It’s no joke this whole sprinkle fiasco. As a baker, I constantly hear and read about the sprinkle debate. Some tout them as pretty and fun. Others moan that they are narsty and insipid (at times referred to as “waxy”).
I consider sprinkles much like Grand Theft Auto. Totally tasteless, but considered a source of fun by many.
Seriously though, sprinkles are a lot less harmful than even a video game. Take that pole out of your butt. Have a drink. Have three more after that one. Make out with a ridiculously good looking person. Chill.
If you wouldn’t scream about it to a real group of breathing, talking human beings (and I mean face to face), then don’t bitch about it on the internet.
This is only part of my sprinkle collection. The demand is high, what can I say.
If glitter is the herpes of art, then sprinkles are the same for baking.
They spread everywhere. They are impossible to clean up. People can’t get rid of them no matter how hard they try.
Many sprinkles were hurt in the making of this recipe. It was beautiful. Particularly because creating your own unique marshmallow recipe out of your A$$ and incorporating cake batter flavor into them is easier than it sounds. Trickier than curing Bieber fever. I mean, I think I made about 6 or 7 batches before getting it right.
Not only do these cloud-puffs include sprinkles and cake flavor in every bite, I also managed to throw actual cake into it. Marshmallow, with delightful little bits of soft buttery cake. It’s better than a unicorn kiss.
And if you really hate sprinkles that much you can- GASP!- leave it out! I just blew someone’s mind. I also just started a sentence with the word, “and.” There, they’re, their now. No need to get so riled up. Have a fifth drink. Get a foot massage or something.
Here is What You Need for Birthday Funfetti Cake Batter Marshmallows
– Half of your favorite baked cake (specifications will be mentioned in the instructions
- 3 1/2 packs of unflavored gelatin
- 1/3 cup of cold water
– 1/3 cup of cake mix(or a vanilla flavored cake flour if cake mix creeps you out)
-1 3/4 cups of sugar
- 1/3 cup of corn syrup
- 1/3 cup of water
- 4 egg whites
– Sprinkles, a whole bunch of them
– cooking spray
– powdered sugar or corn starch
– aluminum foil
If you want funfetti cake, simply make your batter. Add some sprinkles. Mix on low.
I lined a large baking sheet with aluminum foil, sprayed and coated in flour.
Why? Because once it is baked and cooled, you want to cut it into small cubes. This way easy to flip the pan over and get the cake out. It’s up to you what type of baking pan you want to use for this.
-1 3/4 cups of sugar
– 1/3 cup of corn syrup
– 1/3 cup of water
into a pot. Attach the thermometer. Place something heat-safe nearby to grab the handle.
Line your 8×10 baking dish with aluminum foil, then spray with cooking spray and dust completely with powdered sugar or corn starch.
Drop a good amount of cake cubes along bottom of pan. Set a spatula, cake cubes, and cooking spray nearby.
*Note: I used WAY more cake cubes than pictured here. In fact, I sprinkled more cubes along the bottom of pan than seen here as well.
– 3 1/2 packs of unflavored gelatin
– 1/3 cup of cake mix
– 1/3 cup of cold water over
Mix with spoon to make sure gelatin is totally coated and moist.
Now set up your mixing area. Have egg whites in a large bowl (with whisk not shown here), a bowl of sprinkles (or not if leaving out), and the gelatin mixture should be in the mixer with spatula attachment on.
You will also want something to spoon out the last remains of the sugar mixture into the mixer.
Turn stove on medium low until the sugar in pot dissolves. Once dissolved, turn to medium high.
As it cooks, whisk egg whites furiously until they are very fluffy and somewhat “dry” looking.
Slooooooowly pour the boiling sugar down the side of the bowl so that it streams into the gelatin.
Don’t forget to have that mixer on.
Once the sugar is completely in the mixer, turn to high.
It will appear yellow and sort of syrupy. Ewe. just keep mixing.
Eventually, it will start to get slightly stickier and turn white
I believe it took about 5 minutes, but this can vary slightly.
Once it has grown in sized and has fluffed up a little, turn off immediately and using a spatula or whatever slowly fold in egg whites. (Fold means to spoon it in, then carefully scoop up the gelatin mixture up over the egg whites)
Carefully mix in sprinkles.
Spray the spatula set by the lined pan with cooking spray and use it to scoop out marshmallow until it barely covers the cake cubes.
Quickly drop more cake cubes on top of marshmallow. Add more than you see here.
Pour the second layer of marshmallow just to cover cake, then another layer of cake cubes. The more cake, the better.
Continue until you have used all marshmallow.
Allow to set uncovered over night. Flip onto a cutting board covered with corn starch or powdered sugar.
Spray a long, serrated knife with cooking spray and cut into large blocks.
Sprinkles are kind of like crack for kids. They will eat them off of the table. I used to pick them up from the floor as a kid and eat them. Don’t judge.
Do you like the cake stand? See how to make it here.
I absolutely love the cake bits. They are just enough to get your cake fill without going overboard.
If you want smaller marshmallows, cut them into smaller cubes.
These have to be the most fun marshmallows you have ever seen, no?
Excuse me. I need to go have my fifth drink. And to vacuum sprinkles from the carpet before my dog eats them. I just started a sentence with, “and.”
