Vegan Funfetti Birthday Cupcakes


Happy Birthday…… to me!!


It has been a fabulous birthday week! Ok so technically my birthday was Monday…but as long as the birthday mail keeps coming I reuse to give up the bday crown :) I wouldn’t refuse another birthday cake either… I like vanilla with chocolate buttercream…just sayin’…


or pumpkin cake (my favorite)…

or carrot cake…


or FUNFETTI cake!


My birthday is the 9th and my dad’s birthday is the 10th…..and we had the Michigan v. Notre Dame tailgate last weekend… anddd its two of my good friend’s weddings this weekend (SO excited!), so this week has been jam packed with every and any combination of butter and sugar. My birthday detox might be even more necessary than my Christmas detox. Remember that Green Monster smoothie I posted last week??


 Birthday guy and me celebrating our big days at the football tailgate! LOVE me my cookie cake.

So after a super yummy week of all my favorite treats with all my favorite people, I wanted to celebrate again with you all (my favorite readers!) and one of my favorite  birthday recipes…Funfetti Cake!! Funfetti cake has a serious sweet spot in my heart. It’s one of those quintessential nostalgic foods that just. makes. me. happy! I mean rainbow sprinkles?? Big fluffy white buttercream?? Yes, yes please!


Only problem is that yummy nostalgic box of Funfetti I was obsessed with as a kid is packed and processed with some not so happy ingredients. So I decided to come up with my own vegan version that I could feel good about eating and sharing with friends. Plus… vegan baking is SO easy. Which makes it an even happier birthday :) You literally just whisk together the cupcake ingredients and drop into the cupcake pan. Fab – u – lous.

Have amazing weekends everyone! Funfetti isn’t just for birthdays… I think they’re for random Friday nights too?!

  10. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?! I thought I’d already commented on this! HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAYYY! These cupcakes look seeeriously delish. I love that you somehow vegan-ified it, awesome!

  11. Happy Belated Birthday! September is the best right? That picture of you and your dad is super cute!

    • Whipped Baking says:

      Haha its true! We’re almost birthday twins :) You and my dad have the same day! Hope you had an amazing bday too Emily!

  12. Happy Birthday!!! These cupcakes look delicious, and definitely my kind of birthday treat. There’s nothing like funfetti to get you in the birthday mood. :) I hope you and your dad had a great birthday!! You two are so cute!

  13. Happy (so beyond belated) Birthday! Nothing says birthday like funfetti cupcakes!! These look delicious with the added bonus that they are vegan.

  14. Happy (very belated) birthday!!! Honestly, I think we shouldn’t have birthdays… Or birth-weeks… We should have birth-months! A whole month to celebrate so that we make sure we get all of our favorite sweets, without feeling sick from eating them all in one day. :)

    Great tip about the little round sprinkles on top! I bet they bleed even worse than blueberries, and those are pretty bad!

    • Whipped Baking says:

      Ya! I was so excited to use the little round ones too, they’re adorable – the frosting just turned the worst purple/brown…but still tasted good :) !

  15. Sounds great but looking to make a cake…how would I modify this?

    • Whipped Baking says:

      Hi Stacey! This should make a one layer 9 inch round cake, let me know how it goes! :)

  16. This is wonderful! Would I be able to substitute coconut oil for the canola oil? Thank you for the recipe! :)
