I play favorites with my cake pans and my 6″ round is my favorite. They make the cutest mini cakes that yield just enough baked goods for satisfaction but not over indulgence (I have no stop button).
I made this mini funfetti cake for one of my friend’s birthdays 🙂
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/3 cup & 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg white
- 2/3 cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup & 1 Tablespoon milk
- 2 & 1/2 Tablespoons sprinkles!
- 8 Tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 1 & 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 Tablespoons milk
- 1 Tablespoon sprinkles
Beat together butter & sugar. Add vanilla and egg white and mix well. Mix in flour, baking powder, & salt. Add all of the milk and beat until smooth but don’t over mix. Stir in sprinkles. Pour batter into prepared 6″ cake pan and bake at 350*F for 30 minutes.
First, preheat the oven to 350. Spray a mini 6″ cake pan that has 2″ high sides with cooking spray. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper (trace it on a piece of parchment paper, cut it out, and fit it in). For the frosting: beat all frosting ingredients (except sprinkles); Stir in sprinkles last.
I found that this recipe makes much more frosting than actual cake (not a bad thing?) so adjust accordingly!
Also nothing says happy birthday quite like sprinkles.
