Is there any other way to celebrate a birthday than with butter, sugar, and sprinkles?? If there is, I don’t want to know about it. I’m happy here in my world of buttercream dreams and I don’t need that anti-sprinkle negativity in my life. 

And while I’m ranting, has anyone else noticed the lack of sheet cake love these days?  Sure round cakes are gorgeous and perhaps slightly more artistic, but they are hard to serve and the frosting-to-cake-ratio is way off….generally speaking of course. 

This cake, though…Built to serve a crowd, and smothered in perfectly smooth buttercream frosting. Twice. That’s right, there are two 9×13-inch layers of confetti cake each topped with a thick layer of frosting.

Whip out that star-tipped piping bag for a classic birthday cake feel.  Oh and don’t forget the sprinkles! Here I mixed several sizes of sprinkles in the same primary color palette for a little more interest.  

The birthday boy loved this colorful vanilla cake almost as much as the performance of The Happy Birthday Song sung by guests.
