Aren’t those cute?
I love the bright colors and sprinkles.
I’ve shared before that I am not good at decorating cakes or cupcakes. I just don’t make pretty food. So it made me really happy that I was able to make these cupcakes.
I used a star tip. Starting in the center, I just squirted (is the proper word piped?) around in a circle until the top of the cupcake was covered. Simple!
And using two contrasting colors of frosting made for a more festive presentation. I even sprinkled the cupcakes with sprinkles from both types of frosting.
You can get 12 regular sized cupcakes and 24 mini cupcakes from 1 box of Funfetti cake mix. It’s fun to have two different sizes for people with a big or small sweet tooth.
We don’t have any birthdays coming up, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a reason to celebrate. We shared these cupcakes to celebrate Jim coming home from a three week business trip. We were all so glad to have him home!
