Make your own homemade funfetti cake with this easy and delicious recipe!
First off all, I have to say a big happy birthday to my sweet Jack. He is two today, and we are so grateful he is our son! Isn’t he so handsome?!
I have a post I’m writing lamenting on motherhood…but I just haven’t had time to finish it (life of a mom right?!) So, I thought I would share a fun recipe for the cake we had at Jack’s birthday party a few weeks ago.
I don’t care how old you get — you are never too old for funfetti! I thought it would be fun to make a homemade funfetti cake. It’s a super simple recipe, but it’s fun to make. I always think homemade cakes are always better.
Sure, just buying a funfetti cake from the store would be easier, but you can use whatever sprinkles you want by making it yourself (I absolutely love this assorted batch from Wilton — so easy to work with!), and honestly, it doesn’t require a whole lot more effort than making a store bought cake requires. I promise!
One thing I should note — don’t mix the sprinkles in using a beater! I made that mistake, and it pretty much turned the cake a weird, greenish blue color. Fortunately after it was baked, it wasn’t quite such an odd color. I recommend making the cake recipe, pour it into the pans, and then pour a bunch of sprinkles into the batter. That’s what I did after my first mishap, and it worked much better!
Now, excuse me, while I go snuggle by big two-year-old (Thomas the Tank Engine is calling!)
