Confetti Celebration Cake

Confetti Celebration Cake

Celebrate with an easy-mix cake that gets its wow from candy sprinkles and squiggles of decorator icing.

Ingredients

  • 1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 (1.75 ounce) bottle Betty Crocker® Decors rainbow mix candy sprinkles
  • 1 (1 pound) container Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
  • 2 to 4 different colors Betty Crocker® decorating icing (in 4.25-ounce tubes)

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease bottoms only of 2 (8-inch or 9-inch) round cake pans with shortening (do not spray with cooking spray).
  2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and egg whites with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Reserve 1 tablespoon candy sprinkles for decoration.
  3. Stir remaining sprinkles into batter. Pour into pans.
  4. Bake 8-inch rounds 27 to 32 minutes, 9-inch rounds for 23 to 28 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
  5. Cool for 10 minutes.
  6. Run knife around sides of pans to loosen cakes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  7. Place 1 cake layer, rounded side down, on serving plate. Spread 1/3 cup frosting over layer.
  8. Top with second layer, rounded side up. Frost side and top of cake with remaining frosting.
  9. Decorate top edge of cake with decorating icing in random squiggly pattern, overlapping colors.
  10. Sprinkle reserved candy sprinkles over top of cake.

High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Use 9-inch pans. Bake for 28 to 33 minutes.

Special Touch: Enclose a sprinkle of brightly colored confetti in your party invitation. Scatter the same confetti on your dining or serving table, too.
