Last weekend, we celebrated Easter a week early with my extended family and this year we decided to mix things up and decorate Funfetti® Cupcakes instead of eggs. Decorating cupcakes is way more fun and tastes a lot better than eggs. And remember a couple weeks ago I told you that I stocked up on Funfetti® mixes on my weekly shopping trip to Walmart?
Well, that made it easy for me to bring everything we needed to decorate cupcakes to my families Easter celebration because I already had the Funfetti® cake mix and Funfetti® frosting mixes. My family loved using all different types of SPRINKLES to decorate their own cupcakes.
So this Easter, mix up a moment and make your own Funfetti® Cupcakes this Easter. HAPPY EASTER!
JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:
✓ MELTED BUTTER INSTEAD OF OIL: I like to use melted butter instead of vegetable oil because it adds a little extra flavor to the cupcake and the cupcakes come out so moist. They taste homemade without all the work!
✓ SCOOPING THE BATTER: I like to use an ice cream scooper not only to frost these cupcakes but to also fill the cupcake batter into each cupcake tin. It makes it super easy and you know that each cupcake will be the same size.
