  • Homemade Whipped Cream
  • Powdered Sugar
  • 15.25 oz box of white cake mix or homemade white cake cupcakes
  • Sprinkles- pink, yellow, green & blue


  • Make your cupcakes as directed on your packaged box, or your homemade recipe.
  • When the cupcakes are completely cooled, cut off the tops and set them aside.
  • Put your whipped cream on the top of the cupcakes.
  • Take the tops of your cupcakes and slice them in half so that they are two half circles.
  • Place each half on the whipped cream at an angle.
  • Using a sieve/sifter, dust some powdered sugar on the tops of the cupcakes.
  • Add sprinkles! I like pink & yellow Sixlets-type round chocolate candies.
  • Serve immediately and store un-cut cupcakes and whipped cream separately.
