Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes by Brown Eyed Baker – Pin of the Week

Hi, I'm Stef! Welcome to my kitchen, home to over 1000 recipes! Join me on my quest to push baking boundaries and live creatively both in and out of the kitchen.
Happy exploring!

Funfetti Cupcakes

This week’s Pin of the Week chosen by Pinterest Explorer Rebecca Hubbell is homemade funfetti cupcakes from Brown Eyed Baker.  Although I don’t have brown eyes (mine are green and blue with huge dark black pupils), Michelle, the blog’s author, and I have a lot in common.  We both started blogging in 2007 and we both love from-scratch baking.

Michelle talks in her blog post about how she’d never heard of funfetti until she started reading food blogs.  I was the same way!  I’ve still never tried the box mix version that I link to here, and I’m only sharing the link with you in case you’re not familiar with funfetti.  You don’t need to buy the mix.  Follow Michelle’s simple recipe and make your own!

To make the funfetti even more homemade, you can also try making the sprinkles from scratch.  Extreme?  Yes!  Awesome?  Completely!

If you are a funfetti fan, you also might consider trying funfetti taffy.  It’s a great rainy day project.

This Week’s Outstanding Explorer

Rebecca Hubbell

This week’s Outstanding Explorer is Rebecca Hubbell.  Rebecca is a legal assistant by day and she writes the lifestyle blog Living Better Together.  Her food posts are fantastic (more on that subject in a bit).  I’m even more impressed with her crafty projects – crafting is not my forte.

Look at this fun pallet sign that she created with a play on Maine’s abbreviation (ME).

Some of Rebecca’s do-not-miss food posts include her monster cookie ice cream cupcakes, Reese’s Puff Donuts, and her mini blueberry mascarpone cheesecakes.

Rebecca used to hate cake:  “It wasn’t until after I graduated high school that I started to like it… what the heck was wrong with me!?”  It’s so funny how our tastes change.

Congrats, Rebecca, and thanks for your great pins!

  1. I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve never had a funfetti cake. My daughter loves them and would rave about it when they would make them in college. In fact I read a post a few minutes ago on the cakes, it must be funfetti week! Now I’m intrigued, I’ll have to run over and check Browned Eyed Bakers recipe.

    Wow that taffy looks amazing!!! I am totally going to try it. Love your blog!! It’s making me hungry. :)

    In browneyedgirl’s funfetti cupcake recipe the instructions say to mix for 2 minutes once everything is combined. Box mixes also have you mix for several minutes once all ingredients are combined. However, I just read an article on your blog on how you should only mix the batter until just combined. Can you explain the differences?
