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:

♥ Ingredients: Cake:

~ 12 tblsps. (1 & 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
~ 1 & 1/2 cups sugar
~ 2 cups all-purpose flour
~ 2 tsps. baking powder
~ 1/4 teaspoon salt
~ 6 large egg whites
~ 3/4 cup milk
~ 2 tsps. vanilla extract
~ Carousel sprinkles (about 2 hefty shakes)


♥ Ingredients: Frosting:

~ 4 large egg whites
~ 3/4 cup sugar
~ pinch of salt
~ 2 sticks butter, softened, & cut into pieces

♥ Directions: Cake:

~ Preheat oven to 350 F
~ Spray 9in. springform pan with Bakers Joy.
~ In a large mixing bowl, beat butter & sugar together, about 5 minutes.
~ Stir together flour, baking powder, & salt. Set aside.
~ Combine egg whites, milk, & vanilla extract.
~ Add 1/2 flour mixture to butter mixture, then 1/2 egg mixture with butter mixture.
~ Continue to alternate & beat until smooth.
~ Toss sprinkles into cake batter & gently fold in.
~ Pour batter into prepared pan & smooth top with spatula.
~ Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted into center of cake.
~ Let cool completely.


♥ Directions: Frosting:
~ Whisk egg whites, sugar, & salt into heat proof bowl.
~ Set over saucepan of simmering water (do not let bowl touch water).
~ Simmer until the mixture is warm & the sugar dissolves.
~ Remove bowl from pan & let cool slightly.
~ Beat the egg mixture in stand mixer until stiff peaks form, about 12-15 mins.
~ Beat in the butter a few pieces at a time, then continue beating until smooth.
~ Add food coloring if you want but this is optional. You can use the frosting white or color it any color your heart desires. :)

Assembly:
~ Slice cake in half with a serrated knife.
~ Frost bottom layer, place top layer of cake on top of frosted bottom layer. Frost top & sides.
~ Decorate as you wish! I used multicolored non pareils :)
