Funfetti Cupcakes--A Brief History

 If I know nothing else about cupcakes, I know that the most popular flavor among the Y generation is Funfetti. Yes, from hipsters to prepsters to gangsters (alright, so I don't know any prespsters...), funfetti continues to reign supreme in the hearts of us sense-of-entitlement brats.

Unfortunately, I can't find much information on the history of Funfetti, but what I can tell you is that it was introduce in 1990 (hence its popularity among the same demographic that can quote lines from Saved by the Bell and remember buying their first CD) by Pillsbury. Funfetti has come quite a long way since its box-mix days though, just don't tell that to the Dough Boy. I get the feeling he'd get all emo on us.

Anyway, if you're itching to make your own--and believe me, they are better from scratch--this is a great step by step recipe.
