My Silly Obsession

I've got this silly obsession with sprinkles. But how can you not? They are fun in sugar form...with colors. You can't lose. So I have decided to see what I can do with the little party makers (other than the obvious scattering on everything) and here is use #1:

Scrumptious confetti cake made by YOU! By making this yumminess yourself you can do any color combination you please (like red and green 'confetti' for Christmas) or add as much or as little color-power as you wish (I'd rate my cake as a medium on the color intensity scale).

How do you do it?
1. Get your favorite combo of sprinkles (the softer kind work best like these long, rainbow ones here; sugar sprinkles do not work, they melt into the batter and tint it slightly) and...
2. Mix them into the cake batter just before you pour it into your cake pan!

Add however much you want, for my cake I added a little less than 1/4 cup of sprinkles for the one box of cake mix.

Giving into my sprinkle obsession? Oh, I've Got This!

  1. Sprinkles just make everything festive don't they? My kids have been known to request them in cookies and in yogurt.

    1. They do! Putting them in yogurt is a fun idea, I'll have to try that :)

  2. OMG I love sprinkles too! I'm totally pinning this idea :)
