My daughter and granddaughter shared a yummy and darling Funfetti Valentine cupcake recipe with me.

This recipe is super simple using a few extra ingredients to make the cupcakes so yummy!

My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter was in heaven! Feeling like such a big girl helping her mom bake cupcakes.

The ingredients for Funfetti cupcakes

Pillsbury pink Funfetti cake mix

1 box vanilla pudding

4 eggs

1 C sour cream

1/2 C oil

1/2 C water

Mix the ingredients in a large bowl

This is such a fun way to involve your kids or grandkids in the kitchen. I taught cooking classes for kids before covid and it was so much fun!

Harper loves helping her mom mix the batter. Starting to teach kids early on helps them develop great cooking skills for later in life.

Place all your cupcake liners in the cupcake pans.

This is fun for little hands to do 🙂

Fill each cupcake liner with batter about 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until done.

Tip- My daughter sprays the top of the cupcakes with some non stick spray like pam before she bakes them.

This will make it easier to get the Funfetti cupcakes out of the pan.

Pink Funfetti frosting recipe for cupcakes

Emily found a “cheater” way to make pink frosting!

Ingredients are

1 can of Pink Funfetti frosting,

3 C powdered sugar,

1 tsp Vanilla,

1-2 tsp milk or cream

1/2 to 1 cup butter softened (play with the butter to get the frosting how you want it)

Combine all ingredients into the bowl of a kitchen aid mixer.

Start slow until combined and then beat until light and fluffy.

Encourage your little ones to help but make sure they know not to run the mixer by themselves.

I think Harper loves the frosting haha.

If you don’t like the pink frosting here is a delicious chocolate frosting that is to die for!

Of course you must make time for the kids to lick the beaters.

Frost and decorate the cupcakes.

Emily used red sprinkles and red Swedish fish hearts finish off your Funfetti Cupcakes.

Enjoy your delicious pink Funfetti Valentine cupcakes.

I also have some heart shaped patchwork Valentine heart sugar cookies on my blog.

Harper LOVED her cupcakes hehehe
