Celebrate a special birthday with this Sprinkle Birthday Cake. This deliciously moist white cake is frosted with homemade buttercream, topped with chocolate ganache drips and is decorated with lots of rainbow colored sprinkles.
Any birthday girl or boy, no matter their age, will love this festive birthday cake.
The three layers of made-from-scratch white cake are filled with creamy homemade buttercream frosting. You can add as many colorful sprinkles to the outside cake as you like but be sure to leave room for some yummy chocolate ganache drips at the top.
I love a good white cake, actually more than I like chocolate cake, which seams strange considering my affinity for chocolate. So for this recipe, I tried out quite a few white cake recipes until I found the one that produced the best flavor and texture.
The cake is moist and tender just as you'd hope and when layered with homemade buttercream it's really flavorful. I added a splash of almond extract to both the cake and frosting but you can always swap out vanilla if you prefer.
Being I do love chocolate so much, I decided the cake needed a bit of that too so I added some drips of chocolate ganache for looks and flavor.
