How to make Funfetti Cake at home?

Funfetti Cake recipe with step by step pictures- Vanilla cake with pretty sprinkles, frosted with smooth and silky buttercream, and dressed with colorful sprinkles, is Funfetti Cake. Funfetti Cake is very easy and simple to make. And the best part is that it looks so gorgeous that it can easily make up for a birthday cake or a cake for celebrations. You do not have to be a pro to make this cake. The funfetti cake is absolutely moist and soft. Did I mention it is an eggless cake? Yes. Although the eggs have been replaced, you do not need any special ingredients to make this cake from scratch. And the result is absolutely perfect Funfetti cake.

Ingredients for Funfetti Cake

Flour: All-purpose flour has been used. You can use a combination of all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour, but the texture of the cake would definitely vary. It will not be as soft and moist.

Sugar: I have used granulated white sugar to make Funfetti cake. You can use a combination of white and brown sugar. Brown sugar makes the cake moister and helps it remain moist.

Oil: Flavorless oil is added. Instead, you can use melted butter. If using salted butter, do not use salt.

Baking powder and baking soda: These leavening agents are combined with yogurt and act as an egg replacer.

Vanilla Essence: The cake has been flavored with everyone’s favorite vanilla essence. I had essence therefore I have used the same. If you have vanilla extract, use that. However, you would need just a few drops of the same as it is very concentrated.

Sprinkles: Sprinkles are added in the cake as well as sprinkles are used to dress up the cake. You can use any of your choices. I like to use vermicelli sprinkles. Further I would suggest do not use large and too hard sprinkles. Use tiny ones. Also, make sure that the sprinkles you use do not bleed the color. Otherwise, you will end up messing up the color of your cake and frosting.

Butter Cream Frosting: Butter and icing sugar combined in the ratio of 1:4 makes one of the best frostings for cakes!  And the same has been used for this recipe.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
