Fun Neon Pink Surprise Yellow Cupcakes
Sometimes I get in a hurry and don’t have time to make my frosting or cupcakes from scratch. You know how it is….life gets in the way. Kids get sick. Dad needs attention. Whatever! One day I had to go shopping for something quick. OMG! I love rainbow colors or funfetti. The first time I saw funfetti, it was a happy birthday ice cream. Next I started seeing it on bakery cakes at the supermarkets. Fun Neon Pink Surprise Yellow Cupcakes recipe is really easy for busy moms or dads.
While shopping, I found Pillsbury has Funfetti vanilla frosting. It comes in all colors. they have it in aqua blue, bold purple, hot pink, vibrant green, orange all star, and vanilla marshmallow just to name a few. If you can’t find the neon pink and the neon yellow colors, there are so many bright colored frostings….it’s hard to decide.
You don’t need a special piping disposable bag or tip with these cakes. Once baked…just cut out a hole in the center (cut a circle out of the center & trim it like a lid) & fill it slightly with edible candies. If you mess up the cake & can’t cover it back with cake. Just fill the hole up with more icing. Kids will love it. Even grown-ups.
If you can’t find Pillsbury Neon cupcake mix or the frosting, you know…..you could get a can of vanilla frosting and add food coloring. Wilton has a Neon Gel Food Color Set for cake batters and icings.
