Spring Fever Funfetti Cupcakes

Happy first day of Spring!!!! 

and it's snowing here...Mother Nature, you sure are funny. 

But I'm ignoring the snow because I certainly have spring fever and that's all I care about. To celebrate spring I made cupcakes that sure are colorful and make you "think Spring" so you can forget about snow! 

While shopping at the store this past week I noticed something new. Pillsbury had gluten free mixes out! Of course I had to try one. And funfetti caught my eye. 

Read my review here.

Of course I just followed the recipe and ingredients on the back of the box. And it was super easy! So I defiantly recommend following their recipe to make the cupcakes. 

They turned out so light and fluffy! I have to say...they are probably my favorite quick mix for making cupcakes and cake now. 

Vanilla Buttercream Icing

1 Cup Crisco Shortening
1 1 lb Bag Confectioners Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Beat the shortening for 1 minute. Then add 1 cup of the sugar and beat. Add water and rest of sugar until consistency becomes light and fluffy. Then add vanilla.
