Confetti Cupcake Recipe

Confetti cupcake

I have been baking today, simply because I needed something sweet and sugary. I ended up with a batch of light chocolate cupcakes with a white meringue frosting on top. It is a really good flavour combination those two.

If you are looking for a 100% white frosting, the white meringue frosting is a really good choice. The white meringue frosting holds up really well too. I had a couple of left overs and after a couple of hours they still looked nice. The only thing is that the frosting will crust over time, but it still taste good.

To dress them up, I used some bright and colorful sprinkles to give the final touch. Simple and classic! The reason why I call them light chocolate cupcakes is because they have a light chocolate (cocoa) flavour and my kids loves them.

    dina: I have added it in the post what tip I have used, but I’ll write it here to. Its an 11mm star tip. I think that you can find one similar from Ateco or Wilton.

    Tracy: I have used caster sugar, not powdered or icing.

    Elizabeth & Tami: I have made a note about putting together a post about my photos. But it will not be before we are closer to spring and theres more light outside.

    Elny: I think that you can keep them for 1 day, not more.

    Hi Louise,
    I have been a big fan of your website for about two years now. I actually found it whilst searching for giant cupcakes with Tinkerbell on them, for my 21st birthday. This year I am hoping to move to a new house and hopefully get my own kitchen! It will be nice to experiment with your recipies without my mother looking over my shoulder all the time. I really really admire your work and as a totally ameteur baker (I used to make pretty good Victoria Sandwich cakes, now I’m all cupcakes!) can I say your tutorials and ideas are totally inspired. And they’re really easy too! Who’d have ever thought that for christmas this year I’d be asking for a leaf -veiner and a proper mixing bowl!?! But all I can say is THANK YOU a million times. Beacause of your site, I have started my own cake blog thing that will just be me and a bunch of cakes that I made (or destroyed!). Thank you so much Louise, you give me hope that the world can be saved – WITH CUPCAKES!!! XXX

    The frosting looks fantastic and sounds even greater. I will definitely try that out some day. Happy new year, Louise.
