As much as I love food coloring, it's nice to have some St. Patrick's Day desserts that aren't green from head to toe. This Funfetti cupcake looks like your average sweet on the outside. But one bite and you've got green, luscious frosting oozing from the middle. St. Patrick's Day has never looked so good.
What made these so fun is the addition of the sprinkles to the batter. It added just one more fun surprise element to the cake batter.
Once you mix in the sprinkles, you pour the cupcake batter into liners and bake. It's much easier to fill the cupcakes once they are baked.
While the cupcakes bake, you can prepare the filling. For this, I simply used homemade white buttercream. You can use store-bought, but I'm obsessed with rich buttercream so that totally makes a difference. To get a beautiful green color, simply mix in green food dye until you get the right color.
Now, the best part! When filling, you simply scoop out a small cone hole in the center of the cupcake. Put your frosting into a pastry bag and pipe it into the center of the cupcake. You can put the cone top over the batter but I just left it like this.
Once the cupcakes have been filled, you simply frost them with the remaining white buttercream. If you want a lot of green for your kids or something, definitely tint this green. I loved the contrast of the white and green so I left the top white.
Decorating time! I really had no idea what I was doing with these so I just lined the rim of the tops with green chocolate chips and added some Funfetti sprinkles. You can honestly do whatever your little heart desires with these.
