Funfetti Vanilla Cupcakes
Fall’s around the corner according to the calendar. I still can’t tell by walking out my door, we’re still in the 90’s and that’s not the feels like temperature.
I’m always on the lookout for a great vanilla cake recipe. This one makes great cupcakes and with the fall colored sprinkles it makes me at least think of fall. These cupcakes have a wonderful texture, they’re moist and loaded with vanilla flavor. I frosted them with a Cream Cheese Buttercream because I had some made up but I think I’ll make a chocolate frosting when I make them again. Either one would be good, it just depends on your taste preferences.
Have you used the new grease proof cupcake holders yet? These chocolate ones are grease proof and I love the way the color is the same as when it went into the oven. The orange ones below are too.
