You may already know that I am a big fan of “Small Batch” recipes. I have made many mini batches of cupcakes and cookies. Now, you might wonder why would I want to make a mini recipe when I can make a regular recipe and have even more delicious baked goods? It’s because sometimes a little of something wonderful is better than a lot of something regular. Everything happens for a reason, so when my Bold Bakers requested a Mini Funfetti Cake recipe AND KitchenAid released their KitchenAid Artisan Mini Stand Mixer then it was a no brainer what I was going to do. Ever since trying my first funfetti cake I was hooked. I had never had it until moving to the US. This Mini Funfetti Cake recipe is based on my favorite Birthday cake recipe. It is moist and just gets better with age. But due to its mini size I don’t think there will be much left overs. A bonus in my mini kitchen is that is that this mixer can live on my countertop because it fits snugly under my cupboards. It is a quarter the size of your regular KitchenAid Stand Mixer but it has the exact same engine and power that you are used to. So you save on space but you still get the same power. This cake is a perfect token to share with someone on their Birthday. I think it actually might be even more special because technically they don’t have to share because it’s not big, and it is their birthday so …. This Mini Funfetti Cake is loaded with sprinkles and beautiful color, I hope you enjoy this cake for your celebrations. I can’t think of an occasion where it wouldn’t be a welcomed addition to the party Just a note, the Holidays are around the corner and it’s never too early to starting building your list, and letting Santa know what you really want.

Add sifted powdered sugar one spoonful at a time until all the sugar has been incorporated. Now add in your food coloring (if desired) and milk. Increase to high speed and beat for 3 minutes until your frosting is light and fluffy.Assemble your cakeLevel your cakes by carving off any bumps on the top of your cake. This will make it nice and even. Using a palette knife, spread some frosting on one side of cake to create the filling. Lay the other cake on top and spread more frosting on top. With your palette knife, run it around the filling coming out the sides of the cake to create a smear of frosting to give it a rustic look. This is a "naked" cake so you don’t need to decorate it all over.Decorate with some more sprinkles around the top of the cake.Enjoy straight away or store at room temperature for up to 4 days.
