Vanilla Cake filled with lots and lots of confetti and frosted with whipped vanilla buttercream.
Yesterday was the last day of term at Esme’s school and they had a class party. Whoop! Whoop! summer holidays have began. I don’t even know why i am cheering, it isn’t like i have the whole summer off. I’m working. *sheds tears*. Esme moves on to key stage two, year 3 . That is the older children part of the school. *sheds more tears* my baby is getting bigger. I hope in year 3 she doesn’t think she’s too grown to be giving me cuddles.
I have always been a fun of confetti cake after seeing lots on the internet.Some of my favs are Sweetapolita’s Funfetti Layer Cake, Love and olive oil’s Frosted Vanilla Cake , Live love Sugars Funfetti Cake Batter Ice Cream Cake and Baked Bree Funfetti Cake. There is something about confetti or sprinkles or funfetti that makes me want to celebrate. No celebration is complete without confetti. So i jumped the opportunity when i got the note saying end of term class party please bring drinks and snacks i just knew i had to make a vanilla cake filled with lots of confetti.
Now this cake is a moist vanilla cake frosted with whipped vanilla buttercream. I made this cake using my go to vanilla cake recipe only this time i tried the reverse creaming method instead of using the traditional cream butter and sugar first method. Reverse creaming is where you cream the dry ingredients with butter then add the wet ingredients. This method i must say is super easy and still produces a moist and fluffy cake. And for the frosting i made a whipped vanilla buttercream which tastes just like icecream.
