Double Birthday Celebration

We all know that Memorial Weekend is coming up and lucky for me that means 3 day weekend!! In addition to it being Memorial Day this long weekend, I have two lovely co-workers who are celebrating birthdays as well, and since many of the people in the office also took off Friday, I decided to make cupcakes tonight in lieu of a triple holiday weekend.  I felt like going for something colorful for the occasion and what is more colorful than confetti?!?
Confetti Cupcakes adapted from I Heart Cuppycakes
Ingredients: 1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
6 tbsp. butter, softened
1/2 cup milk
3 large egg whites
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/3 cup multi-colored sprinkles ("jimmies")
