Homemade Funfetti Sheet Cake

Comments

There is something so nostalgic about Funfetti cake and also the classic sheet cake! Funfetti cake was my absolute favorite growing up and I would request it for every birthday! Of course back then, we really only made sheet cakes because they were so easy! Romeo is about to turn 5 in just a few weeks and he has requested a sprinkle cake. I figured it would be best to make a healthier version of a Funfetti sheet cake for him to dig into on his big day!

I used all grass-fed dairy ingredients to make this homemade Funfetti sheet cake. The reason I used grass-fed milk and butter is because they offer more of a balanced ratio of essential fatty acids. Grass-fed farms are better for the environment too and the cows roam the hillside, eating only GMO-free plants without being confined to pens. When I use grass-fed dairy products when baking, I truly notice a positive difference in the end result. I think using high quality ingredients always makes a big difference!!

Also, I swear by the butter meringue frosting recipe… it is AMAZING! And it’s the perfect frosting for kiddos since it only has 1 cup of organic cane sugar, 4 egg whites and grass-fed butter. It’s so soft and creamy and pretty much perfection!

I love the way this homemade Funfetti cake turned out! A fun twist on a classic cake that all kids… and adults, will love! Recipe below! Since we’re starting formula for Monroe, I’ve been looking into different options and I love that Munchkin is coming out with a new formula made with 100% grass-fed milk! It will be out this spring! So for any mamas using formula, it’s definitely going to be worth trying!

    Wanting to make for my kiddos [ages 22 and 20] today…please tell me how much lemon juice and vanilla bean extract to add to the frosting. I do not see the measurements for this in the recipe [frosting].
