Baking with children can be super fun! Not only is baking a great way to bond with your little one, but it also stimulates their creativity.
Children will love making these Funfetti Cupcakes. The recipe is easy to make and the sprinkles will sure to get any kid excited to put their baking skills to the test. After the cupcakes are done, pack a few up for your child to bring to school for their classmates and favorite teachers.
Funfetti Cupcake Ingredients
1 C. sugar
½ C. butter or margarine softened
3 egg whites
1 ½ C. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
½ C. milk
2 tsp. vanilla
½ C. multicolored sprinkles – you might want to add a little bit more or less depending on how colorful you’d like your cupcakes to be + extra to sprinkle on top of your frosting
24 Silicone Baking Cups (highly recommend these!)
½ C. REAL butter, softened to room temperature
4 C. powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
5-6 tbs. milk (you may want a little more or a little less depending on how thick you like your frosting)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
#1. Combine the sugar, butter, vanilla, milk, and eggs and mix well. Stir in flour, baking powder and mix well. Slowly fold in the ½ cup of multicolored sprinkles.
#2. Pour the batter evenly into the 24 silicone baking cups and bake 15-20 minutes. Around 15-16 minutes insert a toothpick into one of the cupcakes and if it comes out clean they are done. Let the cupcakes cool completely prior to frosting.
Using a hand mixer, combine the softened butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and a few tablespoons of milk (start with 3-4). Beat until light and fluffy and add in another tablespoon or two of milk and continue to beat until nice a fluffy (about 3-4 minutes on high).
Once your cupcakes are completely cooled, you can remove them from the silicone baking cups. They should pop right out and then you can generously frost them and add extra sprinkles on top.
*Makes approximately 24 cupcakes. 1 cupcake = 1 serving. Store covered in airtight container 1-2 weeks.
