Let’s have some more cupcakes, shall we!
These are quite possibly the cutest things I have ever made.
They smell so delicious and they are so adorable!
Sprinkles are awesome on their own… and then when they’re put inside cupcake batter? Fabulous!
I love the little pops of color that are “sprinkled” throughout the cupcake.

Makes 12 cupcakes
1/2 butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp vanilla
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sprinkles
Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare your muffin tin with cupcake liners.
Cream together butter and sugar in a bowl and then add the eggs (one at a time, beating after each addition).
Combine milk and vanilla in a separate small bowl (or the measuring cup you used to measure the milk)
In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour and baking powder).
Alternate adding half of each of the milk/vanilla mixture and dry ingredients to the butter/egg batter, stirring in between to combine. Be careful not to over mix.
Stir in sprinkles!
Bake for 25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack.
Once cool, frost with your favorite vanilla frosting (I suggest buttercream) and top with more sprinkles.
