My youngest turned 8 earlier this month, for his birthday party we served these awesome Ice Cream Tacos. He has a tough time making choices sometimes so when I asked him for his family birthday cake choice, he kept going back and forth. I tried to have him look on Pinterest with me, and we finally came up with a combination that I think we all enjoyed, this Sprinkle Birthday Cake Recipe. Basically a yellow cake recipe with added sprinkles and a white cream cheese frosting recipe.
I have made chocolate cake from scratch before but had never made a yellow cake so I adapted this 100 year old one bowl yellow cake recipe. Next time I will use 8 inch pans instead of the 9 to get a higher cake.
How to make this Sprinkles Birthday Cake Recipe
I told you this is easy, I did make mine a mixer just to make things simpler. But now you can add the fun sprinkles.
Divide your batter evenly among the 2 pans. This cake looks so festive already. Feel free to use holiday related sprinkles too, for a special theme birthday cake idea.
I was glad the sprinkles did not stick to the bottom of the pan, which I started worrying about once they went in the oven. Once the cakes are cooled frost away and add some extra sprinkles if you dare!
Nothing says Happy Birthday more than birthday candles!
Making homemade cakes really are not that hard, and I think it turned out to be pretty festive, don’t you? A homemade Funfetti cake that you can personalize for your special person or team.
This was devoured pretty quickly over 2 days. I stored it in the fridge overnight! Cake does taste pretty good cold too.
