The Muffington Post ~ Funfetti Cake
Hello everyone! I am Mary-Morgan from The Muffington Post.
I am so excited to be part of this wonderful event in Chantilly's life! It truly is a time to celebrate, and in my opinion every celebration needs music (which Chantilly has already provided) family, good friends, drinks, and sweets!! My specialty is sweets and I want to share a homemade cake worthy of any celebration! Enjoy lovelies!! ♥
There are box mixes you can buy for any cake, but homemade cakes are simple to make. This is my version of a Funfetti cake:
Carnival Confetti Cake:

~ 6 large egg whites
~ 3/4 cup milk
~ 2 tsps. vanilla extract
~ Carousel sprinkles (about 2 hefty shakes)
