Generally, funfetti cake has vanilla buttercream frosting on top. However, in some cases, it may have cream cheese frosting or whipped cream topping on top. Oftentimes, the frosting is also topped with rainbow sprinkles as well.

Step By Step Instructions

funfetti box cake recipe

Step one: preheat the oven and prepare cake pan and cupcake tin

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, line your 15x10x1-inch pan with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray and place six cupcake liners in the cupcake tin.

Step two: beat the eggs

In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat all six eggs on high speed for approximately six minutes. After six minutes, the eggs should be thick and lemon in color.

Step two: add cake mix, water, and oil

With the mixer now at low speed, add your cake mix, water, and oil. Beat the mixture together at low speed for 30 seconds and then at medium speed for one minute.

Step three: divide up the batter and bake

Pour three and a half cups of batter into your 15x10x1-inch pan and pour the remaining batter into the six cupcake liners. Bake the cake and cupcakes for 14-16 minutes or until they spring back when touched.

Step four: roll the cake

After removing the cake from the oven, immediately turn it over onto a clean tea towel that is sprinkled with powdered sugar and remove the parchment paper. While it is still hot, carefully roll the cake with the tea towel from the narrow end.

Cool the rolled-up cake for 10 minutes at room temperature before transferring it to the fridge for one hour. Allow the six cupcakes to cool on a wire rack.

Step five: prepare the buttercream

In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat together the butter and powdered sugar at low speed. Next, beat in the vanilla and one tablespoon of milk until smooth and creamy. If needed, add one more tablespoon of milk if it is too thick or one tablespoon of powdered sugar if the frosting is too thin.

Step six: frost and form the cake

After an hour, remove the cake from the fridge and carefully unroll it. Then, spread a layer of buttercream frosting and carefully roll the cake back up, and cover it with plastic wrap. Return the cake to the fridge for 30 minutes and add a layer of frosting to the cupcakes and top with rainbow sprinkles.

Step eight: decorate the cake

After 30 minutes, remove the cake from the fridge and cover it with the remaining frosting. Next cover the entire outside of the roll cake with rainbow sprinkles. Serve both the roll cakes and cupcakes.

Tips And Tricks

When turning the cake out onto the tea towel, it must be done right out of the oven for best results. By rolling the cake while it is still hot will help prevent any cracks from forming. Be sure to also sprinkle powdered sugar on the tea towel to prevent it from sticking.

By beating the eggs for a whole six minutes, you can help ensure the cake will have a spongy texture. Not only will the spongy texture taste delicious, but it will also make it easier to roll the cake.

Store the roll cake and cupcakes in an airtight container at room temperature for up the two to three days. In addition, the cake and cupcakes can last for up to one week in the fridge in an airtight container.
