Party Piñata Cupcakes

Party people! Are we ready to bid farewell to 2016?

This year has been a year of ups and downs. Big changes, new house, new puppy, happy celebrations, and emotional losses. Personally, it’s kicked my butt. 2016 has been a blessed and exciting thrill, but I’m ready to welcome a fresh start with 365 days of new experiences. If you’re in the same boat, let’s reinvigorate ourselves, shed any baggage we’ve got lingering on our shoulders, and give a warm welcome to 2017.

And let’s do it with cupcakes that literally burst with confetti.

I’ve gotten a few email requests for a cupcake recipe like this over the past year. Piñata cake in cupcake form. Usually it’s for gender reveal showers and parties– wouldn’t these be so fun for that with pink or blue sprinkles!!!– but, for my blog, I wanted to share a version that could be used for virtually any holiday or event. And I saved the recipe idea to share before New Years Eve because… rainbow sprinkles. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
