Day 19 – Funfetti Cupcakes

19 Aug

Who doesn’t love a Funfetti Cupcake?  I know, I know, they mostly come in box form.  That’s why I had to try this homemade Funfetti Cupcake (recipe below from Mom Luck).

Alright, so they do taste a bit like a box cake…huh.  Very dense, maybe borderline dry.  But they’re so cute!

Frosting is simple and creamy.  Strong vanilla flavor — maybe more than it needs.

Oh, those are adorable!!  Right?!  Now, the frosting cuts a little of the dry, density of the cake.  Very sweet!  Like a sugar cookie with frosting!  (I didn’t say bad…I said sweet.)  It’s a great, easy take on a traditional funfetti cupcake.  If you’re a box-free enthusiast (like me), this is exactly the look and flavor without the box!
