birthday cupcakes

TODAY IS KELSEY’S BIRTHDAY! What better way to celebrate than with slightly tacky but oh-so-pretty Funfetti cupcakes with butter cream frosting, multi-colored sprinkles and heart-shaped gummies?! (If there’s one thing you should know about our beloved Kelsey, it’s that she loves gummy candies. Especially these. And these.) I used store-bought Funfetti mix for the cakes and decorated with canned butter cream frosting, which I tinted various shades of pink and purple and piped into little rosettes. (Click here for a rose piping tutorial.) I love how they look arranged all together on a cake stand. They may not be gourmet, but these tasty little cakes will get gobbled up nonetheless.
