Funfetti Cake and Cupcakes

I know it's been a while since my last post but unfortunately we all got hit with a nasty cold bug here. I am so happy we are all healthy again!

This is of course a birthday cake. I made it for my son's birthday party ( which we held it at a local inflatables play place). I used a box funfetti cake and just added in an extra 1/4 cup of sprinkles for more color.

A homemade, bakery-style buttercream and fondant Lego pieces went on top. The kids didn't realize these weren't real and I had to tell them that, Yes...they could it them!

I also made a small 6-inch cake out of the same batter.

I had a originally planned a completely different cake, but after the week I had this was about all I could muster. And you know was just fine :)


  1. Your deserts and photos are beautiful. I am more of a entrée and main dish person et have been venturing into baking and you are a rue inspiration. What creativity!

  2. great job, M! Glad to hear you all are feeling better

  3. So beautiful! Excellent job.

    Glad everyone is feeling better.

  4. So cute! And what a compliment: the fondant legos looked so real the kids were afraid to eat them. ha! :)

  5. The cake looks great - and I bet it was delicious too!

    Hope that your little guy enjoyed his birthday party!
