Bridal Shower Vanilla Confetti Cupcakes

September 2nd, 2012 · 2 Comments · cupcake, Dessert, Easy

This summer has definitely been the summer of weddings  – and especially August with a wedding/wedding event every single weekend. Two of my good friends, Lauren and Jerrod, got married this weekend at our family acreage. It was definitely a special wedding! For Lauren’s bridal shower, I was assigned to cupcake duty and chose to make Lauren’s favourite flavour: Vanilla Confetti Cupcakes. These little babies are cute to the sight and delightful to the taste with bold, rich vanilla flavours, so let’s get to the recipe!

Saucy Sprinkles Box Cake Mix with a Twist:

  • 1 Vanilla Box Cake
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 Melted Butter
  • 2 tsp Mexican Vanilla

Scoop into a lined cupcake tin. Bake for the time suggested on the box and let cool before frosting.

Vanilla Confetti Cupcake Icing

  • 1 cup Butter (room temperature)
  • 3-4 cups Icing Sugar
  • 1/4 cup  Whipping Cream
  • 2 tsp Mexican Vanilla
  • Beans from one whole Vanilla Bean

Mix all together until smooth & fluffy. If it’s too runny, add in a bit more icing sugar. If it’s too thick, add in more whipping cream. The secret to this icing is to let it sit over night, which allows the vanilla beans to really infuse the icing and make the flavour POP.

Once the icing has sat overnight, let it warm up to room temperature, give it another good whip and pipe onto the cupcakes using a Wilton 1M tip. Sprinkle with any type of confetti, rainbow colored sprinkles and serve to a beautiful bride to be!
