These funfetti cupcakes are my all time favorite go-to vanilla cupcake recipe. They’re essentially a basic vanilla cupcake with a ton of sprinkles thrown in to make them “funfetti.” I’ve tested a what seems like a billion recipes for vanilla cupcakes and they all never really come out the way I’m looking for. They’re either too crumbly, too dry, too dense and thats not what we want. We want light, fluffy, moist (sorry) and tender cupcakes with a bold vanilla flavor and that’s what I’m giving you guys today!
These truly bake up perfectly and are just amazing all around.
To add a little something different, instead of topping them with a vanilla frosting, I went the extra mile and made it a cake batter frosting! Holy moly, this stuff is good. I could have eaten the frosting by the spoonful. You would think that using cake mix would make the frosting super sweet, but for me, I actually think it balances out the powdered sugar and gives it a really delicious cake batter flavor that’s not overwhelming.
