Sprinkle Cake

Hi there,

This is a three tier sprinkle cake I made for Liberty’s birthday. I thoroughly enjoyed making it!

Wasn’t sure about which wallpaper choose to take the pictures and I used both :- ) Which one do you like the most?

I used three round 8″-6″-4″ cakes (between 4″-5″ tall), and despite there were loads of sprinkles, I just used around 270 grams to cover the three of them! I had bought 2 kilos of nonpareils because I wasn’t sure about the amount I would be using, lol. I still have enough to make more similar cakes and also topping some cupcakes! Anyway, it’s always better to work with more sprinkles than you need and then remove and keep the excess.

Under the sprinkles, I just used buttercream. A firm and cold crumb coat to get sharp edges and then a final thin coat to stick the sprinkles to the cake.

Hope these tips help!

Have a nice, sweet and colourful week!
