  • 2 ¾ c. flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 ½ sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 c. sugar
  • ½ c. vegetable oil
  • 5 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1 c. milk
  • 3 tbsp. Sprinkles, not nonpareils, plus more for topping
  • 1 ½ sticks butter
  • c. milk
  • 4 ½ c. powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • 1 tbsp. Vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. Almond extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9X13 rectangular casserole dish with baking spray.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium-sized bowl. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the butter, add the sugar, and blend until fluffy. Add the vegetable oil and add the eggs one at a time adding each one after the egg has been well mixed. Add the vanilla extract. Alternate between the flour mixture and milk until well mixed. Finally, fold in the sprinkles. Pour in the cake batter and bake for 25-30 minutes until the cake is baked in the middle. Once baked, allow the cake to cool slightly.
  3. In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter and add the milk and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, and whisk the powdered sugar until there are no lumps. Add the salt, vanilla, and almond extract. Allow it to cool for 5 minutes and pour it on top of the cake. Immediately sprinkle with extra sprinkles, allow the icing to set, and serve as desired.
