Servings: 16

Prep Time: 70 min.

Cook Time: 28-31 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 box (18.25 oz.) yellow cake mix
  • 2 cans (12 oz. each) whipped vanilla frosting
  • Purple, sky blue, lemon yellow, orange, and pink food coloring

Supplies

  • Sprinkle Cake Template
Tip: Check your market for a package of plastic frosting bags. To fill one, fold the top half down, holding the bottom with one hand. With the other hand, and using a large spoon, scoop frosting into it. Unfold the bag. To use the bag, hold at the top and push down using a twisting motion.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions and divide the batter evenly between the pans. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean; about 28 to 31 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for 10 minutes. Invert the pans and cool the cake layers completely.

  2. Step 2

    Tint one can of the vanilla frosting a pale blue. Spoon 1 cup of vanilla frosting into a resealable bag. Tint 1/2 cup of the remaining vanilla frosting violet and spoon it into a resealable bag. Divide the remaining frosting into four small bowls and tint these orange, pink, yellow, and bright blue. Spoon each of these into a resealable bag.

  3. Step 3

    Trim the tops of cakes to make them level. Place one cake layer on a serving platter and spread 1/2 cup of the light-blue frosting on top. Arrange the second cake layer on top. Cover the entire cake with a smooth layer of the remaining light-blue frosting. Refrigerate the cake for 30 minutes to firm it.

  4. Step 4

    Cut out Sprinkles and place the template lightly on top of the chilled cake. Mark Sprinkles outline with a toothpick.

  5. Step 5

    Snip a 1/4-inch corner from vanilla-frosting bag, pipe the outline of Sprinkles, and then fill in the outline. Carefully spread the frosting to make it smooth.

  6. Step 6

    Mark Sprinkle's spots and other features with a toothpick, using the tmeplate as a reference. Snip small corners from remaining frosting bags and pipe the outlines and details with the colored frosting. Pipe dots around the cake with any of the remaining frosting.

Tip: Let kids mix the icings as you add the color. They will love to watch the white icing turn into different shades right before their eyes!
