Funfetti Frosting Recipe

It’s full of buttery flavor, loaded with colorful confetti sprinkles, and a whole lot of FUN to make. I’m talking about super delicious and cute Funfetti Frosting! 

Another addition to my list of frostings is this fun and delicious Funfetti Frosting. It has the base flavor of pure buttercream with some rainbow confetti sprinkles in it. 

Time and again, we struggle to find a good and delicious frosting. And store-bought frostings are a big ‘no-no.’ They are loaded with sugar and have quite an artificial taste as they add shortening to them. Homemade frostings are the best. That is why I keep on bringing various frosting recipes for you all. They are a lot less sweet, and you can always adjust consistency as per your needs. 

Buttercream frosting can sometimes be tricky to make. Some recipes ask for too much sugar, or sometimes it has a gritty texture as the sugar doesn’t dissolve entirely. If you follow my recipes, you will find that I mix milk and icing sugar first in my buttercream recipes and then add this mixture to the beaten butter. This reduces the chances of grittiness to a minimum and also gives a nice texture and richness to the buttercream.

Adult or kid, everyone’s eyes pop when they see colorful confetti and sugar sprinkles. This frosting goes well with anything vanilla, whether a cake, cupcake, jar cake dessert, etc. 

Why You’ll Love This Recipe? 

  • It’s Colorful: adding sprinkles to vanilla frosting is a pure genius way to bring a smile to anyone’s face. Yes, you may not smile that big when you see a basic white vanilla cake, but you will definitely have your smile reach your eyes when there’s a pop of color in it. 
  • Fun To Make: It’s so much fun to just throw in a fistful of confetti sprinkles. You can add in the frosting, or you can Sprinkle them as garnish too. And you can have anyone (especially kids) do that for you. 
  • Crowd-pleaser: No one can ever say no to this frosting. Why, you ask? Well, who doesn’t like vanilla with sugary colorful sprinkles in it?? You will never have to worry about whether your guests will love it or not! 

Important Ingredients Used In The Recipe

  • Unsalted Butter: Use room temperature soft unsalted butter. Frostings must always be made with unsalted butter as you really don’t want any excess saltiness in your icing, which is what happens when you use salted butter. 
  • Icing Sugar: Always use store-bought icing sugar. Sift the sugar before using it for frosting. This helps avoid clumps present in the sugar. 
  • Milk: I prefer using full-fat milk for my recipes. Milk helps bring smoothness and richness to the frosting. 
  • Salt: Just a pinch of salt can enhance the entire taste of any product. Also, with unsalted butter in place, you get the leverage to add salt as per your liking. 
  • Rainbow Sprinkles: The star ingredient is rainbow sprinkles. Use a good brand for sprinkles. Ensure they are not sticky and not too old. 

How To Make Funfetti Frosting 

Preparation: Collect all ingredients and tools needed to make the frosting. 

Mix Milk And Sugar: mix milk and sifted icing sugar in a bowl. Use a spatula or a whisk to mix the two. Ensure that the sugar has dissolved. 

Beat Butter: Now, beat softened unsalted butter using an electric hand beater. The speed must be kept at medium. Continue beating until you get a fluffy and pale texture. 

Add Milk-Sugar Mixture: Start adding the milk and icing sugar mixture gradually into the beaten butter. Only add some at a time, as then it will splutter everywhere when mixed. Add and combine in batches. 

Add Salt: Once the milk mixture is incorporated, add pinch of salt and mix.

Add Rainbow Sprinkles: Finally, throw the rainbow sprinkles into the frosting and fold using a spatula. 

Chef’s Tips For The Recipe

Add Milk in Batches

When the milk-sugar mixture is added to the butter, it does not mix immediately, as fat and liquid do not mix well. When you add the mixture a little at a time and beat it continuously, it will come together, and the frosting won’t look curdled anymore. 

Don’t Mix Sprinkles Using a Beater

Do not make the mistake of mixing sprinkles with an electric hand beater. The sprinkles will break into very small pieces and may even bleed color. Only use a spatula to fold them into the frosting. 

How To Store Funfetti Frosting

I prefer using freshly made frosting for the best-tasting experience. You can always store any leftovers or make them ahead of time. In that case, store it in an airtight container or a bowl tightly covered with cling wrap in the refrigerator for up to a week. 

In the freezer, it can stay good for a month.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Can I add color to the frosting? 

Although, rainbow sprinkled will pop out the best when added to the plain frosting. However, you can still add some light colors to the frosting if you want. 

Can I use it with any dessert? 

It pairs best with confetti cake (check the recipe here). You can also use it with vanilla cupcakes or cake. 

