Sprinkles Cake

Okay so, a long time ago my mom got a review copy of this book online called Sweetapolia Bakebook. She got the book for me because she was going to write a review about it. Well months later we hadn’t done the review yet, so when I had to bake a cake for a party mom thought, “Why not just do one of the recipes in the book?” So that is how I ended up making this cake!

Okay I admit I cheated on this one… I used a box mix, but only because we didn’t have enough cake flour and we had one of the boxes laying around. But you will need some cake batter of your choice, food dye, in the colors Pink, Orange, Blue, Turquoise, Purple, and Green, some frosting of your choice, and assorted sprinkles. Now I will say since I am a newer baker I did not have these colors of food dye laying around, so the trip to get supplies was a bit expensive.

Now you need to divide your batter into 6 bowls and dye them the colors listed above. Then you need to bake each colored cake for about 10-12 minutes because the layers of cake should be a bit thin. Let the cakes cool for about 10 minutes in the pans and then change over to a wire rack until completely cooled.

Once your cakes are all baked and cooled, you want to frost them. In the book she used turquoise frosting, so that is what I did, but I did not do as deep of a color turquoise, but don’t dye your frosting yet! I am using buttercream, so the frosting’s original color is white. Take the purple layer and put on the uncolored buttercream. Do the same next in this order on the blue, green, pink, orange, and turquoise layers. After that dye your frosting turquoise and frost the whole cake with that frosting. Put this in the fridge for about 15 minutes just so the frosting will firm up a little bit.

Now take all your sprinkles and mix them together. Once they are all mixed cover your cake with the sprinkles.

Voila! Now you are done with your cake. I just add the heart because I had some leftover frosting.

Grandaddy's birthday cake

Strawberry Sparkle Cake for Grandaddy’s Birthday

This week it was my Grandaddy’s birthday, and we invited him over for dinner.

What’s a birthday dinner without dessert?!?

I have also recently been watching Pioneer Woman.  I decided to do the Strawberry Sparkle Cake from Pioneer Woman.

We skipped a step, and just decided to get a box of angels food cake mix. We used a bunt pan. After making the cake from the mix, we had to turn the cake upside down to cool, and we used a Cream Soda bottle to do this.

The next day, we had to “edit” the cake. You need to cut a 1 inch round slice of the cake of from the top. Then you need to cut 1 inch from the inside circle, and 1 inch from the outside of the cake. You are making a trench so, don’t cut all the way to the bottom of the cake either. Next reach your fingers in there and start to pull the cake out.

Then, we got out our Strawberry Jello and frozen strawberries. The website said that we needed 2 1/2 cups of water for 3 ounces of jello. The website was wrong! On the show, which is on Netflix, Pioneer Woman said only 2 cups of water. My mom and I doubled the recipe, because we had a 6 ounce package of jello. So, we put in 5 cups of boiling water with the jello and sliced frozen strawberries. Guess what? The jello was very liquidy and wouldn’t start to thicken. I apologize for the confusing math. Finally, we added some another pack of jello mix and used a slotted spoon to add the strawberries into the trench.

Put the ring you cut of back on top of the cake, and cover the whole thing in whipped cream, my moms favorite part!

This is the finished product. We added some raspberries on the top instead of strawberries.

Hopefully, Grandaddy and you will enjoy the cake.
