Have I ever told you how Funfetti Sheet Cake tickles my soul?
This easy Funfetti Sheet Cake is a perfect and easy cake for birthdays or other events.
Okay, so I have a slight obsession with a box. A box that makes everything better on a dark day or season. I am talking about a box that will bring out the child in anyone. It is the box that you can find in your local grocery store in the baking aisle that says “Funfetti”. I see you smiling :-)! Doesn’t Funfetti just make you happy! I don’t do a lot of boxed desserts but I will make a Funfetti cake in a heartbeat! I don’t know why I love that particular flavor but it makes my heart happy. Let me tell you what I use to do to myself before I knew better.
When I was in college, I had a lot bad eating habits. When I went to the grocery store, I use to get 3 candy bars, Snickers, Reese’s Cup, and Butterfinger, along with a Sprite. The meal of champions right?! For breakfast, I use to eat brownies and Funfetti Cake, with a glass of orange juice of course. In my mind, I thought if I would eat a donut for breakfast, then it would be totally acceptable for me to eat a slice of cake. Do you see the comparison? You have the bread part, which is the donut itself and then you have the icing, which is like the glaze on a donut. Totally acceptable! How I knew this was bad was because before the day was over, I ended up eating like 3-4 slices of cake (donuts). That isn’t cool. But that is how much I love Funfetti. God Bless Pillsbury for making such a fun and delicious dessert.
Just like with anything, if it comes in a box, there is a good chance that you can make it from scratch on your own. The box just takes away the extra steps and prep that is involved. Well, I found an awesome Funfetti Cake recipe ( I turned into a Funfetti Sheet Cake) on the Food Network website and decided to make it into a sheet cake with an amazing buttercream sheet cake frosting. This way makes the cake a little informal and opens for interpretation because you can make this for your kids birthday ( I am totally making this for my son’s birthday) and allow them to add whatever colored sprinkles or toppings they want. This is also a good potluck dessert. I know you can go get the box and make the cake that way, but I am telling you that, although I love the box cake, there is something about making a cake from scratch that gives the cake that extra something that you won’t find in a box of any kind.
