Sharing is caring!

We worked on a fun video project last month with Reynolds and Epicurious Community Table.  They reached out to us to create a fun treat using Reynolds Foil Baking Cups for the 4th of July holiday.  We had a great time putting together this baking project as well as creating this recipe for Patriotic Vanilla Confetti Cupcakes.

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup red and blue sprinkles
  • favorite buttercream frosting


    PREHEAT oven to 350ºF.

    SIFT together the dry ingredients.
    ADD the dry ingredients, alternating with the milk, in three equal parts. After each addition, beat until the ingredients are incorporated. Do NOT over mix.

    BAKE until the cupcakes are golden brown, about 20 –25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcake comes out clean.
    Remove from the oven and let cool completely (at least 60 minutes) before frosting with your favorite buttercream frosting.
    TOP with remaining sprinkles.

It's delicious! I'm made it last year for my Independence Day party and it was a hit! You've got to try these, with only two days until Independence Day, I'm making them again!
