For me, summer isn’t complete without ice cream.  Lots and lots of ice cream!  However, since I’m kinda obsessed with cupcakes I figured why not combine the two and make Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes!

I’ve had a cupcake cone baking rack sitting in my closet for a couple years now and just never got around to using it.

#SummerDessertWeek was the perfect reason to combine my love ice cream and cupcakes and use the rack!

My Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes are super simple to make because I combine store ready and homemade.

To me, just because I use a box mix doesn’t make my dessert any less amazing or homemade!  I just think of it as a time and sanity saving measure!

At first, my kids didn’t think these were actually make of cake and frosting, they thought they were real ice cream cones!

It wasn’t until I turned the cones sideways and showed them they didn’t fall apart that they believed me!

Chocolate Funfetti Cupcakes

Celebrate your next birthday with these delicious, colorful Chocolate Funfetti Cupcakes!  Full of rainbow jimmies and topped with whipped chocolate frosting and rainbow sprinkles, these fun treats are sure to make any birthday great!

Chocolate Funfetti Cupcakes | JavaCupcake.com

Since I already made Matty an awesome Toy Story themed checkerborad birthday cake and Alien cupcakes, I wanted to make something a little simpler for his actual birthday.   Last year, I made stacked, funetti cookies filled with buttercream for his actually birthday… so this year I decided to go on the same theme and make funfetti cupcakes!

Chocolate Funfetti Cupcakes | JavaCupcake.com

These little cups of cake are filled with rainbow jimmies, topped with a simply delicious whipped chocolate buttercream and decorated with rainbow sprinkles! I thought originally about making a vanilla buttercream to top the funfetti cupcakes, but I decided I wanted to add a little more flavor to the mix and knew that the chocolate would be perfect! I could still dress up the frosting with lots of fun rainbow sprinkles!

The batter was so super easy to make.  The recipe for the cake comes from one of my favorite baking blogs, Sally’s Baking Addiction.   What drew me to this recipe was the fact that there was no need for a stand mixer to make the batter.  I’m all about homemade that doesn’t require creaming the butter and sugar and getting my stand mixer all messy!  (Although, I’m still going to have to use it for the frosting!) Sally’s recipe is simple and so easy to put together… and the batter, I could eat it by the spoonful!

I think this recipe may actually turn out to be my “go-to” vanilla recipe.  It’s so simple and so good!  Next time I might even add a little vanilla bean to the batter punch up the vanilla flavor.  Or maybe even use almond flavoring for something different.   This recipe would even be great with fresh fruit in the batter or added to the middle of the cupcakes after baking.  The possibles are endless with this recipe! Thanks, Sally, for another great recipe!

So, if you’re in need of an easy, super delicious and really fun cupcake… these Chocolate Funfetti Cupcakes are for you!

Interested in these awesome liners?  They’re from my favorite party supply shop, Sweets & Treats Boutique! They are grease-proof which means the color will stay bright, bold and beautiful after baking!  Don’t these look wonderful?

Happy Baking!

Chocolate Funfetti Cupcakes

Yield: 3+ dozen cupcakes

Ingredients

Funfetti Cupcakes

  • 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1 cup rainbow jimmies

Whipped Chocolate Buttercream

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2lbs powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 3/4-1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Rainbow sprinkles

Instructions

Funfetti Cupcakes

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. In a large, glass bowl, melt the butter in your microwave.
  3. While it's melting, in another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. Once the butter has melted, add the sugar and whisk until combined. Set aside for 2-3 minutes or until slightly cooled.
  5. Add the sour cream and whisk together until smooth.
  6. Pour in the milk and vanilla and whisk until combined and smooth.
  7. Add the eggs and whisk until completely incorporated.
  8. Add the flour and fold with a spatula until just combined. Switch to a whisk and stir quickly 7-8 times to break up most of the clumps. There will still be clumps in the batter, but do not over mix.
  9. Pour in the rainbow jimmies and GENTLY fold 4-5 times until combined. You don't want to overwork the batter with the jimmies... the color will run off the jimmies into the batter if you do.
  10. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full and bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  11. Cool completely before frosting.

