Funfetti Cupcakes - from scratch!

soooo - this is usually how our nights go at our house (lots of girls living together):

roomie 1: mads, make cupcakes!
roomie 2: yea, yea ,yea! do it!
me: no guys, make them yourselves. we dont even have the ingredients.
roomie 3: whatever mads, just go to the store, get the ingredients, and then make them and serve us.
roomie 1 and 2: good idea
me: **expletive** i hate you all. no.
roomie 1: COME ONNNN!!!
me: whatever, we have heavy whipping cream and no milk, and old eggs. you guys enjoy the outcome.
roomie 1, 2, 3: YESSSSSS!!! sounds amazing.
me: you are all retarded.

and thats how cupcakes usually get made at our house....or any food, for that matter. old ingredients and sprinkles make anyone happy, right?

anyway, the point here is that we all wanted funfetti cupcakes, and we didn't want to go to the store to get the box. sooo - i made home made ones - the ones that Mrs. How Sweet posted yesterday! how convenient!

all i can say is - damn i'm glad i made them with heavy whipping cream mixed with water (disgustingly awesome) - because they turned out amazing and i didnt even ice them because 1: toooooo effing lazy. and 2: didn't need icing. and 3: my greedy ass roomies couldn't wait another minute. (but i love them.)

Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes 
{*via How Sweet Eats, only slightly adapted}
makes 12 cupcakes
1/2 cup butter (light butter in our case)
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs (old eggs. whatever)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup milk (umm...mostly heavy whipping cream with a little bit of milk)
1/3 cup assorted brightly colored sprinkles + more for top of frosting...*or just to eat out of the palm of your hand

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add half of the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Add the milk. Once mixed, add remaining dry ingredients. Fold in assorted sprinkles.

Pour into cupcake tins and fill 2/3 of the way full. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Let cool, then frost.
