Homemade Funfetti Cake


There aren’t many people that I’ve met that don’t love sprinkles. Of course there are a few that don’t like sprinkles, because ya know, there’s always at least one, lol! I’ll never understand it, because I love them. Growing up in Philadelphia, if we got an ice cream cone with sprinkles we always called them Jimmies. It’s just what you said. I don’t think people from other cities get it, but that’s okay. We’re a little different around here. 😉

Now it’s no secret that I like boxed caked mix better than cake from scratch. I was actually in my kitchen cabinet the other day and I saw a box of Funfetti cake mix and said to myself “I could really go for a piece of Funfetti cake right now!” But I decided to make it from scratch instead of from the box…just because I felt like it. So that’s exactly what I did.




Now I wanted a double layer cake, so I just doubled the recipe.  The recipe over at Sally’s Baking Addiction is just for a one layer cake. So if you want a double layer you will have to double both the cake and frosting recipes.

Now normally I always use Penzeys Double Strength Vanilla, but for this cake I used Vanilla Bean Crush. It’s a blend of intensely flavored Madagascar Bourbon and Tahitian vanilla beans.  I received it as a gift and now I’m a huge fan of this stuff.  I love that it’s flecked with finely crushed vanilla beans and vanilla bean seeds.  So if you closely you can really see the little specks of vanilla bean. The flavor it brings is amazing as well.
I thought this Funfetti Cake was pretty good, but I still love boxed cake more. 🙂 But if I was making another Funfetti Cake from scratch I’d use this recipe again. I thought that it was even better on the second day!
