Funfetti Nutella Cupcakes

Funfetti Nutella Cupcakes

I am the kind of person that when I like something…I will wear, eat, or make that thing forever.

The other day I was talking with a friend about clothing.  She informed me that I was a layers kind of girl.  I must have had a funny look on my face because she proceeded to say that I always have on 1-2 tank tops in different colors with a sweater and a necklace or earrings.  It is so true!  She completely described my all time go-to outfit.  Later on that day I realized that I have been crushing on the same things for the past year or two.  I guess it is safe to say that I know what I like.


Things I have been obsessing over for quite a while:

1. Ruffles
2. Cuff Bracelets
3.  Green Smoothies
4.  Cardigans and Tank Tops
5.  Zebra print
6.  Cupcakes
7.  Sprinkles and Glitter
8.  Shopping for Food Props
9.  Wearing different patterns together

Funfetti Nutella Cupcakes

A few weeks ago we had a dinner at our church and I volunteered to make dessert.  I know…shocker there :-)

I had a jar of Nutella and a few jars of half full sprinkles that needed used up.   (Nutella is one of those things I always keep on hand.) As I looked through the cupboard I found that I had one white cake mix left.  I love making semi-homemade desserts that don’t take a lot of time.  There are a few extra ingredients that can be mixed into cake mixes to give them a great homemade taste.

Even my desserts have layers in them.  Cupcakes with frosting that is layered with lots of sprinkles!  I took all my half full jars of pink sprinkles and made my own custom topping for these cute Funfetti Nutella Cupcakes.

The cupcakes were good, but the frosting…oh, my!  This frosting was so delicious!!!  I am in love with how fluffy and creamy the Nutella and whipping cream made this frosting.   When it was piped on, it looked like a chocolate soft serve cone!  You could seriously just eat the frosting with a spoon!

      I’m pretty sure that’s why I became a layers girl. Layers just help smooth out the rolls and the color distracts from the other rolls! Cupcakes and rolls…it’s bound to happen!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      No don’t die…then you won’t get the frosting. And you really really want to try this one…it was so good!!!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      Yes, extra tanks and camis for crack control is a much needed thing! hahaha! You do get the award for the funniest comment though!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      I like to win :-) Do I get a trophy? Or a ribbon or something cool like that to wear? Since I’m now a winner and all. Oh wait! You said the cupcakes were winners! Dang it! There goes my trophy!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      Amen to never tiring of Nutella! I just finished off the jar in our cupboards :-) The frosting is definitely the best part of these cupcakes. The cupcake was good, but oh! That frosting! Gives me shivers thinking about it!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      I think we could all use layers of cupcakes in our life. I wear a lot of black too, but usually with the bright tanks!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      I wish all I did was window shop for props. I am addicted to finding cute dishes at Goodwill…at least they are cheap!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      I think we all get comfortable in just a few things that we were over and over! I’m with you…lately my clothing money goes into props and chocolate!

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      Thanks Roxana! I completely agree…great minds :-) I can’t wait to check out your cupcakes and see how similar they are!! Can’t beat a Nutella cupcake!
