I’m excited to share my latest party article in Pink Magazine with you – Slumber Party Cupcakes! I’ll let you in on a little secret – this recipe started off as Funfetti Pancakes but I kept burning them so I gave up and thought of a new idea. Same batter but a completely different result and they are delicious! It’s a cupcake that tastes like a pancake then topped with a yummy whipped frosting. Slumber parties are known for lots of sugar, right? Yes! So don’t feel guilty if you serve these delicious cupcakes for breakfast! These would be great for a midnight snack, dessert or breakfast. Sprinkles belong to one of the food groups, right? I’ll look it up on Google later.
