Make the cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with three cupcake papers.
In a large bowl, combine the egg, sugar and vanilla using a whisk. Whisk in the oil. Add the flour, baking powder and salt; stir together until just combined, then add the milk. Fold in the two tablespoons of confetti sprinkles. Divide the batter between the three cupcake liners, filling them no more than 3/4 full.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the cupcakes have fully crowned and spring back when pressed in the center. Let cool completely.
Make the frosting: Cream the butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Add the confectioners' sugar and beat to combine. Beat in the vanilla.
Add the pinch of salt and cake mix; beat together. Add milk one tablespoon at a time until the mixture is lax enough to pipe. Transfer the frosting to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip and pipe onto cooled cupcakes. Garnish with sprinkles.