Whipped Chocolate Buttercream

  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream the butter until smooth.
  2. Add half the sugar and mix on high until combined.
  3. Mix in 1/4 cup heavy cream, salt and vanilla.
  4. Add remaining sugar and beat until incorporated.
  5. Add up to 3/4 cup more heavy cream until you reach your desired consistency. I like a light, smooth, airy buttercream, so I added all the whipping cream.
  6. Beat on high for 2 minutes until light and fluffy and the color has lightened.

Assembly

  1. Using a Wilton 1M piping tip, pipe swirls of frosting onto each cooled cupcake.
  2. Garnish the frosting generously with rainbow sprinkles on all sides.

Yesterday was my son’s 1st birthday party and I’ve been super preoccupied with getting his Sesame Street cupcakes and all the food ready for that!  So… this morning, Easter, I knew I had to whip up something easy, but super cute for the party we are headed to this afternoon.  Luckily, my husband stepped up and offered to make them for me… and so here we have Dave’s Funfetti Peeps Cupcakes!

Mr. JavaCupcake

Since this was a last minute endeavor he used a box mix and doctored it up with sprinkles, homemade frosting and some super cute Peeps on top!  (I helped just a little bit with the frosting.  hehe)

From start to finish I think it took my husband about 90 minutes to make… super easy and sure to be loved by everyone at the party today!

Happy Easter!

Rainbow Funfetti Birthday Cake Oreo Cupcakes

Being out here in Germany has its disadvantages.  As a baker, the lack of access to seasonal and special products that my favorite companies make is a huge disadvantage.  So when Oreo celebrated it’s 100th birthday with special confetti cake flavored Oreos I BEGGED my friends back home to send me some.  Luckily, one fantastic friend (CARRIE!) sent me TWO packages of these special cookies!

When I first opened the bag, I noticed the smell… they were different from the regular Oreos.  Then, I tasted them.  OH EM GEE.  They taste like birthday cake!  Those Oreo people are GENIUS!

So, into my cupcakes these cookies went.  I made a basic vanilla cupcake batter, added a birthday Oreo to the bottom of each cupcake and filled the batter with funfetti rainbow sprinkles.  I then topped the cupcake with a basic vanilla cream cheese buttercream topped with more funfetti rainbow sprinkles and a birthday Oreo!

Simple.  Cute.  Delicious.

Instructions

Rainbow Funfetti Cupcakes

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Line cupcake pan with liners.
  2. Separate egg whites and whisk together with milk and vanilla. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  4. Add the softened butter and half the milk mixture and mix on medium until combined.
  5. Pour in the remaining milk mixture and mix on high until combined, about 10-15 seconds. DO NOT OVER MIX! Scrape the sides of the bowl.
  6. Gently fold in the funfetti jimmies, 4-5 strokes.
  7. Place one Oreo at the bottom of each cupcake liner. Fill the liner 2/3 full with batter.
  8. Bake 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Allow to cool in pan for 4-5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.

Rainbow Cream Cheese Buttercream

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and cream cheese.
  2. Add the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time and mix on high until smooth.
  3. Add the vanilla and salt and mix until combined.

To make rainbow frosting:

  3. Slowly press the frosting out of the star tip. Be careful not to press too hard, you don't want the colors to mix too much and come out brown.

To Assemble:

  1. Pipe a swirl of rainbow frosting on top of each cooled cupcake.
  2. Garnish with rainbow jimmies and half a birthday Oreo.

PS… I was in a hurry and didn’t bring my eggs and milk to room temperature and didn’t bake them quite long enough, so my cupcakes didn’t rise like I wanted them to.  🙁 Bummer.  Make sure yours are room temperature and be patient!!
