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?
I have thrown sprinkles into cake mix many times. You need about a heaping tablespoonful and gently mix them into your batter.
Then to add to my dumbness...I am assuming that would be just regular jimmies? No specific type...rainbow ones of course...correct?
yea I put rainbow Jimmy sprinkles in my cake mix when I need funfetti cake mix and I dont have one.
yup, regular jimmies. I like to do a specific color rather than rainbow to go with the exterior cake decoration.
that's a neat idea...thanks!
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
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!
Ok for an english cousin, what the hell is a confetti cake and what the hell are jimmies?
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.
Ok thank you x
