Firecracker cupcakes July 5, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — mdebaugh @ 4:16 am

Happy Fourth of July!! I was very patriotic today, wearing red, white and blue all day. I felt that the patriotism needed to continue so I decided to make confetti cupcakes. I attempted to make the frosting fire cracker looking, as seen above, but it took longer than I expected so not all the cupcakes look like that. Anyway, this was a fun recipe for the holiday.


1 package white cake mix with pudding

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups whole milk

1/2 cup veggie oil

3 large eggs

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

red and blue sprinkles


1 stick butter

3 cups confectioners’ sugar

3-4 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1. place rack in center of oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line or grease cup cake pans

2. place cake mix, flour, milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla in bowl. Mix on low speed for 30 seconds. Stop scrape down sides of bowl. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Add desired amount of sprinkles and stir in. pour about 1/4 cup of batter into cupcake pans bake for about 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes on wire rack, take out of pans and let cool about 15 minutes then frost.


1. Place room temperature butter in bowl and mix until light and fluffy, about 30 seconds. Add confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla. Blend on low speed  for 1 minute. Increase speed to medium and blend for another minute.
