I love this cake.
Let’s say it again: I LOVE this cake. This cake was inspired by this fabulous cake. My mother saw it online and asked for the same cake, but in pink!
The outside of this tall cake is absolutely covered in rainbow sprinkles. I took all the nonpareils in the sprinkle drawer and mixed them together to make a huge bowl of rainbow sprinkles.
And the inside is even more special! Six layers of pink ombre fade, each a bit more pink than the last.
Creamy white frosting inside.
Pink cake and sprinkles, what more could you ask for? I served this cake with fresh juicy strawberries. I soaked the berries in juice and sugar, then dumped them on top of everyone’s slices. It was the perfect finish!
Just be careful when adding the sprinkles…it’s a little hard to get them to stick to the sides and there were sprinkles bouncing all over my kitchen floor as I was throwing them at the cake trying to get them to stick.
This cake was made for Mother’s Day, but it would be fabulous as a birthday cake or as a graduation cake if done in school colors.
Or any type of celebration cake, really. It’s quite festive and I think I’m going to be using this decorating technique quite a bit.
Maybe I should buy some more sprinkles.
