This weekend my wonderful niece Lena came and stayed with me in Boston. On her other visits we’ve baked together and it’s been really fun, so among the things I had planned, I promised we would bake again.
It was hard to decide what to do but we settled on Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes to celebrate spring (while it’s been cold this weekend, it’s sure starting to look like spring, and I am very hopeful about warmer weather soon).
She’s 5’1” now, and in middle school, soon enough she’ll be taller than me. In all seriousness, she’s the coolest 12 year old I know.
Funfetti cake out of the box used to me my go-to thing to bake, especially when I was in college. To make our cupcakes we followed a vanilla cupcake recipe I have and just added spring sprinkles in the batter.

The batter was looking great and tasted just right… now the frosting, that was a whole other (sad) story.
