We are working with Pillsbury and our opinions are our own.
Using the new brightly colored Bold colors of Pillsbury’s Funfetti cupcake mixes and icings we made quite a few bold statements in our house. I made some cupcakes first, they were really large cupcakes and the batter only made five. I forgot about them in the oven so they burned a little bit and when they burn they lose their bright colors so what I decided to do was cute shapes into the cupcakes. I found my butterfly and ice cream cone cookie cutters and cut some really fun shapes after first slicing the cupcake into three horizontally making them thin like cookies.
The kids at them up like nothing flat. And I can’t wait to use one of the other varieties and see how bright the orange and yellow Funfetti mixes come out. Here are all the varieties we received for review:
Funfetti Aqua Blue Cupcake & Cake Mix
Funfetti Orange All Star™ Cupcake & Cake Mix
Funfetti Neon Yellow Cupcake & Cake Mix
Funfetti Vibrant Green Cupcake & Cake Mix
Funfetti Orange All Star Vanilla Flavored Frosting with Colorful Star Shaped Candy Bits
Funfetti Neon Yellow Vanilla Flavored Frosting with Multi-Colored Candy Bits
For a little variety I put a few in a straw so we could have fun shapes on a stick. They say everything is better served on a stick. So here are three tips to go bold and different in a quick and easy way.
Use cookie cutters for fun shapes
Use lots of color for decorations
Use straws to serve creations on a stick
And the giant daddy of them all was this cupcake that I topped with a butterfly. It was AWESOME.
