baking with fruity pebbles

I love this recipe from Sunny Anderson via the Food Network:  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/sunny-anderson/sunnys-cereal-confetti-cookies.html

I wrote about my first try with this recipe here:  https://justcallmequeen.wordpress.com/2015/06/22/fun-cookies/  They were such a hit that I’ve made a several times since then.  This week, I made a couple of batches of these cookies but decided to try making a cupcake version of it to go along with.  I used the white cake recipe found in Baked by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito.  They describe the cake as a “canvas” for any accompanying flavor and advised how to adjust the cake into cupcakes, so I thought – hey, why not?

The “confetti” part of these cookies are actually the cereal, Fruity Pebbles©.

I served them up with the cookies (which I knew were winners) and they got gobbled up anyways!
