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 on these Confetti Cupcakes, 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!

How to make Confetti Cupcakes

After baking your favorite cupcake recipe (I highly suggest either this vanilla cupcake or this chocolate cupcake recipe), let your cupcakes cool on a cooling rack.

When your cupcakes are cool, using an apple corer or a paring knife, cut roughly a one inch piece of cupcake out. Place to the side.

Fill the empty space in your cupcake with your favorite sprinkles or candies. Put the piece of cupcake right back over the candies.

You may need to trim the cupcake piece slightly to have it fit snug and flush with the rest of the cupcake.

Now you can frost your cupcakes with your favorite frosting recipe! If you are a chocolate fan, be sure to use my chocolate frosting recipe!

It’s so fun to see your friends and family’s faces when they take that first bite into these Cupcakes!
