These Birthday Cake Muffins are super fluffy, just like a birthday cake – and they taste just like it too! I include sprinkles inside the batter and then add additional sprinkles on top once in the muffin pan to give them a bright rainbow color all over! They remind me of Funfetti cake mix but in muffin form!

These would be perfect for a Birthday Celebration or birthday breakfast, but they would also be great for just adding some cheer to your day or bringing a snack gift to leave in the kitchen at work.
