Now, let's dive into this delightful journey of flavors and birthday magic with a step-by-step guide to making this whimsical Funfetti Waffle Birthday Cake:


For the Funfetti Waffle Cake:

- 2 cups all-purpose flour (for that perfect cake texture)

- 1 cup granulated sugar (for a touch of sweetness)

- 2 teaspoons baking powder (to make those waffles rise like magic)

- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (for the perfect balance)

- 1/4 teaspoon salt (to bring out all those flavors)

- 3/4 cup buttermilk (for a moist and tender crumb)

- 1/2 cup unsalted butter (melted and ready for some magic!)

- 2 large eggs (because eggs are the secret to a perfect cake)

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (for that irresistible aroma)

- 1/3 cup colorful sprinkles (because Funfetti

is all about the fun!)

For the Funfetti Buttercream Frosting:

- 1 cup unsalted butter (softened and ready to be whipped)

- 3 cups powdered sugar (for that creamy sweetness)

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (to enhance the flavor)

- 2 tablespoons milk (for that perfect consistency)

- Extra sprinkles for decorating (because you can never have too many sprinkles!)


1. Preheat your waffle maker. Yes, you read that right - we're making a cake in a waffle maker for extra fun!

2. In a big, beautiful mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and a pinch of salt. Let's create that cake magic right from the start!

3. In another bowl, combine the buttermilk, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Give it all a good whisk until it's smooth and creamy.

4. Now, it's time to combine the wet and dry ingredients. Slowly pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients, and gently fold it all together until you get a smooth and luscious batter. And don't forget the best part - fold in those colorful sprinkles for that extra dose of fun!

5. Once your waffle maker is nice and hot, scoop the batter into the waffle maker (about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of batter per waffle). Close the lid and let the magic happen! Keep an eye on those waffles as they turn golden brown and fill your kitchen with the most delightful aroma.

6. While your waffle cake layers cool, let's work on that dreamy Funfetti Buttercream Frosting. In a mixing bowl, whip the softened butter until it's light and fluffy. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk, and beat it all together until you have the creamiest, most heavenly frosting.

7. Time to assemble the magic! Place one waffle cake layer on a cake stand or plate, and generously frost the top with the Funfetti Buttercream. Repeat this with the other layers until you have a beautiful waffle cake tower.

8. And now, for the grand finale - decorate your Funfetti Waffle Birthday Cake with even more colorful sprinkles! Because a celebration is all about spreading joy and happiness.
