Gluten Free  Funfetti Cake

What is Funfetti Cake?

Funfetti cake originated in the late 80s, as a classic white cake recipe with a special twist – rainbow sprinkles! Since then, colorful “confetti” cake has become a staple at birthday parties and celebrations.  The vanilla flavor of a funfetti cake is sweet and milky, with a richer texture thanks to buttermilk.

Make the Batter

Combine dry and wet ingredients separately, adding the eggs into the wet ingredients one at a time. 

Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk until just combined.

Make the Batter

Add the Sprinkles

Gently fold the rainbow sprinkles into the cake batter.

Fill the Cake Pans

Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared pans. Make sure there are no air bubble in the batter!


Bake the cakes in a 350°F oven until they’re set in the center. Don’t forget to rotate the pans about halfway through the baking time.

Assemble & Frost

Once the cakes have cooled completely, place one cake layer on top of the other with a generous layer of frosting in between


Frost or decorate your funfetti cake in any way your heart desires!
