We weren’t crazy about this cake, but I take some of the blame. We returned from a two-week trip to Cuba late Thursday night, spent Friday catching up, and then I made the cake on Saturday when I would have rather been sleeping. I don’t do well with jet lag, and I’m coming off of a cold that I had during vacation.
Enough with the excuses. I had an off baking day. The cake turned out fine, although I think it could have spent a little less time in the oven. I like the look of the sprinkles inside, but I think they added a store-bought flavor that’s exacerbated by the coating of sprinkles on the outside. Sprinkle flavor, in this case, is critical.
I made a huge mess trying to coat the cake with the sprinkles, too. Sprinkles all over the kitchen counter, on the floor, etc.
So next time – no sprinkles, just a lovely vanilla cake with vanilla frosting for me, thanks.
