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.

      I’m not sure if it will work?? I have not had great experience with all cupcake recipes turned into “cake” recipes.

    What is the difference between the Angel Feather Icing and the White Meringue frosting? which one tastes better???

    • Louise says

      The AF icing is a bit more like marshmallow fluff with a thick consistency. The WM is more airy and light. I like them both but the WM is super on chocolate cupcakes :-)

    (First comment ever) The second I saw these I had to make them even though it was past midnight!! I am not a chocolate cupcake fan and I’ve never had luck with meringue frosting BUT this was, by far, the most incredible tasting cupcake and frosting I have ever baked! The cupcake baked perfectly and the frosting whipped up nicely. I got rave reviews from the few people that tried them! Thank you for your blog and your recipes and thank you for being an inspiration to get in the kitchen and make something yummy!

    I made this cupcakes on Monday. I think they’re yummy, but… not the best :) A bitter taste of muffins is composing with sweet frosting, but i think muffins are too bitter. But they’re look great and delicious :)
    Sorry for mistakes :) Greetings from Wrocław, Poland!
