Homemade funfetti cake recipe for two. Small sprinkles cake for two.
If ever there was a cake that I could eat all by myself, this is it. Homemade funfetti cake for two.
I mean, sure, my chocolate fudge cake was eaten in a span of 4 hours, but I had help on that one. And this cinnamon red hot apple mini cake that the world forgot about was taken down by one fork, mostly.
But this homemade funfetti cake. This cake could have been all mine. If I didn't have a husband who was supposed to be at the driving range until late, it could have happened. I somehow miscalculated, and thought he'd be home later than usual. I thought I would have more time alone with the sprinkles. Like lovers driven apart, we are.
How to make a small homemade funfetti cake:
When I posted my little guide to the 3 pans you need for small batch baking, my 6" round cake pan was the most talked about. You guys love my mini cakes! That makes me so happy, friends! I love mini cakes, too! I mean, we all love cake, but we all don't have 4 sticks of spare butter and 4 hours to make a normal 3-layer cake, ya know? Making mini cakes is a great way to get a little bite of cake in your day, everyday, with minimal effort!
Whenever I make a normal-sized cake, I have to set aside an entire afternoon to do it. My mini cakes, however, can be baked up during nap time! Even on days when a baby that normally takes two 2-hour naps a day is suddenly, randomly, and inexplicably taking 40-minute naps ONLY. I mean, I'm not bitter about it or anything, and that's definitely not me googling all about 11-month sleep regression patterns. Ugh. Do you see that little finger swipe in the frosting in the upper left most piece of cake? The baby who stopped taking long naps did it.
I pulled this out of the oven just as baby was waking up. Do you think she was dreaming about cake? She's never had cake...
I frosted it while she watched. Every time the camera beeped, she stared to watch the photo preview pop up. It was kinda cute.
She was being extra cute, and I kinda felt bad for not letting her have any cake.
But, she's been on this earth just barely longer than she was in my belly. She has a whole lifetime to eat cake. I, however, only have so many years left, so I better eat this whole cake right now.
Please leave me be with my lover, k? Thanks, bye.
