We are going to show you how to make funfetti cupcakes in minutes. This super easy idea is a breeze to make. Let the kids help and create lots of memories!

Do your kids love funfetti cake and cupcakes just as much as mine?
Well my kids were asking for sprinkle cupcakes the other day and I didn’t have any in my pantry. What is a mom to do?
Make your own of course. It is SO easy!
In fact, it was a bit TOO easy that is almost seems ridiculous to even post this. Keep reading to see how easy this really is!
Homemade funfetti cupcakes ingredients:
- 1 Cake Mix
- 1/8 cup of sprinkles – any kind will do. The bigger sprinkles will do better but just use what you have.
Just 2 ingredients! It is SO easy!
How to make funfetti cupcakes:
Mix the cake mix (vanilla is best) according to directions.
Once Combined, fold in the sprinkles. Do not over mix, because then you will end up with rainbow swirls instead of sprinkles.
This is probably one of the easiest ways to get the Mom award from your kids. 😉 My kids were in awe!!
They thought it was pretty awesome that everyone could still enjoy a funfetti cake even though we were out. Just make your own and enjoy!
Save time and use a cookie scoop! The larger size is perfect for scooping the cupcake batter into the tins.
I have a set of stainless steel cookie scoops that I love and they make baking so much easier. You can order a set here.
They really are a time saver. If you love baking, I recommend that you keep these in your kitchen.
I don’t even consider myself a baker and I use them all the time. I use the largest size to scoop the cupcake batter and it makes it so easy.
The smaller scoop I use for cookies and to make meatballs. You will definitely get your money worth out of these little scoops.
It is really important to not overfill the cupcake liners. You don’t want them to overflow!
I like to use a disposable decorator bag. It makes the cleanup a breeze and the cupcakes turn out so pretty.
Make sure you have a good muffin tin to bake the cupcakes in. If you buy a good set, they will last forever.
We also like these silicone muffin pans. They are just so easy to use because of the silicone.
Also, you certainly can use a hand mixer but we love our stand mixer. It gets a ton of use and to this day is such a good investment.
We bake a lot so it is so handy and we love our mixer.
Stock up when cake mixes go on sale!
I like to buy several cake mixes when I spot a good sale at the grocery store. We tend to have lots of last minute baking needs and having this in the pantry means it not a problem!
It seems we always need to bring some sort of baked good to this event or that function. Since you don’t need many ingredients, they are so easy to mix up on the spur of the moment.
We can easily make these to take to a get together or event on a moments notice. The kids have even had a bunch of friends over and we made these quickly.
I love saving money and giving my family treats to enjoy. It is a win all around.
