IMG_2568

The Seahawks made it to the Superbowl for the 2nd year in a row and everyone in my house is sooo excited. Ive been wanting to make cupcakes so I knew this was the perfect occasion to try this new semi homemade recipe. This recipe is super simple and super delicious. My husband is not a sweets person (except cookies) and he really liked these cupcakes and kept going back for more. You can top these with any frosting that you like, but I was going for simple so I went with an easy buttercream. Enjoy!!

Birthday Funfetti Sprinkle Pancakes from Scratch

For my daughters 4th birthday I wanted to make her birthday breakfast extra special. What is more special then pancakes loaded with sprinkles to look like Funfetti Cake with an icing topping?! In a four year olds eye, or whatever your child’s age, nothing!! Her face lit up when I delivered these delicious sprinkled pancakes with candles to her at the table.

You can leave the sprinkles out of this recipe for a delicious classic buttermilk pancake recipe.

This recipe doesn’t need to be just of kids, any adult would be happy to receive these too!! Enjoy your extra special birthday breakfast!
