Confetti Cake

Confetti Cake


Sometimes I just really have a hankering for cake.  Confetti Cake is my favorite and my girls LOVE adding all the sprinkles to the batter.  This is just as easy as making a box mix and the flavors are so perfect.  And the frosting far out shines the canned frosting.

Lets talk about the Rainbow Chip frosting that is sold in stores.  I cannot find it anywhere locally and it makes me want to cry a little (or a lot!)  I used to snack on that by the spoonful.  I got so excited to make kids birthday cakes just so I could slather on the delicous frosting.  So, if you know where to find it, mail me some please 🙂
