2 2/3 cup buttermilk (or 2 1/4 cup whole milk and 1/4 cup lemon juice)
2/3 cup sprinkles (optional)
CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup butter, room temperature
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
6-7 cups confectioner’s sugar
2-3 tbsp milk
Wish Farms blueberries
Wish Farms strawberries
Coconut shavings (colored with green food-coloring)
Black gel icing (or food coloring to dye a bit of your cream cheese frosting)
Homemade Vanilla Funfetti Cake
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease two 10-inch cake pans and line them with parchment paper (especially important if using sprinkles in the batter).
Cream butter and sugar together for 2-3 minutes. Add egg whites one at a time, then add vanilla and zest (if using)
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
With mixer running, alternate mixing flour mixture and buttermilk into the butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour. Stir in sprinkles (if using).
Pour batter evenly into prepared cake pans. Bake for 18-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool cakes for 10 minutes before removing from pans
CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
Beat the cream cheese and butter together until fully combined.
Add the zest, juice, vanilla, and salt.
Gradually beat in the sugar and milk, using slightly more sugar or milk as needed for a creamy texture.
Wash and pat dry the Wish Farms strawberries and blueberries. Slice 3-4 strawberries and set aside.
Once cakes have cooled completely, Cut 2 convex-shaped ears from each side of the first cake, and place them at the top of the second cake to create ears. The remaining concave-shaped piece from the “ear” cake can be placed below the “head” cake to create a bowtie.
Frost the entire bunny shape with the cream cheese icing and use strawberry slices to fill in the ears and create a bunny nose. Blueberries can be used to outline and/or fill in the bunny bowtie.
Use black gel icing or colored cream cheese icing to give the bunny some cute eyes and lashes
Decorate your serving plate with green coconut shreds to create grass and add additional berries or Easter candies
