What Makes This Pinworthy?

So, a question most people would have is why should they make this cake from scratch when it is far easier to make the boxed cake mix version? Trust us, we were skeptical about this too- until we actually tried the cake. It was absolute perfection and one of the best cakes we’ve ever had. The end result seemed like it had come from a bakery, and everyone who ate it agreed that this cake was rave-worthy. Yes, this cake might take longer to prepare, but it is absolutely worth it- we will never buy a box of funfetti cake mix ever again.

Although this cake might take a bit of time to prepare, Sally’s Baking Addiction makes it an easy task- she gives precise yet easy-to-follow instructions that ensure that the cake turns out perfectly. Never leveled, crumb coated, or frosted a layer cake before? Check out the “Improve Your Skills” section in this post for the same videos Pinworthy Kitchen used to learn how to do these tasks.

This recipe is versatile in that not only does it make for a fantastic funfetti cake, but it can also produce wonderful funfetti cupcakes. Simply scoop the batter into the wells of a prepared muffin pan, place the pan in the oven, and bake the cupcakes until an inserted toothpick comes out dry- just be sure to modify the bake time accordingly.
