I just had one of those “aha” moments, mixed with a nice combo of “are you losing your memory how did you not already blog about this”. About a week back, after much rescheduling and quick moving plan changing due to my friend Irene, I finally got the chance to make cupcakes for the birthday girl! About a month before she had kindly requested Funfetti Cupcakes with Chocolate Funfetti Frosting. I love it when people request their birthday treat because it saves me from trying to think up something uber special and inevitably failing because my sweet tooth is weirder than others.
Birthday girl came over and vegged on the couch, watching the beginning of the William and Kate Hallmark Movie (because they obviously NEEDED to make another one after the Lifetime one), while I got down to business. I was certain that this was going to be easy as can be and I would just make the same scrumptious Funfetti Cupcakes that I made for Lisa back in June for her birthday. Nope Jessica, you were wrong. I forgot to get the yogurt that goes into these cupcakes so, I took another fabulous cupcake recipe, made some easy tweaks and created a different Funfetti Cupcake recipe. I shall call it Funfetti Cupcake Take 2! Lucky for you, its just as easy IF NOT EASIER, than the Lisa Recipe and it is just as healthified, if not more. You will see my secret ingredient below :)