Can I add any flavor to the frosting? 

Funfetti frosting would taste best with flavors like vanilla, strawberry, lemon, coconut, any berry, or even chocolate.

“I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date”
Before this program I knew a little about manifestations, but as I discovered during the program, I had a lot of limiting beliefs that kept me from fully embracing and accepting myself as a manifestor.
During this program I became more aware of what manifestation is and how powerful I am. I become more aware of my guides, of my highest self and that I can pull the best of my highest self into my present. Since this program I no longer wrestle with trying to convince myself that what I desire will happen. I know that it has happened, it is done and it is mine, here and now. I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date, my eyesight has improved and I no longer need glasses for distance vision, only for reading, I gave myself a make-over as part of my commitment to my renewal and I began to de-clutter my space.

“My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes”
Joining “The Art of Manifesting” was a life-changing decision for me. This is now the third time going through the quest and focusing on different areas of manifestation.
Regan is a powerful guide and she walks the talk.
This 28-day journey was a blend of practical techniques and profound energetical activations. I learned to visualize my goals clearly, expand my possibilities, and overcome the limitations holding me back from living a life i desire. The quest’s unique approach to identity hacking helped me align my inner self with my aspirations, making the manifestation process more effective and authentic.
The biggest takeaway for me was the acceleration of manifestation by bending time and tapping into the highest frequencies. The techniques taught in the quest enabled me to see results much faster than I expected. My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes, and goals that once seemed unattainable are now within reach.
I’m beyond grateful for the wisdom and tools I’ve gained from this quest and Regan. It’s not just about manifesting; it’s about transforming your entire lifestyle. I highly recommend “The Art of Manifesting” to anyone looking to turn their dreams into reality.

“This course and listening to Regan’s podcasts gave me the tools to acknowledge my blocks and mindsets around drinking”
I have so enjoyed this journey with Regan, I am a new person as a result of this quest. I now have new beliefs & mindsets that I keep working on daily, hourly. A kinder and more compassionate version of me has emerged over this journey, and I love her!
This quest has resulted in me finding the lost me, the me that has been hidden under the voices of doubt, fear or just lack of awareness that I get to run my life not the other voices in my head or family and people around me. When we wire ourselves to the future version of us, then we make different choices and we are already a different person!
Thank you Regan, thank you Mindvalley, thank you tribe!!!! ❤❤, I love you all and wish you a magical Christmas and hope our paths may cross one day at Mindvalley events.

“My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest”
Before taking this Quest I believed that the prerequisites of success were hard work, long hours, timing and a degree of luck; “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” was my mantra. Trying to achieve success with this mindset was exhausting, frustrating and unsustainable.


I then discovered The Art of Manifesting … and was blown away.


The foundational teaching of focusing on your inner world to achieve has been transformative in the way I live my life. I now know that cultivating the feeling of already being in possession of that which you want, accelerates the manifestation of what you desire.


My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest, and have discovered a path to manifest greater abundance in the year to come. But perhaps the biggest shift I experienced during this quest now knowing that I am worthy and deserving of abundance. Regan, I am eternally grateful to you, thank you :-)

“Now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered”
Before this program, I believed somewhat in manifestation but never knew how to do it, or if it was real, and the little bit I did know ended up being completely wrong! This Quest has not only taught me how to manifest and put me on the path to doing it the right way, but I was actually able to manifest what I had set at the beginning.
I never thought it would actually come true, but I committed myself to the process and gave it 100% every day. And now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered. It’s truly blowing my mind.
I had a financial goal for the end of the Quest, and different opportunities for selling my artwork started coming up, and the deals are coming out almost to the exact number I had set.
Not only that, but I have truly transformed into a better version of myself in these short weeks, more than I had in the last few years, that my spouse has even noticed.
I’m so excited for what’s to come next and so grateful for this program. Thank you.

“I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design”
I joined Mindvalley on New Year’s 2023. I am excited to share how life has significantly changed in the first 90 days of the year. Beginning with the Silva Method, I envisioned and transformed a dysfunctional personal relationship, into a loving, caring separation, allowing me the peace and serenity to follow my path, and my partner to choose his. In February while on the Art of Manifesting Quest I listed my intent to have a book written by May 2023, and have a speaking engagement booked by December 2023.
I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design, and a journal for Women seeking a deeper connection with themselves, also in design. Both will be uploaded via KDP Amazon self-publishing by May 1st.
I have booked a speaking engagement for May with the intent of having published books with me for sale.
Most importantly – this morning I changed my profile from ‘Document writer’ to ‘Author.’
Gratitude abounds!!!
