confetti cake

We’re back with bake number 58 from Claire Saffitz’s Dessert Person. This latest recipe from the Layer Cakes & Fancy Desserts chapter of the book was a homemade spin on the classic funfetti boxed cake mix, Claire’s Confetti Cake. Since it uses a reverse creaming method (start with dry ingredients, then add butter, sugar, and end with eggs), you get a slightly denser, crumblier texture. Although we both prefer a fluffier cake, the flavour of this was delicious and nostalgic. Paired with the Cream Cheese Frosting, one of the book’s Foundational Recipes, and speckled with bright rainbow sprinkles, it was an eye-catching and really enjoyable bake. Both of us used our cakes to celebrate some special birthdays: Lauren’s cake was shared in honour of her brother-in-law, and Julia’s was part of a 70th birthday celebration for a family friend!
