Baking cupcakes at home has spoiled us rotten, now none of the store bought ones match up and fall short of our quality and taste standards. Recently my sister ordered cupcakes from a local bakery for my niece’s birthday to give in her school. My niece didn’t even taste the cupcake 🙂 The cupcake was a little dry and the frosting was too greasy with no flavor.
So moral of the story is to either stop baking at home or stop buying from outside. Today I’ve homemade cupcakes that I made for my daughter’s 15th month birthday. After experimenting with a lot of recipes, I found my go-to recipe for vanilla cupcakes. This basic vegan vanilla cupcakes form the basis for a lot of variations. I’ve already posted the hazelnut-spice variation and today’s confetti candy cupcakes are also a yummy variation to those.
Idea for the Confetti candy cupcakes came from this cupcake book.
