Frosted Funfetti Cake

No party is complete without cake. So why not give this one-bowl Funfetti Cake a try! Say goodbye to the box!

Frosted-Funfetti-Cake

You’ve made it! Friday is finally here. With all the excitement we had going on this week, it felt like time was flying right on by. And just like that we’ve come to the end of birthday week. I can’t wait to move on from my favorite day of the year to my second favorite – Christmas! I just adore this time of year. Starting with my hubby’s birthday and ending with New Year’s festivities, the fun has only just begun. I seriously cannot wait to get into the kitchen and start making a teeny weeny dent into my holiday baking list.

But first let me tell you about this cake.

Funfetti Cake to be exact. It just had to be done. Birthdays call for cake and I wasn’t going to let this one pass without one. Although I nearly did.

After baking a disastrous version of this cake the day before, I almost decided to skip the birthday cake tradition and whip up something else instead. But I felt as though my pride and reputation were on the line. What if someone asked Adam what I had made him for his birthday and he would let them know that I didn’t deliver on the one thing he requested?! Could I even call myself a food blogger any longer? Would funfetti cake get the best of me? How would our craving for all things funfetti be stilled? And what about all those sprinkles I had just bought?

Right there and then I did what all bakers do – armed myself with a sufficient amount of flour, sugar and eggs and stared funfetti in the face! [Read more…]

Funfetti Donut Muffins

 Funfetti, Donut, and Muffins. Do I need to say more? Dipped in a sweet glaze.  I die!

There’s a new muffin in town… at least new to me. I recently learned of the existence of donut muffins. Say what? A donut and a muffin combined into one? Where have you been all my life?! So it probably goes without saying that I needed to get bakin’ to make up for lost time.

I don’t even want to start thinking about all the hours of muffin-donut-eating I missed out on over the years. It would probably be too much for me to take, so let’s focus on my very first encounter with these yummies instead.

They actually remind me a lot of these baked doughnuts I made a while back. With the use of nutmeg and cinnamon that give them that unmistakable flavor of a delectable donut and with the reminiscent texture of a buttery yet light muffin, these definitely have it all.

And to top it all of, there’s sprinkles. Both inside and out. It’s the way to go. It’s delicious, fun and pretty much everything you could ask for. [Read more…]

Frosted Animal Cracker Confetti Cake Muddy Buddies

Are you ready for some more sprinkle-action today? I know I am and I have a slight suspicion that you are, too. I’ve been itching to create another Muddy Buddy recipe for you guys for a while now. Snack mixes like this one are so much fun to make – and I love trying out new flavors. There’s always something sweet and colorful being prepared in our little kitchen :).

Since making this bark a couple of weeks ago, I knew that I wanted to use cake batter infused chocolate in more ways than just one. I mean, how could I possibly refrain? Making things taste like cake and not even having to turn on the oven? It’s a brilliant concept.

Oh, and since no cake is complete without frosting, I just had to add Frosted Animal Crackers. Makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? I haven’t had those little crackers in forever and it didn’t take me very long to figure out why. You just can’t stop eating crackers shaped like elephants, hippos, and cats dipped in white and pink frosting and finished with nonpareils. I dare you. [Read more…]
