Have you heard of Funfetti cake? It's a special kind of cake mix that has sprinkles in the mix to make the inside of the cake look like confetti.
If you would like a Funfetti cake, but don't have any Funfetti cake mix, here is how you can make your own:
- Use a plain old white cake mix. You can use store bought, but sometimes we make our own.
- After the batter is all mixed up, and just before you put it in the oven, add in a quarter cup of the oblong rainbow sprinkles. Make sure you use the oblong sprinkles. The little balls don't work nearly as well.
See? It looks just like a cake made with the store bought Funfetti cake mix.
