  • 1 tablespoon baking powder aluminum free
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup salted butter room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4-6 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup sprinkles

Instructions 

MAKE THE CAKE:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 13×9 baking pan by spraying with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together until fluffy (1-2 minutes).
  • Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition.
  • Add vanilla. Then, with mixer running on low, alternately add milk and dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  • Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake 35-45 minutes until the center of the cake springs back when you touch it.
  • Let the cake cool completely before frosting.

MAKE THE FROSTING:

  • In a stand mixer bowl, with the mixer on medium speed, whip the butter for 2 minutes until it is almost white in color. Make sure the butter is at room temperature, but not melted.
  • Add in the powdered sugar, vanilla and 3 tablespoons cream. Beat on low speed for 3-5 minutes, adding in the last tablespoon or two of milk if the buttercream needs to be thinner.
  • Fold in the sprinkles.
  • Spread on cooled cake and sprinkle with additional sprinkles if desired.
