What would be a good white cake recipe to use for a funfetti tasting cake? I was thinking of just a white cake recipe and adding some sprinkles for the confetti affect.

I will be using this for a topsy turvy cake.

Or is there anything I can do with the box mix that will make it more durable and not so crumbly.

i wouldnt use a regular box mix for a topsy turvy (i think thats what your planning?) - you need quite a sturdy cake that will stand up to being carved. look for the original wasc recipe, it is a bit more sturdy, but i dont know how good it is for carving. personally, my next topsy turvey will be either maderia or pound cake.
but for the funfetti cake, i would just chuck some sprinkles into the batter!

Add a 3.4oz (small box) of pudding and an extra egg to what is called for on the back of the box.

when adding the pudding, do you just add the powder?

yep, just add the powder when you mix up the cake mix!

The best tasting, most moist cake I've done with a 'funfetti' look was to use Betty Crocker French vanilla cake mix with a little less than a teaspoon of Cream Bouquet (a wonderful cake emulsion that you can buy online or in specialty cake supply stores). You would not believe what that does to the one knows it's a box cake. We used this cake for wedding cakes, carved cakes and topsy-turvy and it stands up nicely. To make it funfetti, take multi-colored sprinkles and toss them with a very small bit of the cake mix so they will not clump or sink in the cake. Very yummy with buttercream frosting.
