Why I Love This Recipe

Let's make every bite of your little one's birthday party unforgettable with these magical cupcakes! Swirled with the dreamiest pink frosting and dusted with a sprinkle of edible glitter, they're not just treats; they're tiny, edible wishes. Each cupcake is crafted with love, ensuring that every guest, both young and young at heart, leaves with a sparkle in their eye and a sweetness in their heart. Here's to making memories as sweet as these cupcakes!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup whole milk
Pink food coloring
3 cups confectioners' sugar
1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3-4 tbsp whole milk
Edible pink glitter or sprinkles


Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a muffin pan with cupcake liners.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a separate bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup of softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.

Gradually mix in the dry ingredients, alternating with the milk, until just blended.

Add a few drops of pink food coloring to achieve the desired shade of pink for the batter.

Divide the batter evenly among the prepared cupcake liners and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.

To make the pink frosting, beat the 1/3 cup of softened butter until creamy, then gradually add the confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract.

Mix in enough milk (3-4 tbsp) to reach the desired consistency for spreading or piping.

Add more pink food coloring if needed, then frost the cooled cupcakes.

Sprinkle edible pink glitter or sprinkles on top of the frosting to make it sparkle.

Serve and enjoy!
