Hey! I'm Taryn. Welcome to my blog. I cant wait to help you sprinkle a little fun into your kitchen with Semi-Homemade desserts, meals, and snacks!
I was a huge Barbie fan growing up, so I cannot wait for the upcoming movie! These are two-tone pink cupcakes topped with pink frosting, and a Barbie-inspired sprinkle mix. They are so fun to make, and they’d be perfect for birthday parties!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and fill a cupcake pan with parchment liners.
In a medium bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, water, oil, and eggs. Separate the batter into two bowls. In the first bowl, add a few drops of food coloring so that it turns a light shade of pink. In the second bowl, add double the amount of pink so that it’s darker.
Using a small cookie scoop, add the darker pink batter into the liners, filling them about 1/3 of the way. Top with the lighter pink batter so that they’re 2/3 full. Swirl if desired. Bake according to the package directions and let them cool completely.
In a mixing bowl, beat the butter until smooth. Add in half of the powdered sugar and mix. Add in the rest of the sugar, the cream, vanilla, and food coloring to create a light pink shade.
Put 2/3 of the frosting in a piping bag with a round tip. Add the rest of the frosting to a piping bag with a 1M tip.
Place the sprinkles into a shallow bowl and remove the larger balls and wafer pieces. Set them aside in another container.
Pipe a dollop of frosting with the open tip onto each cupcake. Roll each cupcake in sprinkles. Pipe a swirl of frosting onto the top of each sprinkle cupcake and then add in the larger pieces.
