Cake Batter Frosting and Funfetti Cupcakes is a perfect Birthday treat! Made from a simple box cake mix (yes, box cake) with some ingredient swaps and topped with a yummy cake batter buttercream frosting.
July in my family has a bunch of Birthdays. Every week we celebrate multiple and one is my sons! This year we made Cake Batter Frosting and Funfetti Cupcakes because they are simple to make, delicious and fun.
We actually went a step further with these cupcakes and make Cake Batter Cupcake Milkshakes. Toss a cupcake into the blender with vanilla ice cream, milk and blend well. Top with whip cream and sprinkles. Crazy good!
You may certainly buy the funfetti cake mix and follow the normal directions and just opt out of the sprinkles within the cake itself. I like adding my own sprinkles however because it is more colorful.
These cupcakes are really all about the Cake Batter Frosting. This stuff is seriously good and a really simple frosting to throw together. You are essentially making a basic buttercream and adding in yellow cake mix (from a box). The cake mix gives it just the right amount of cake flavoring.
When decorating cupcakes, I always use an extra large or large tip. Start in the center and work your way around and upwards for a really full and pretty decorated cupcake.
