Sprinkles cupcakes. Well, ok, this is probably the easiest cupcake decorating technique around. Who even needs a tutorial on how to make sprinkles cupcakes? All you need is some buttercream and sprinkles and you can put the two together for instantly decorated cupcakes.
Well, that is if the decoration is all about dipping the top of cupcakes into sprinkles like this:
The most effective way of doing this is by dipping the top of buttercream coated cupcakes into a bowl filled with sprinkles and in doing that, turning the cupcakes around until the top is fully and evenly covered with sprinkles.
Having said that, my intention of writing this page is not just to share that one type of sprinkles decorated cupcakes. I have made a few other versions of these cupcakes and thought it would be good to put them all in one page.
Below are a few cupcake designs I have made using just buttercream and sprinkles. The sprinkles are not just used to decorate the cupcakes, some of them are used as filling and as part of the cake batter!
These are cupcakes with sprinkles inside and out. The recipe calls for addition of sprinkles into the cake batter and once baked, these cupcakes scream nothing but cheerfulness and fun. To add on to the fun and cheerfulness, the cupcakes are decorated with sprinkles and a buttercream frilly swirl.
These sprinkles filled cupcakes are simply awesome and super easy and super fast to make. Using a cupcake corer or just a jam knife, make a hole in the center of each cupcake. Fill the hole with sprinkles in the colors of your choice. Cover the top with buttercream and finish off the deco by sprinkling the top sparsely with the same sprinkles as the inside.
Serve the cupcakes and enjoy the reaction when people bite into one of these cupcakes!
These require a bit more work but are nevertheless very easy to make. Remove cupcakes from their casings. Each cupcake is layered into 3 and filled with buttercream and sprinkles. The layers are then returned to a new cupcake casing and covered in buttercream swirls and topped with the same sprinkles used in the filling.
There you go. Hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed putting it together. Happy sprinkling on cupcakes !! :)
