The Fun in Funfetti

September 4, 2011

Hello melty colors. Pretty.

Yesterday I whipped up some Funfetti cupcakes for a friend’s gathering (but ended up coming home with half of them… danger zone!). Which, compared to last weekend’s pudding cookie sweatshop (I’ll write about that soon), was a very easy and relaxing task.

Lately if I am performing time-consuming or tedious tasks alone in my kitchen (cooking projects, washing dishes), I will listen to WTF with Marc Maron. (He interviews comedians. It typically gets pretty deep.) So while I cupcake’d, I got to hear Amy Poehler being her delightful self. I still have a lot of cupcakes left, if you want any, Amy Poehler. (And you too, Marc Maron.)

I only have one muffin tin, so it took twice as long to bake everything. Sigh. During the baking, I watched The Soup.

And during the frosting, I watched Thursday night’s episode of Louie. The Funfetti frosting came with oddly baby/Easter-colored sprinkles. And not really enough of them.

A soothing pastel vision.

There’s something very satisfying about the methodical task of frosting things.

When I ran out of pastel sprinkles, I turned to my stash of chocolate sprinkles. So I have a few manly cupcakes. (For Marc, if he wants them. Or Amy. I’m not gonna be sexist about this.) (Or Joel or Louie. You can all have cupcakes.) (Only if you’re in the Los Feliz area.)

Come and get 'em.

Incidentally, Funfetti is a Pillsbury-only thing. The Betty Crocker version was called something like Rainbow Sprinkle Funtimes.

And it was cheaper, but I HAD to go with the REAL Funfetti. Veracity and all.

Happy Sunday/Labor Day! I am taking Mr. Tea on a very special secret surprise Trek today, and I’m very proud of my secret-keeping skills. (Pics to come, I’m sure.)

Funfetti is the Best Kind of -fetti

The colors! The colors!

The colors! The colors!

Here is the (highly anticipated) Funfetti cake that Roomie made for me! You can see that we gave plates of cake out as “party favors.” The original plan was, Two Girls, One Cake. UH OH! Luckily, we managed to pull together a few friends, and it ended up being a Party of Five. (A very good number, because that’s about as many people as we can comfortably fit in our living room.)

This was Rachel’s first foray into the world of cake-baking (okay, I won’t get too dramatic– it was from a mix), and I do declare that she did an excellent job. Keep up the good work!

I had cake for breakfast this morning, and it definitely put a spring in my step. My solution for world peace: Funfetti cake for breakfast– for everyone! (Let them eat cake!) (How could this possibly go wrong?)
