Where beer and cupcakes unite!

Funfetti with a twist!

We don’t usually post on Sundays, but I thought we’d change things up a bit and see what happens.

As we were thinking about what kind of cupcake we wanted this weekend, we decided to keep it simple and give you a recipe that any one can make. We made our shopping list, got the goods, and got to baking.

All you need to make these delicious treats is a box of Funfetti cake mix, eggs, oil, and replace the water called for in the recipe with beer. We decided to use Pabst Blue Ribbon, a light golden lager. This beer went well with the cake, the flavor is very mild and it let the flavor of the cake mix and sprinkles really shine through.

For frosting we went with Funfetti Vanilla. This frosting is so sweet, and very thick. I actually used half of the can on the first 3 cupcakes with the frosting gun! After topping these cakes off with an appropriate amount of sprinkles, they were ready for consumption.

No refrigeration necessary on these babies! I bet there's enough preservatives to keep them fresh for a whole week.

I know we’re not ones who usually give all our cupcake secrets away, but, we just couldn’t resist sharing these tasty treats with all our loyal readers! Maybe next time we’ll try using a light beer for an even lighter flavor! You never know, we’re just crazy enough to do something like that.

Until next time, happy baking!

    I’d be curious to try this with Blue Moon Spiced Ale, from their winter collection. The cinnamon and sweetness would really shine through and complement the cupcake.
