Vanilla Sprinkle Cupcakes


I was asked to make some cupcakes for a luncheon right after Easter. Whilst I was super tempted to make something smothered in Easter Eggs (because chocolate!!!!), I realised people may be sick of chocolate (shocking I know!). So, instead I opted for these super cute Vanilla Sprinkle Cupcakes. With the pastel colours in the meringues, these are a cute alternative to Easter cupcakes but are super cute for any occasion!

Vanilla Sprinkle Cupcakes:

(Makes approx 18 Cupcakes)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line a muffin tray with cases.
  2. Mix the butter with the dry ingredients until it becomes a sandy consistency.
  3. Add half the milk until just combined.
  4. Then mix the remaining milk, eggs and vanilla and add to the mix.
  5. Add the sprinkles and mix until combined.
  6. Pour into your cupcakes cases and bake for approx 20 mins.

Vanilla Buttercream:



  1. Beat your butter either in a mixer or with a hand mixer until light and fluffy (at least 3mins).
  2. Add half the icing sugar and beat on a low speed until combined.
  3. Add the remaining icing sugar on a low speed and once combined increase to a high speed. Beat for at least 5mins (The longer you beat the icing the lighter and creamier it will be – you really can’t over do it here ☺️).
  4. Pipe onto your cooled cupcakes using a star nozzle.

Now you have some beautiful vanilla sprinkle cupcakes which you can leave as is. However, if you want some extra pizzazz, try adding some Rainbow Glitter Meringues.
