Funfetti Oreo Stacks; Funfetti cake layered with Oreo cookies, frosting, and sprinkles. A great funfetti recipe for birthdays!
Whoever came up with the word “funfetti” was brilliant, because everyone knows sprinkles are more fun.
Since the neighbor and long time friend of the Hippie Chick was having a birthday, we wanted to celebrate with something, well… fun. And, obviously it’s more fun if it has the word “fun” in it.
Or if it has Oreos.
And so I used both.
Truth be told, I’m not completely prepared for the upcoming birthday season at our house. It begins in May and lasts until October. It’s intense, it’s expensive, and it means my kids are getting old.
I keep thinking, if I plan early, if I prepare ahead of time with birthday cake recipes and party ideas, maybe the emotional blow my childrens’ birthdays are becoming to me will be easier to handle.
It probably won’t work. But it’s all I’ve got.
So, the Hippie Chick and I were having a conversation about this.
Me: Bean’s birthday is tomorrow. Should we get her a gift?
Hippie Chick: Yes!
Me: What should we get her?
HC: I don’t know. I can’t think of anything good.
Me: Maybe we should bake her a treat?
HC: Yes! Great idea! Let’s make something vanilla. Everyone likes vanilla.
I literally cannot break her of this belief. Lord knows I’ve tried.
The process is amazingly simple. Get yourself a Funfetti box cake mix, and make it according to the package directions, except pour it into a sheet pan to bake, so you get this thin sheet cake with cute sprinkles. Use a round cookie cutter to cut little circles from the cake, then layer them between Oreos with frosting.
Top with sprinkles. Devour. Repeat.
Happy Birthday, Miss Bean!
