Confetti Cakes' Polka Dot Cupcakes Recipe

This design couldn't be sweeter or easier to accomplish. These cupcakes make a statement without a lot of work. In pastel colors they are perfect for a baby or bridal shower. For a fun fiesta, use bright, bold colors. Polka dots like this are fabulous on any cupcake, cake, or cookie. If you do not like fondant, arrange the polka dots on smooth buttercream.
