RECIPE TO TRY – CONFETTI CUPCAKES

 

I was in the mood to relive my childhood days.  The responsibilities of being an adult (yuck) were weighing heavily on my shoulders and I thought that a confetti cupcake was the answer (it was).  I wanted a quick fix and almost (gasp!) bought the box mix for funfetti cupcakes.  Instead, I took a deep breath and reminded myself that the extra 20 minutes it takes to make it homemade is so worth it.  I found the recipe here.  Next time, I would probably add 10 times (okay, maybe not that much) the amount of sprinkles because I LOVE the way the colored confetti pops against the vanilla cake.  I felt seven years old again… and it was blissful…. for the entire 10 seconds that it took me to inhale this to-die-for cupcake.
