Last week I polled my email subscribers to see what they would like me to blog next. Of the 3 choices, Funfetti Birthday Cake came in first place by only 1 vote! So a Funfetti Birthday Cake it is! Don't worry though if you voted for the chocolate mille feuille or the chocolate chip cookie cake, they'll be coming up soon too!
This would have to be the quickest cake I have ever decorated with just some coloured buttercream and mini M&Ms for decorations. There were so many other ideas I had for decorating but a sick little one meant I really had to rush to get this cake done. I also cut out a mini crown using a 12.5cm crown template (which you can download for free here), because every little prince or princess deserves a little crown cake. The definition of the crown is a little lost in my creation because I used a large star icing nozzle to pipe the buttercream. I can't wait to use it again to create a cookie cake.
I used this Funfetti cake recipe I found on Pretty.Simple.Sweet's site. I chose it because it was a large recipe that would be able to make a large number or letter cake, and it had some great reviews. I used 2 x 12" square cake tins and just divided the cake batter between the 2 tins. Use a spatula to spread the cake batter over the entire base of the tins if required. It does rise nicely to give great layer heights.
Things I would do differently next time:
Here are some in progress and finished snaps of my attempt at a funfetti cake. I'd love to see yours!
