pink velvet funfetti cake

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

making this cake was a little weird because i didn’t have access to the right kind of sprinkles! (i had the right kind, but only in halloween colors.) we are headed to a family wedding on paul’s birthday this year, so i wanted to surprise him early with a cake when we have friends over for dinner. only problem was that i could only shop for ingredients and make the cake once he went to bed last night at 11pm. so, grocery stores were closed and i headed to walgreens instead! all they had was funfetti icing (vanilla icing + a container of sprinkles on top). awesome, but when i got home i realized that it was only about 1/4 cup of sprinkles and they recipe called for 2/3 cup. grabbed whatever i could find, including some weird red sprinkles that turned the whole cake pink– didn’t like that, so i added about 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder to the mix. then just chocolate icing, vanilla icing for the text, and peanut butter M&Ms to decorate on top. finally got to bed at 2:15am!

so, that leaves us with “pink velvet funfetti” cake. i will post an update later with what the cake looks like when we cut into it! : P

anyways, here is the recipe.  i essentially followed the recipe, but used almond milk instead of regular milk, added fewer sprinkles, added red crystal sprinkles that basically melted into red food dye, and added about 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder.
