I’ve been in a bit of a blogging rut recently, friends. Honestly, I feel like I’ve been struggling with it since the beginning of the summer.

funfetti cake
  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line two 8-inch or three 6-inch cake pans with parchment paper. Spray pans and parchment with cooking spray.
  • Whisk together four, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  • Cream butter on medium-high speed with an electric mixer or stand mixer. Add sugar and mix until fluffy
  • Add egg whites, vanilla, and butter flavoring; mix well.
  • Add half of flour mixture and half of milk to sugar mixture. Mix until ingredients are just combined. Add remaining flour mixture and milk; mix until completely combined.
  • Stir in rainbow sprinkles, stirring as little as possible to prevent the colors from bleeding.
  • Divide batter among cake pans and bake for 25-28 minutes, or until cakes are lightly golden on top and a toothpick inserted into the center of each layer comes out clean.
  • Let cakes cool in pans for 5-10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
birthday cake frosting
  • Cream butter on medium high speed until smooth and creamy. Add cake mix, milk, and vanilla. Mix until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  • Add half of powdered sugar and mix well. Add remaining powdered sugar and mix until combined.
  • Spread frosting between layers of cake. Add sprinkles to frosting and spread frosting around the outside of the cake. Reserve about a cup of frosting to pipe swirls on top of the cake, if desired.
