  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups cake flour sifted
  • cups granulated sugar sifted
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles plus more for garnish
  • 1 recipe for cream cheese frosting or vanilla buttercream


  • Preheat oven to 350° and line a cupcake pan with paper liners.
  • Combine the egg whites, vanilla whole milk. Whisk together and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl; sift the dry ingredients. Fitted with a paddle attachment, blend the dry ingredients with the butter and half of the milk and egg mixture. Scrape the sides and bottom of the mixing bowl, and then slowly add the remaining mixture and stop mixing once combined.
  • Fold in sprinkles and fill paper liners half way. Bake in preheated oven for 17-20 minutes. Watch carefully so you don’t over bake.
  • Lastly, frost with the prepared cream cheese frosting and sprinkle with remaining sprinkles.
  • Refrigerate any uneaten cupcakes.
