Funfetti Cupcakes


A few weeks ago my son Remington celebrated his 3rd birthday! He talked about his birthday party for months and months. He picked Batman as the theme and that is exactly what he got! I found these fun little signs here and I also bought the cups, plates, and napkins there too. I think they were the perfect touch to add to his batman party!

My mom is an amazing cook. I have learned almost everything I know from her and spending hours and hours in the kitchen together! She made these cupcakes for Remington's party and they were amazing! And definitely good enough to share with my readers! I hope you enjoy these as much as my little boy and his party guests did!


Funfetti Cupcakes
yields: 2 dozen cupcakes

Cupcakes:
1 1/2 cup self-rising flour
1 1/4 cup cake flour
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles

Icing:
1 lb powdered sugar
1 cube of butter
1 8oz brick of cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles

Cupcakes:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place cupcake liners in 2 12-cup muffin tins. In a small bowl combine the 2 flours. In a kitchen mixer, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy; about 3 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time while mixing. Add the flour mixture in three parts alternating with the milk and vanilla. Then add the bean paste. Scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure that it is all mixed in well. Then grab a spatula and slowly stir in the sprinkles. Carefully spoon the batter in to the muffin tins. Filling about 3/4's full. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Cool the cupcakes for about 15 minutes and then remove from the muffin tins. Remove and place on a cooling rack. Once they are completely cool you can grab the icing and ice them. Sprinkle with some remaining sprinkles and then enjoy!

Icing:
Beat together the butter, cream cheese, and vanilla. Slowly add the powdered sugar. (add some milk if it is too thick) Then slowly mix in the sprinkles with a spatula.
