girly cupcakes

I can't say exactly why, but I never really bought into the whole cupcake fad. I must admit, I can be pretty picky when it comes to frosting. And truth be told, I don't like things that look too perfect, so a piped-on pile of confectionery goo just doesn't do it for me. And of course, as soon as anything becomes too mainstream I immediately develop a distaste for it (I guess it's just the hipster in me.) This weekend though, on a whim, my sister and I decided to whip up a batch. But not just any cupcakes: we were determined to make the most girly cupcakes possible. How do you do that, you ask?

First, make them mini. Anything little is automatically more feminine. Use adorable paper liners that could easily be mistaken for the finest of stationary.  As for the recipe? Funfetti... obviously. But be sure to use Rainbow Chip frosting. You can't beat Rainbow Chip frosting... unless you add pink food coloring (of course.) 

While the cupcakes are in the oven, do facials and manicures. After the cupcakes have cooled, and your nails have dried, blast Taylor Swift songs and sing along as you give each one a haphazard swirl of frosting on top. The smudgier the better. Finish with bright, sparkly sprinkles and edible glitter. 
Note: a sister isn't required, but she makes everything more fun. 


  1. These look awesome! I'm picky about my frosting, too. :)

  2. The hearts look flawless! I am in dire need of a girly cupcake and wine day. Just bring on the cosmo magazines, nail polish, cupcakes, and girly tunes! Sounds like such a fun day for you two

  3. Yummy! Now I'm craving cupcakes...
