StyleNIque Presents: Not Too Sweet Vanilla Cupcakes- Sprinkle Confetti On It

I’m I the only person that needs a mental break? The current climate can get a bit overwhelming for me especially when scrolling through social media, a place that used to be filled with bright, happy, pretty pictures have been replaced with a harsh reality. So what did I do, I decided to take a mental break from it all and do some baking. Baking is often a good distraction, and also brings me joy.

I had no idea how I wanted to decorate it so I simply piped buttercream on it but then I thought sprinkles make everything better, it not only adds a crunchy element it also adds color and brightness which always lightens my mood.

Below, I share the recipe for my not too sweet vanilla cupcake and American buttercream recipe. To see a video of the process of baking a cupcake click here. If you try to recreate this, tag me or send me a pic I will be delighted.

💭I stick to the classic cupcake with just buttercream
💭I enjoy some sprinkles on my cupcakes


Cupcakes are cooled and ready to be decorated! I used Wilton 1M tip nozzle to pipe the buttercream but any tip or spreader can work since we're not piping a design. 

Coat the entire surface with buttercream it will serve as a binding agent to the sprinkles.

Dip the cupcake in sprinkles and rotate all the sides until the buttercream is fully covered.

How pretty and colorful is this!
