this might be a silly question, but I'll ask anyway...

I want to make a funfetti cake from scratch, using my go to vanilla cake and adding some jimmies into it. Will this affect the texture of the cake? I mean, jimmies are kind of crunchy and I dont want my cake to be crunchy...

Your opinion would be greatly appriciate.

Put the jimmies in at the end of your mixing...

They just kind of melt into the cake batter as it cooks...

At least from my experience...

It doesn't affect my cake texture at all...

Depending on your cake batter they may sink/stick to the bottom sides of the pan. Make sure to grease the pan & parchment well!

Thanks a lot to both of you.

I will give it a try this weekend!

I stopped making funfetti bc the color on the sprinkles would come off and bleed into my batter as soon as I started putting them in...made my batter so ugly. It didn't matter how gently I mixed or the brand/size I used. I have no clue why bc my batter contains the same ingredients as any other homemade funfetti. I hope you don't run into this issue also.

This is exactly the (second) reason why I will do a test batch this weekend. I hope I will have more chance than you about the bleeding...
