Happy 26th Birthday Arissa

I made these for my younger sister’s birthday.

Aren’t they cute?

I decided to make mini cupcakes because the last time I needed mini cupcake liners, the only ones I could find came in a pack of 300. Do you have any recipes that will help me deplete my plethora* of mini cupcake liners? If you could please send them my way I would greatly appreciate it. Danke schӧn.

*Anyone else think of ¡Three Amigos! when they see this word? Just me? Ok.

Makes 24 mini cupcakes and 5 regular sized cupcakes


1 ⅔ cups all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup sugar

1 stick butter, melted

1 egg

¼ cup sour cream

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a mini muffin tin with mini cupcake liners. Combine all ingredients in a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Fill cupcake liners halfway full.

Cream Cheese Frosting courtesy of All Recipes

Makes about 2 cups of frosting

Note: I only used about 1 cup of frosting for these cupcakes and froze the rest. I tinted half with a mixture of pink, red and blue Wilton’s concentrated icing gel and for the other half I crushed and mixed in 2 Oreo cookies. I topped the pinkish frosted cupcakes with rainbow sprinkles and topped the rest with a quarter of an Oreo cookie.


½ cup butter, softened

8 ounces cream cheese

4 cups confectioners’ sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Beat softened butter and cream cheese until well blended.
  2. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until creamy.
