Confetti Filled Cupcakes are a pinata cupcake with a hidden surprise inside every cupcake. Perfect for a birthday part or celebration.
My daughter’s birthday was last month. We made two kinds of cupcakes to celebrate. There were lemon cupcakes and these Chocolate Confetti Cupcakes!
On the outside these cupcakes look like an ordinary cupcake, but take a bite and you discover a pocket full of confetti sprinkles! You should have heard the giggles of delight from my niece as she discovered the surprise inside!
Any cupcake recipe or flavor would work for this treat. I used our favorite, chocolate mayonnaise cupcakes. These pumpkin spice cupcakes or lemon cupcakes would work too. Once your cupcakes are baked and cooled, you cut a little plug out of the center. Then fill the hole with confetti sprinkles and frost. That’s it!!! Super easy!
To make it even simpler, you could purchase cupcakes without frosting from your local bakery and then fill and frost yourself.
Just imagine the fun you could have at your next party!
