Oh, I didn’t mention sprinkles. SPRINKLES are VERY important. Trust me.

They make celebrating more festive with all the super-fun colors.funfetti batter in muffin top panI added extra sprinkles to the top of the batter, so the mini cakes would have pretty sprinkles all over the tops as well as inside.  mini funfetti cakesSee the tops are covered in colorful sprinkles even after baked.  Fun, right? I just love lemon and adding lemon flavor to these mini cakes has you smelling the wonderful sweet lemon aroma as soon as they come out of the oven. Topping them with lemon frosting and tinting it yellow, makes the celebrating even more fun. Spring is here and I just love bright yellow flowers so that was a perfect look for these mini cakes.

Here are some tips on how you can celebrate more:

1. make the most of celebrating by taking the stress off and going back to some basics of balloons and candy along with cake, make for a perfect party

2. celebrate 1/2 birthdays so it doesn’t seem so long before you are celebrating again.just think twice as much fun and cake in every year. Bake a round cake and cut it in half, frost the cake to create a two layer half cake.

3. play games, fill a jar with candy and have everyone guess how many pieces, the winner gets the sweet treat. Grab a bag of peanuts and hide them all over the house. Go on a peanut hunt, fun for everyone. play everyone’s favorite songs for a fun game of freeze dance.

    Diane, We have two adopted children and have always, always celebrated special days with them – not just their birthdays, but also their adoption days! For both of them that occurred about 6-8 months after their birth, so they have what they call their “half-birthdays” each year. Even though they are both getting into young adulthood now, they still want their special cakes for those days – and more times than not, we must have SPRINKLES on them! I have a cupboard full of various jars of sprinkles so we have no problem fulfilling their wishes! Thanks for all of your great recipes!

  2. We always celebrate the kids birthdays by letting them pick their favorite meal – and dessert, of course!

  3. My family is rich in traditions. We love to celebrate birthdays by doing dinner out. Birthday person gets to pick location.

  4. We eat! I usually try to make something special (that the kids request) when we are celebrating 😉
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  5. I head to my favorite ice cream shop. It’s so cliche, but it’s what I love. They make a few flavors that I just can’t seem to replicate on my own, yet. (You know I’m trying.)

  6. Justin Loves Funfetti. Looks Yummy but you ALWAYS make yummy things. and who ever takes the photos is a GENIUS. I will have 2 make this 4 sure

  7. We celebrate almost everything by making ice cream sundaes. The kids always love ice cream and with all of the different ingredients or cakes/cookes we can throw in, sundae making is different every time!

  8. The birthday girl/guy gets to pick what kind of birthday cake they would like, they also get to pick a special activity they would like to do for their birthday!

  9. The whole family gets together for a celebratory meal. The meal prep is shared, because it’s a lot of work for a couple of people to do. If it’s a birthday or celebration for one person, like a graduation, then that person gets to dictate menu. Otherwise everyone gets a say in the menu. We’ve had Mexican, Chinese, French, and Jewish cuisine for the past 4 Christmas dinners. And Greek cuisine for one of my past birthdays.
