A Sprinkle Cake is a ridiculous but super fun excuse to make a colorful, sugary, sticky, mess all over your kitchen. A Sprinkle Cake can probably be any kind of cake, but ours was a basic vanilla cake that was then frosted and smothered (and we do mean smothered) in sprinkles.
For the fun of it.
We saw Sprinkle Cakes on Pinterest and thought they were just adorable. Some were even made as wedding cakes–amazingly well done, SO colorful, and tons of fun!
We used 8″ cake pans, thinking the smaller size might use less sprinkles. Until another one is made, the jury is still out on that, but I, for one, can’t wait to make another one of these. The little round sprinkles are called Nonpareils. We used the longer, softer sprinkles called Jimmies.
This is pretty basic. Here we go:
- Bake a cake.
- Frost the cake.
- Put the cake on a tray to catch some (haha) of the sprinkles. Seriously, there is no super tidy way to do this.
- Get the sprinkles on there any which way you can. Throw ’em. Make a pile and roll ’em up the sides. Pour ’em and pat ’em onto the top.
Carefully tilt the cake and sprinkleNo–don’t do that–keep it upright.
- Keep this up until your cake is covered as thick as you’d like it to be.
- Clean up. 😀
