♡ Funfetti Layer Cake ♡

Heyyyy! So this week I decided to try and go with an Easter theme because Easer is coming up soon.  So the first thing that came to my mind was to make a Funfetti Cake. It is just so colorful and cute! And while I was shopping for the ingredients, I saw that they were selling Bunny Peeps! So of course I just HAD so buy one. This cake came out so adorable and reminds me of Easter and Spring. It is also really delicious and moist. So pretty much, this cake has the whole package of cuteness and of deliciousness! ( I adapted this recipe from Annie’s Eats, but I did change quite a few things.)
 
I made this Funfetti Cake when my friend Jordan was over at my house. She was so amazed when I started piping the frosting onto the cake. Ad when the cake was done, she kept staring at the cake, and saidthat it looked like a “Profesional Bakery Cake!” My friend also told her aunt to buy a cake from me for her sons 5th birthday!! So I might have another order coming soon…Anyways, I had a sleepover this week with my friends Jordan and Ashley. It was really fun and they lovd the cake. I also had Band assessment this week (for those of you that don’t know what this is, it is when bands play for judges to get a score on how well they are.) My band got all 1’s from the judges, which means Superior! So this weekend has been good :).
 
I just loved the cake, it was oh-so-adorable.
 
Mmmm……..I love the bunny peep!
 
I couldn’t stop taking pictures, this cake was just too CUTE ♡

 It was so fluffy and moist…………..yum!

 
Yield: One 7 in. Two Layer Cake (I only made two layers because my friend ate the rest of the cake batter and so there wasn’t enough for the third layer)
 
Three 7x2in. Cake Pans

3/4 cup of butter
1 cup of milk
3-4 tablespoons of vanilla extract
4 teaspoons of baking powder
2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of sprinkles
6 egg whites
 
Buttercream Frosting:
6 cups of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 tablespoons of heavy cream
2 cups of butter (4 sticks of butter)
 
1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degees.

2. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the butter and sugar together (for about 7-10 minutes).

3. Slowly add in the egg whites and beat until the mixture is fluffy.

4. Next, slouwly pour in the milk and the all-purpose flour (alternate between adding inthe milk and the flour)

5. Finally, add in the vanilla extract,baking powder, and sprinkles. Mix the batter for another 5-10 minutes so tat all of the ingredients are mixed together well.

6. Butter and line the sides and bottom of the Cake Pans with parchment paper.

7. Pour the cake batter in the pans so that they fill the cake pans 2/3 of the way. (You will have extra batter to make another cake, but my friend accidentally ate the batter)

8. Bake the cakes for 30-35 minutes.

9. Let the cakes cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes.

10. Take the cake out from their pans and wrap them in plastic wrap.

11. Place the cakes in the refrigerator and let them cool for about 25-30 minutes.

12. Take the cakes out of the refrigerator.

13. Using a serrated knife,trim the tops of each cake so that it is even. Then, make the frosting.

To Make the Buttercream Frosting:

14. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the butter until it is creamy and fluffy (about 10-15 minutes).

15. Slowly add in the powdered sugar and heavy cream.

16. Finally add int he vanilla extract and any food color of your choice. Beat the frosting until it is light and fluffy (about 5-10 minutes)

17. Place the first cake on top of a cake board. Spread 1 cup of the frosting on top of the cake.

18. Next, place the second cake on top of the first cake (with the serrated side facing down on top of the frosting).

19. Cover the cake with a thin coat of frosting and place it in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. (This is what the cake should look like with a thin coat of frosting)

20. Take the cake out and finish frosting it!
