Funfetti cupcakes!

I found myself one lazy saturday scrolling across some wonderful food blogs(as i often do) and stumbled upon this fantastic looking recipe of Jessica's for homemade Funfetti cupcakes. Whilst im no American, i have travelled there many times due to family in Virginia & have eaten funfetti cake mix many a time, so seeing this recipe made me quite nostalgic and i knew that i had to make them!

Jessica's recipe:

Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes
*1/2 cup butter
*1 cup sugar
*2 whole eggs
*1 Tbsp vanilla extract
*1 1/2 cups flour
*1 tsp baking powder
*1/3 cup milk
*1/3 cup assorted brightly colored sprinkles + more for top of frosting
Preheat oven to 180C.
Cream butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add half of the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Add the milk. Once mixed, add remaining dry ingredients. Fold in assorted sprinkles.
Pour into cupcake tins and fill 2/3 of the way full. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Let cool, then frost.

Vanilla Buttercream
1cup butter, softened
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp of milk, if needed
Cream butter in the bowl of an electric mixture until completely smooth and creamy. With the mixer on low speed, add in powdered sugar slowly. Gradually increase mixer speed and add vanilla, then beat for 2-3 minutes, scraping down sides and bottom of the bowl. If frosting is too thick, add milk 1 teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is reached If it’s too thin, add sugar gradually until it thickens. Frost cupcakes and top with sprinkles.

Now dig in & have a bite!
