I saw these Fiesta Confetti Cupcakes on the Fiesta blog and just couldn’t resist giving them a try. I discovered, or rather re-discovered Fiesta dishes earlier this year. I always remembered that my dad had a favorite yellow plate when he was growing up; it was a Fiesta plate. They no longer make the yellow he had but I always remember the plate with fond memories. Earlier this year I started looking into colored dishes that could be mixed and matched and I wanted something made in the USA and re-discovered Fiesta. I have to admit, I’m now getting a bit obsessed. I have started collecting and I’m really enjoying the quality of the dishes and the fun colors.
While searching on the Fiesta blog, I found many recipes and this one stood out. While I don’t yet have a full collection of Fiesta ramekins, I do have some older white ones that I used for this recipe. I think you could easily make these in small cups or mugs as well.
The recipe is really easy and fast and yummy. My family devoured them quickly. And the other great thing is that you don’t have a ton of cake around since this makes four servings. I sometimes like the idea of having cake but don’t want 24 cupcakes in the house. This is a nice solution. I hope you will give them a try as well. Enjoy!
