Homemade Funfetti Cake

homemade funfetti cake rainbow sprinkles

Last Wednesday was Cakentine’s Day, and the celebration is still going strong here on Lulu the Baker! We’ve been trying out lots of different cake recipes lately, and I’ve got a few of our recent favorites to share with you this week. First up is Homemade Funfetti Cake. I love funfetti cake–it’s colorful and cute–but store bought mixes always taste really fake to me. Luckily, funfetti cake is really easy to make from scratch! I started with my favorite white cake recipe, added some rainbow sprinkles for color, and finished with a tasty topping of cream cheese frosting. Delicious! You can find the full recipe on this Design to Dish post I wrote for Julep earlier in the month.

I accidentally typed “cakentine’s” into my phone and autocorrect, being the awesome…

Mini Grasshopper Icebox Cakes

I’m a huge fan of elegant shortcuts, things that seem like you went to lots of trouble preparing, but really threw together in just a few minutes. Icebox cakes are a perfect example. They have very few ingredients and only take about 30 minutes to make, but they look really fancy when they’re plated up,…
