Stripe’s birthday celebration, I knew I had to make something with sprinkles, because nothing says birthday quite like sprinkles! I decided Mini Funfetti Cupcakes would be the perfect party treat. Cute, easy to eat, festive, and delicious!
And you have a chance to join in on the celebration as well! Twin Stripe is giving away a birthday prize pack full of birthday treats and some of Katie’s favorite things. Scroll to the bottom of the post and enter to win the GIVEAWAY!
Katie, the lovely lady behind Twin Stripe, is so creative. Her posts are a great mix of food, fashion, crafts and design and they are always impeccably styled and beautifully photographed. Katie and I actually went to high school together in good ‘ol St. Louis, MO! We lost touch in college, but re-kindled our friendship through our blogs which I think is just awesome. Katie also created my logo for me – she is truly so talented!
She sent me the cutest box of birthday goodies to help me create my post. I actually borrowed some of them for Chez CateyLou’s birthday post!
These are a pretty standard funfetti cupcake recipe, just made in a mini version! I made half the cupcakes with cupcake liners and half without – I recommend using a cupcake liner. The ones without just looked too muffin-y to me!
The cupcakes are topped with a delicious vanilla buttercream frosting, which is my favorite icing for funfetti cake. I started icing my cupcakes by piping the icing to make it look pretty, but quickly got tired of doing it that way – I do not have much patience when it comes to icing! I finished off the cupcakes with just a simple icing job, which I personally think looks just as good as the fancy piping, especially if you are topping with sprinkles! It is how they do it at Magnolia Bakery after all! Plus I like more cake than icing on my cupcakes – piping the icing results in more frosting on the cupcake. If you want to pipe icing on all the mini cupcakes, I suggest doubling the recipe.
And now for the GIVEAWAY! Good luck, and thanks for entering! Happy Birthday, Twin Stripe!
