Cupcakes with white frosting and rainbow sprinkles

Protein Powder Cupcakes!

I used to love baking!  When I graduated from the Easy-Bake Oven to full-fledged baking, my favorite things to bake as a kid were banana bread, angel food cake, and cinnamon rolls. 

I used to be a pretty darn good baker! In fact, I got a Best In Class ribbon for my angel food cake entry at my hometown fair in Marcus, Iowa!  

I don’t do much baking now and prefer cooking instead.  I’m not really one who is interested in measuring my ingredients. Cooking gives me more room for error and to adjust the ingredients based on my liking.  You have to be more precise with baking and it can be a little trickier at a higher altitude.

But when I saw these cupcakes posted by another fellow Arbonne consultant, I had to try them!  And they were delicious!  *BONUS* They are also gluten-free, dairy-free and can be made vegan!  These cupcakes were made using Arbonne’s limited-edition Marble Cake Protein Powder.  If you stumble upon this blog and that yummy Marble Cake flavor is no longer available,  Vanilla Protein Powder will be a suitable substitution.  You will need to grab the vanilla anyway as it is an ingredient in the frosting. 

So for your next party, celebration, or lazy Sunday afternoon, whip up these cupcakes and let me know what you think!
