Confetti Cake is my little brother’s favorite cake. I make it for him every year on February 8th. I prefer chocolate cake over vanilla but this one is so delicious that it actually makes me reconsider every time. I think most kids would enjoy this cake. It’s just a very fun looking cake. It screams kiddy in a good way. Imagine walking into an 8-year-old kids birthday party with this cake in one hand and a box of pizza in the other. You may get tackled.
I couldn’t stop taking photos.

Tried this recipe?Mention @cookedbyjulie or tag #cookedbyjulie!
So I’m confused lol it looks like you only did 3 sticks of butter in the cake batter but the directions say 24oz of butter. Am I missing something? And also could I do cake balls with this recipe?
Hi Monique, I just adjusted the recipe so thank you! You can definitely make cake balls with this recipe.
If I make cupcakes with this recipe should the cooking time be the same?
