Happy Day Cupcakes Recipe

I have been wanting to try this Marie recipe for a while – I wanted to make something different than a cake – so I decided to make some cupcakes ๐Ÿ™‚ I have a slight obsession with decorating cupcakes – I love to make them fun and colorful ๐Ÿ™‚

I really hope you enjoy this recipe

Make sure to REPIN the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

I am VERY excited this is the 14th from Marie the first recipe ( Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe ( Recipes from Marie) )

If you have no idea who Marie is – go HERE – I found a vintage recipe box in a local antique store so I am making and posting one her recipes weekly on Tuesday

Today is Dutch Country Dirt Sundae Recipe

I really hope you check back weekly for another recipe from Marie — pretty please comment ( let’s make this like a little community)

You will be able to tell which recipes are hers by the flower on the picture above ๐Ÿ™‚

This is one of my first times working with shorting – I usually work with unsalted butter when I am baking

I really loved this recipe – it is a simple white cake but it is sweet and simple – isn’t that the best type?

There is nothing I would change about the recipe — my family agrees it takes much better than the white box cake. I added some frosting and sprinkles to finish off the treat ๐Ÿ™‚

This would be the perfect type of recipe to get your kids into baking

Happy Day Cupcakes Recipe



  • 2¼ Cup of Flour
  • 3 Teaspoons of Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1½ Cup of Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • ½ Cup of Shorting
  • 1 Cup of Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract


  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. I do not think the cake batter would fill a 9x13 but I think a 8x8 would be perfect
  3. Take a large bowl and combine all the dry ingredients together
  4. In another bowl combine all the wet ingredients ( I melted the shorting and added it to the wet ingredients )
  5. Mix the wet to the dry
  6. Pour batter into the baking dish
  7. Bake for 30 - 45 minutes - until completely cooked ( just test with a toothpick)
