Is there a way to make confetti cake out of DH mix/extender recipe? I pretty much exclusively use DH, but they do not offer a confetti cake flavor. Could it be as simple as white cake with confetti thrown/stirred in? Anyone else ever tried this? icon_cool.gif

I have thrown sprinkles into cake mix many times. You need about a heaping tablespoonful and gently mix them into your batter.
Happy Caking!

Then to add to my dumbness...I am assuming that would be just regular jimmies? No specific type...rainbow ones of course...correct?

yup, regular jimmies. I like to do a specific color rather than rainbow to go with the exterior cake decoration.

It's already been answered, but I never buy confetti mixes. I made some cupcakes for hubbys boss's daughter, and I used only pink jimmies, she loved it because pink is her favorite color, for my daughter I did only purple, for halloween orange & brown, you can make it as unique as you want. Indydebi I think it was did a wedding cake & the jimmies matched the wedding colors.

As a caution (since I did it), use the larger sprinkles/jimmies, and put them in at the end of mixing. I put small sprinkles in at the start of the process, and it turned the cake a mottled shade of pink icon_smile.gif

Thanks AmandaLP, I forgot to mention that the sprinkles should go in at the end.

I always throw the jimmies in at the end, and give the batter a whirl with a spatula. Im always worried the mixer will smear the color!

It's just a cake with 100s and 1000s/ sprinkles in the batter.

Doesn't that make the texture a bit odd?

no when the cake is baked it essentially breaks down the sprinkles and leaves the cake batter dyed with spots of color.
