Table Talk Tuesday - Rice Krispie and Funfetti Birthday Cake (From How To Cake It)

Hello, hello!!

Welcome back to A Mascara Moment!!

My son turned 2 last week and I made him a four layer funfetti and rice krispie birthday cake.  It looked impressive and tasted delicious.  I already have requests to make it again!

I got the cake recipe from the YouTube channel How To Cake It. 

I followed the instructions and everything turned out perfectly, although a bit unexpectedly.  My cake did not look like Yolanda's but that is okay.  I thought it was great and when my son saw it he said "Woooow!"  That made it all worth it.


Wilton Jumbo Sprinkles**
  • 2 cups Unsalted Butter
  • 4 cups Sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 8 Eggs
  • 2 cups Whole Milk
  • 5 cups Flour
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp. plus 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 cup Jumbo Sprinkles - I used Wilton Brand **

Baking Instructions

It took me an entire day to make this and put it together.  You might want to bake the cake and make the Rice Krispies the day before and then set it up the next day!

Preheat oven to 350F.

Add the flour, salt and baking powder into a small bowl and mix together.

Cream the room temperature butter, sugar and vanilla until it is pale and smooth.

Add eggs to the butter/sugar mixture and mix until blended.

Add the dry ingredients and milk to the butter/sugar/egg mixture.  Alternate between the two starting and ending with dry.

Mix each round until just blended and scrape down the bowl.  The mixture is going to be very, very thick, more like icing then cake.

I used a 8" spring form cake pan.  I lined the bottom with parchment and the cakes came out very easily.

Divide the batter in half and pour into the pans.  Add 1/4 cup of sprinkles to each pan and gently fold it in, so the sprinkles don't dissolve.

Bake for 1 hour or until the middle is set and a toothpick comes out clean.  The exterior of the cake got pretty dark, but the interior remained moist.  This cake is dense and I think it is specifically formulated for doing these mega stacking cakes.  If you are looking for a fluffy cake recipe, this is not it!

While it is baking...

Prepare one recipe of Rice Krispie squares.  Recipe here.

Divide the amount between two 8" cake pans.  Line the bottom of the pan with jumbo sprinkles and then add more jumbo sprinkles to the top and press down into the rice krispie mixture.

Let harden.

Assembly Instructions

For assembly, please refer to the experts at How To Cake It!  I tried to explain it out here and it didn't make any sense.

The assembly was easy, but I found that I wasn't type A enough to make it look super perfect.  I went with a more rustic, impressionist style (lol)

I think it turned out pretty cool!!  It was so good.  I ate most of the leftovers myself!

Kids parties are so fun!  You get to make these really fun, not serious cakes for a change.

I am already thinking about what to make for his 3rd birthday!  I have a strong feeling it might be this cake again!!

Take care and I will talk to you tomorrow.
