Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes With ButterCream Frosting Recipe

homemade funfetti cupcakes with buttercream frosting

Yesterday I decided to make funfetti cupcakes from scratch. I’ve made recipes for homemade cupcakes before but never funfetti cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting. They turned out so good and were super easy to make. The recipe doesn’t require anything fancy and you probably already have all of these ingredients in your kitchen. I hope you enjoy as much as we did.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. Funfetti cake is my daughter and grandsons favorite. I am looking forward to a good buttercream frosting so can’t wait to try this. I SO appreciate you having a print button. So many blogs do not and I’ve had to copy the entire recipe then send it to me. You made life much easier as I just printed.
