Rainbow Sprinkle Cupcakes

I haven't blogged in a month because my life has been wrapped around the main floor bathroom reno, which is now entering its fourth week! :(  My house is covered in a very fine coat of dust, which is not a very appetizing environment for mixing batter or rolling out cookie dough.  However, this weekend my younger daughter celebrated her 22nd birthday, so it was time to dust off the Kitchenaid mixer. ;)

When I originally asked her what she wanted for her birthday, she asked for something very "old school" - rainbox sprinkle cake from a box, with chocolate frosting.  Nothing from scratch, just something sentimental - she's pretty sweet that way!  Since the whole family won't be over again until Easter weekend, the cake evolved into cupcakes, which are also much easier to share with the office gang.  Neither of us has any desire to have all the cupcakes sitting at home for the rest of the week, so my office buddies will be happy to see the treats tomorrow.

Maybe I should leave some at home to encourage the contractor to finish the bathroom faster...
