It's Cake Time!: Fireworks (Funfetti) Cupcakes

To celebrate Guy Fawkes Night, I made "fireworks" cupcakes using the Funfetti Udita brought over for me a few months ago* (*to be honest, it was all a bit of coincidence and I had no intention of making these multi-colored treats in celebration of anything.  Truth was, I woke from my three-hour nap yesterday afternoon in desperate need of a cake fix and looked up my favorite chocolate cake recipe.  Deeming the recipe a bit too involved, I decided to rummage the shelves and fridge for a different sweet fix, but to no avail - until I discovered the box of Funfetti at the back.  In fact, I'd never even heard of Funfetti until Mel mentioned it in a comment on this blog a few months agoI was a little disappointed to find out it was simply pre-packaged cake mix with sprinkles inside.  Oh well, cake is cake).

So there you have it.  They're quite tasty, except some unlucky person will have the eggshell cupcake because in my bleary-eyed, post-nap state, I was a bit clumsy with the egg cracking.  Sorry.


  1. Oh no! Sorry to disappoint - funfetti definitely has a cult following, but it's not a unique cake flavor unto itself. It never fails to delight me, especially when they have holiday-themed funfetti in stores. (I just made Halloween cupcakes with orange/black.) ;)

  2. Oh no, Mel, I didn't mean that I was ungrateful for your recommendation! The cakes are very tasty and they are fun! There's nothing like them here in the UK so I thought it was definitely clever - I think I had just built them up too much!
