Black Section Separator

Homemade cupcakes with sprinkles and a huge vanilla buttercream swirl make the perfect birthday cupcake. Funfetti Cupcakes are perfect for any occasion!  


– 1 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour – 1 cup granulated sugar – 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon baking soda – 4 large egg white – 1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract – 1 cup milk – 1/4 cup vegetable oil – 1/3 cup rainbow sprinkles For the frosting – 1 cup unsalted butter softened – 4 cups powdered sugar – 2 tablespoons milk – 1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract – 1/4 teaspoon fine salt – ¼ cup 


Heat the oven to 350°F. Reserve cupcake pan liners. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda to a stand mixer with the paddle attachment and mix on low speed. 

Step 1

Add egg whites and vanilla, stir until smooth, and scrape sides with a rubber spatula. Scrape the sides as you mix the milk and oil. Mix in colorful sprinkles. 

Step 2

Fill cupcake liners ⅔ full with 3 tablespoons of batter, avoiding overfilling. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 16-18 minutes. 

Step 3

Wait 10 minutes to cool in pan. Transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely. 

Step 4

After the cupcakes cool, cream butter in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment until smooth to make the frosting. 

Step 5

Gradually add powdered sugar until fully mixed. Stir in milk, vanilla, and salt. Scrape sides. On medium-high speed, whip for 3 minutes until light and fluffy. 

Step 6

Add colorful rainbow sprinkles. Frost confetti cupcakes. I prefer piping bags with Wilton 2A round tips. Serve with more sprinkles if desired.
