White Chocolate Confetti Cupcake

Got a kids birthday party coming up or just want a simple but playful cupcake?  This confetti cupcake is perfect!  Sure, you can get a cake mix that already has sprinkles added to the mix, but your guests will be able to tell before they even bite into your cupcake treat and the jig will be up. So really it's best to fake it to get some praise for your treat.  For my White Chocolate Confetti Cupcake you'll need...
  • White Cake Mix (plus ingredients to make the cake...usually eggs, oil, and water - but we're replacing the water with Milk)
  • Milk (to replace the water)
  • 4 ounces of White Chocolate (melted)
  • 2/3 Cup Confetti Sprinkles plus more for garnish if you'd like (I used the star shaped sprinkle) 
  • Store Bought Vanilla Icing
  • Butter (room temperate...around 1/2 cup....but it's up to you)
  • Icing Sugar (optional)
  • Garnish Ideas: Sprinkles or fun shaped candles
Here's the recipe...

Step 1: Sort of follow the directions on your White Cake Mix. Start by preheating your oven and add the oil and eggs...but DO NOT add the water.Replace all of the water your cake mix calls for with Milk.  Mix the ingredients together until it is smooth.

Step 2: Melt down the 4 ounces of White Chocolate and be careful not to overheat or burn the chocolate.You may want to use a double boiler instead of your microwave to melt white chocolate.  Mix the melted chocolate into your batter until fully incorporated.

Step 3: Now, that your batter is nice and smooth, stir in 2/3 cup of your Confetti Sprinkles.  It's best to use the chalky textured ones because the colour doesn't bleed into the batter.

Step 4: Spoon the batter into your cupcake liners and bake as directed on the package.  Once they are done baking, let them cool completely.

Step 5: On to the icing! For the simple, but yummy, vanilla icing simply mix together the vanilla icing and butter on high until smooth.  Mix well and add some icing sugar if it's not sweet enough for you or too buttery. Top your cupcake with the icing using any method you like and to garnish you can use more sprinkles or maybe top it with a fun shaped candle.

Happy Faking!
