My dream birthday cake -- layers of luscious Funfetti cake sandwiched around fluffy bubblegum icing and SMOTHERED in sprinkles!
Ingredients
  • 1 box Funfetti cake mix
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 & ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 small box sugar free/fat free vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 1 tub Cool Whip Lite (or you could use the Cool Whip Frosting in Vanilla--I did!), thawed
  • 1 pkt Duncan Hines Bubblegum Frosting Creations
  • Sprinkles and non-pareils
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease two 6" cake pans (the small circular ones, available at Michael's) with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the cake mix, egg whites, water and applesauce with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. Stir in the pudding mix to combine. Pour the batter evenly between the two greased pans. Place the pans on top of a rimmed baking sheet to catch any spillover.
  3. Bake for approx. 25 minutes or until lightly golden and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out mostly clean. Cool the cakes about 30 minutes before gently inverting onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Very carefully, saw each cake in half evenly. Place one half on your cake stand or plate. Meanwhile, gently combine the bubblegum flavor packet into the Cool Whip to blend. Slather a generous Tablespoon or so on top of the layer. Cover with another layer, then frost. Repeat two more times until you have four tiers with frosting in between three of them.
  5. Frost the remainder of the cake in an even layer. Smother immediately with sprinkles. The more, the freaking merrier, y'all. Eat up! Store this puppy airtight, in the fridge, for a couple days or so... assuming it lasts that long, which would kinda be criminal.
