For the cupcakes
1 cup sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled (approx. ½ cup)
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup sour cream
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
Pinch salt (about ½ tsp)
½ cup milk
½ cup multicolored sprinkles
For the decorations
1 stick unsalted butter (about ½ cup), softened
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
2-3 tbsp milk
3 tbsps multicolored sprinkles
12-15 rainbow candy strips, cut into 3 inch pieces
Yields: 12 to 15 cupcakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a muffin tin with paper liners and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together sugar and egg.
Add melted butter, vanilla and sour cream. Mix until all ingredients are well-incorporated.
In a separate bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients: flour, baking powder + soda and salt.
Slowly mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients, alternating with the milk. Mix with a spatula until all ingredients are well-incorporated, forming a cupcake batter.
Gently fold sprinkles into the batter.
Fill the lined muffin tin with cupcake batter, about 2/3 of the way.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before decorating.
In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together the softened butter, confectioners’ sugar and milk. The buttercream is ready once everything is smooth and forms semi-stiff peaks.
Gently fold sprinkles into buttercream.
Scoop the buttercream into a piping bag, with Wilton tip #12 attached. Frost each cupcake.
Add a rainbow candy strip on each cupcake, arching it on top to give it a “rainbow” look. Serve and enjoy.
