Does ANYTHING scream celebration like Funfetti Cake?! I don't think so. Growing up this was (still is) my all time favorite cake. Well, move aside Pillsbury... homemade Funfetti is even better!


For cake:
All purpose flour 3 3/4 Cup (60 tbs)
Baking powder 3/4 Teaspoon
Baking soda 3/4 Teaspoon
Salt 1 Teaspoon
Unsalted butter 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs) (3 sticks, room temperature)
Granulated sugar 1 3/4 Cup (28 tbs)
Eggs 4 Large (room temperature)
Egg whites 2 (room temperature)
Vanilla extract 3 Teaspoon
Buttermilk 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs) (room temperature)
Rainbow sprinkles 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
For frosting:
Unsalted butter 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs) (3 sticks, room temperature)
Powdered sugar 6 Cup (96 tbs)
Heavy cream 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Salt 1/8 Teaspoon
Rainbow sprinkles 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Vanilla extract 3 Teaspoon



1.Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and grease 3 9 inch cake pans.


2.In a bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

3.In another bowl with an electric mixer cream the butter and sugar until smooth any creamy, about 5 minutes.

4.Scrape down the sides and add in the 4 large eggs. Beat until mixed completely.

5.Add in the vanilla extract and buttermilk and stir until combined completely

In a another bowl with clean beaters whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes, and set aside.

6.To the buttermilk mixture add in the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Don't over mix the batter using a spatula gently fold in the egg whites. Once combined fold in the sprinkles.

7.Divide the batter into the three pans and put into your preheated oven to bake for 25 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean.

8.Let them cool completely (I let mine sit overnight!) before frosting

In a large bowl cream the softened butter until smooth, about 5 minutes

Add in the powdered sugar, heavy cream, vanilla, and salt. Mix until completely smooth.

9.Add a cake layer on your stand of choice and cover the top completely with frosting. Continue with all three layers.

10.Frost the sides and top of the cake evenly and then set the cake on a sheet try lined with foil, use your hands to sprinkle the top and sides with the sprinkles with as many as you'd like! (This step is optional)


11.That's it! The most festive, delicious cake ever! Time to celebrate!
