In recent years, the small and exquisite cupcakes have become increasingly popular among consumers. Cupcakes are small cakes made with oil and egg batter and named after being baked in paper cups made of grease-resistant paper. Cupcakes are designed as personal-sized cakes that are usually baked on paper or aluminum foil cup holders. In Europe, cupcakes are often served as afternoon tea snacks. Romantic flowers, fresh fruits, rich coffee flavors, colored sprinkles, and other elements can all be added to cupcakes to make them more personalized and creative.
A wide variety of candies have various shapes and flavors. Using them to decorate small and cute cupcakes can create amazing sparks. Adding a layer of cream frosting to cupcakes is like a blank canvas for creators to unleash their imagination. You can use chocolate beans or juice gumdrops to create various patterns. If the cake sprinkles are too small to handle easily with your hands, you can use tweezers. Don't give up using candy bars just because they're too big, or you will miss out on their deliciousness.
Ⅰ. Colored sprinkle cupcakes
The colored sprinkle cupcakes are made mainly of cake flour and egg whites.
1. Pour cake flour (240g) into a large bowl, add two egg whites, two tablespoons of fresh cream (150ml), three tablespoons of salad oil, half a cup of water, and an appropriate amount of colored sprinkles.
2. Mix the ingredients on low speed until they are mixed together. Then, beat at high speed until the cake batter becomes thick and beautiful, elastic, like beating egg whites.
3. Preheat the oven to 180℃, place the cupcakes in a cupcake mold, and then spoon the cake batter into the cupcake mold, filling it about two-thirds full. Bake for about 20 minutes, and Ding- the cupcakes are ready! Remove the cupcakes from the mold and let them cool down.
4. You can start making cream while the cake is baking. If you like chocolate, you can sift cocoa powder and sugar into the milk and cream, then beat until the cream has clear patterns. Then put it in the refrigerator to cool down.
Finally, you can pack the cupcakes when the heat dissipates.

Ⅱ. How to cover cupcakes with colored sprinkles
Before covering your cupcakes with sprinkles, the most important thing is to completely coat your cupcakes with any flavor of frosting. To ensure that the cake sprinkles remain under your control, place the cupcakes on a cake stand or plate, and then place them on a baking sheet with a wire rack. The easiest way to spread the sprinkles is to grab a handful of them, press them onto the sides of the cupcake, and gently rub them up and down. Repeat this step until the entire cupcake is covered with sprinkles. Then decorate the top of the cupcakes according to your preferences.
If you're using chocolate sprinkles, you may need a spoon to evenly spread the sprinkles around the cupcake so they won't melt in your hands.
When you finish decorating, simply collect any leftover sprinkles from the baking sheet and put them back into the box for the next decoration!
