Sprinkle Cake DIY

By Kelsey Nixon

Who doesn’t love a cake made from scratch?! But when it comes to frosting it, things can get a bit frustrating. So in my opinion, the easiest way to decorate a cake is with sprinkles! Not only is it a foolproof way to finish off a cake, it also makes quite the celebratory statement, and it’s just so fun. I’ve learned that there is more than one way to sprinkle a cake (and unfortunately most methods result in a few extra sprinkles scattered about the kitchen). If you’re working with a larger layer cake, I’m a fan of the “pat” method – if it’s a smaller cake without layers, I recommend the “roll” method. Layer cakes tend to be more fragile, so while the “pat” method is a bit more tedious, there’s no chance your layers will shift. Smaller cakes or any cake that doesn’t have layers are sturdier and better suited for the quicker “roll” method. Regardless of your chosen method, one thing is for sure – cakes just seem happier when dressed in sprinkles! (PS – Check out the sprinkle cake in my first cookbook!)

Happy 4th of July! We decided to make a twist on the flag cake this year, making this America Cake was really easy. We made some sheet cakes then, we used a template to cut out the shape of the U.S. You can decorate it any way you want – I like incorporating blueberries or strawberries since they’re in season. Enjoy!
