Bakery style funfetti cake

funfetti cake - bakery style
Oh yes!! we had the birthday of a very special one in our family and it really had to be the one which even the unicorns can be jealous of. So what do we choose?
Hmmmmmm …sprinkles.
Yes, it is indulgence time, a very delicate funfetti cake. No frills ..just funfetti.
 At first, I did dread baking,  it was the measurements of baking I couldn’t get my head around. Once I got my cake not to sink- thanks to the trusted baking guru and friend…Jayanthi it gave me a ton of confidence to experiment with the cake flours and mixes.
Slowly evolving, baking and trying I am now on the basic frosting.
 Today baking with my kids, we are doing a bakery style vanilla cake base ..with funfetti added and topping it up with more vanilla creme frosting to make it all so decadent. Of course, it had to be topped with loads of the colours. It is a special day!!!
This is an excellent bake for a celebration. Check out this texture, perfect without any gadget to help you out in the kitchen.
 We had no trouble polishing off the cake,Hope you enjoy making it  and loving it too.

Vanilla cake with fresh cream and funfetti—that is temptation to the max. I recently baked vanilla muffins with sprinkles in it and my neighbors loved it. Even as adults we enjoy things like sprinkles as it brings back childhood memories.
