Funfetti Cupcakes

For the picnic, I wanted to bake something fun and colourful and reflective of my mood.

If you have been going through my bakes, you'll notice that I hardly ever use artificial colourings, my cakes are usually muted shades of brown and cream
well, this time I made an exception
I can't help it! This circus-inspired colour spots brought out the inner clown in me....

Basic White Cake

6 oz unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 cups cake flour, sifted
1 tbsp baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
 4 egg whites
to turn it into a Funfetti cupcake, just add
1 cup of your favourite sprinkles
