Funfetti Cupcakes

20 mins
40 minutes

Who doesn’t love sprinkles? (or jimmies depending on where you may be located) I will use sprinkles since I’m a midwest girlie. They just make everything happier and I like happy. I will choose the happy treat every time. We are coming out of Christmas baking mode, but I am thinking about New Year’s Eve treats. I’m not a big NYE celebrator. Mainly because I”m getting older, don’t enjoy big crowds or real pants and have a toddler. So I imagine my NYE will be very low key.

However, I will be trading in the bars and sequin dresses for one of these Funfetti cupcakes with my hubby and my favorite girl. I’d say that is a great trade in my book.

These Funfetti cupcakes are super easy and just a vanilla cupcake who got into her mama’s makeup. Perfect for a festive and fun NYE. Do you guys have big New Year’s Eve plans? Can I live vicariously through you?
