Hi guys!
Here in Aust I have never ever heard of a funfetti cake... a while back i found out about them on Cake central and so now i'm wondering if anyone has a recipe?
It is my understanding that you can get them as a box mix but due to time constraints i cannot order one online so I was thinking maybe i could just add sprinkles to a vanilla cake mix?? or is it something different than that??

thank you

Jimmies are the long, cylindrical shaped sprinkles. They come in all different colors, most commonly rainbow and chocolate. I just bought some in Christmas colors this morning to use in my wedding cake. Here's a link to a pic:

I use about two and a half tablespoons for one recipe.

I use 1/4 cup to a 9 inch layer cake (2 layers), but we like a lot of jimmies.

Yeah, I actually dumped in a ton more when I was making my 14" layer. I love sprinkles!
