Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes

Growing up I loved the Funfetti cake…I think we all did. I found this recipe to make the same thing but it doesn’t come out of a box. it was so easy my niece Maija helped out.


It’s basically just a simple cupcake recipe with all the basic ingredients…butter, flour, sugar, baking powder, vanilla, eggs, and milk.


Then come the sprinkles.



I made the cupcakes minis and frosted them with a basic buttercream frosting. Maija chose purple and Blue for the frosting.




(I doubles this recipe to male more. This recipe makes roughly 12 cupcakes)

1/2 Cups Butter
1 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Tbls. Vanilla
1 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/3 Cup Milk
1/3 Cup Sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350

Cream butter and sugar. Mix in eggs and vanilla. Mix in baking powder. Mix in about half the flour then add in half of the milk then mix in the rest of the flour them the rest of milk. Mix in the sprinkles.

Pour batter into the cupcake tin and bake for 18-20 minutes. Cool then frost.

How Sweet It Is


Spaghetti Eis

So I felt this is something I should share. I remember in German 1 talking about this with frau Speiker but I always wondered if it was actually real
Or not and if Germans actually eat it. So spaghetti eis is not spaghetti flavored ice cream. It’s just ice cream that looks like spaghetti.

It starts with whipped cream on the bottom (why? I don’t know but it’s the best part because the ice cream freezes it) then it’s lemon ice cream squeezed out to look like noodles. It’s then topped with strawberry sauce and some white chocolate shavings to look like cheese. It’s super delicious.
