Confetti Surprise Cupcakes
As much as I love baking, it is not my strong suit by any means. I always said that one of my goals was to be able to decorate baked goods to look presentable.
I’ve been practicing, can you tell?
I made these pretty vanilla cupcakes for my daughter to celebrate her dance recital last month. And guess what? They have a little surprise in them!
They’re filled to the brim with these fun candy pieces! I used my favorite vanilla cupcake recipe, used an apple corer to remove the center, filled up the center with candy and then put the top back on before frosting! See, easy!
I used Celebration by Frey’s™ Mixlicious candies because they are perfect for people just like me — those who are creatively challenged. The new MixLicious™ combines creative color palettes of Sixlets®, Pearls™ and Gumballs!
Celebration by Frey™ strives to be a creative, colorful candy brand that inspires to bring a unique experience to parties! Taking advantage of the do-it-yourself decorating and party planning trend, the Celebration by Frey™ line offers on-trend colors so that consumers can create one-of-a-kind birthdays, weddings, showers, anniversaries and more!
Confetti Surprise Cupcakes
Simple vanilla cupcakes with a surprise in the middle - assorted candies!
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 1/2 sticks butter, unsalted room temperature
- 1 1/2 cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 4.6 oz container of Celebration by Frey Mixlicious
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line cupcake tin with liners
In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time.
Alternate adding flour mixture and milk into the wet ingredients.
Don't forget to scrape the sides of the bowl.
Fill each cupcake liner about 3/4's full.
Bake until a toothpick comes out clean through the center of a cupcake, about 20 minutes.
Let cool for about 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling.
When cool, using an apple corer remove the center of each cupcake, careful not to go through to the bottom and be sure to save the tops.
Fill each cupcake with Mixlicious candies and put the tops back on the cupcakes.
What’s fun about this recipe is that you can use it for really any occasion! I would love to make them for a friend’s gender reveal.
