  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line the bottom of each cake pan with parchment paper.

  • Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a medium bowl and whisk together. Set aside.

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 8 minutes.

  • Add the eggs, two at a time, beating until each addition is incorporated before adding the next. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula when necessary.

  • Add the flour mixture in four parts, alternating with the milk in three parts, beating just until each addition is incorporated before adding the next; do not overmix.

  • Fold your sprinkles into the cake batter gently - do not overmix or else the sprinkle coloring will spread. 

    TIP: use about ¼ cup of sprinkles for every 3lbs of batter (one batch of this recipe).

  • Scrape the batter into the prepared pan or pans and spread it so that it is smooth in the pan(s). Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes for the 9 x 13-inch pan or minutes for 45 minutes for the 8-inch pans, rotating the pan(s) halfway through.

  • Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely in the pan(s). Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Loosen the edges with a straight spatula, invert the pan(s) to remove the cake, and peel off the parchment.
