Sprinkles For Breakfast Birthday Recipes Chocolate Sprinkle Cake

Tomorrow is National Chocolate Cake Day – and in honor of this great holiday, I decided to prepare accordingly with this Chocolate Sprinkle Cake.

How to Make Chocolate Cake With Sprinkles

I know for most people this may not be a huge holiday, but for me, it’s kind of a big deal. Cake has always been my favorite food. There is just something about the stacked layers and creamy frosting that make it impossible for me to resist. But it wasn’t until last week that I realized how sick my obsession really is.

How To Make A Chocolate Sprinkle Cake

I spent the last week cleaning out my childhood home, and a good amount of that time was spent sitting on the floor of my mother’s closet sorting through hundreds of family photos.

As I did this, I started to notice a recurring theme happening in my stack. Throughout my life, I am frequently photographed with cake. Sometimes I would be posing cutely with the cake like this…

Ingredients
  

CHOCOLATE CAKE

  • 2 cups sugar (402g)
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (224g)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (88g)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk (250ml)
  • 1 cup strong black coffee (250ml)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (120ml)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

FROSTING

  • 1 lb. unsalted butter, room temperature (454g)
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 lbs. powdered sugar (907g)
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Milk
  • 1 1/2 cups sprinkles (6 oz)

Instructions
 

For the cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F, and line three 8" cake pans with parchment.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix on low until dry ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  • On low speed add eggs, buttermilk, coffee, oil and vanilla.
  • Once everything is combined beat on medium speed for 1 minute.
  • Divide batter evenly between the three pans.
  • Bake for 20-24 minutes, or until wooden toothpick comes out clean.
  • Place on a cooling rack to cool.

For the frosting:

  • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat butter and cream cheese together until light and fluffy.
  • Slowly add powdered sugar. Mix until combined and fluffy.
  • Add vanilla and milk. Mix until combined.

Assembly

  • Once cakes are cool, remove them from the pans and place one layer onto a cake plate. Using an offset spatula, spread a generous amount of frosting to the edge of the cake.
  • Turn the second layer upside down (so the bottom is face up) and gently place it on top of the first layer. Repeat with the third layer.
  • Use the remaining frosting to frost the rest of the cake. Start with a generous amount on the top and work your way to the sides.
  • Once the outside is completely frosted, hold the cake over a large bowl (or place in on an upside down cake pan) and firmly press sprinkles into the sides and on the top of the cake. Repeat until the cake is completely covered.

  1. Made this for my partner’s birthday today, and it looks great! I would recommend doubling the amount of frosting if you’re hoping to have frosting layers that match what is in the picture.

Basically, if you can eat it, you can use luster dust on it! But here are my l favorite ways to use it:

- Royal Icing Cookies
- Fondant cakes
- Buttercream Cakes/Cupcakes (but buttercream must be cold when applied)
- Chocolate Covered anything (including cake pops)
- Splattered on brownies

She’s not like a regular spreadsheets. She’s a COOL spreadsheet. Also quick shout-out to Olive’s poop bag hanging out of the drawer in the back!

But The Ultimate Pricing Calculator is truly amazing because it includes our advanced pricing calculator that factors in your costs, labor, overhead and profit in order to give you a final price (but you don’t have to do any of the math!!) You never have to stress about pricing your goods and services again.

But that’s not all.

Here are some other things it does:
- makes pricing quick and easy for anyone who works with food
- specific ingredient section to cost out your recipes
- 100% customizable (gives you final prices based off your own costs and materials)
- all the formulas and formating are already done for you - you just have to input your data in a few cells
- includes a cost per unit calculator
- lessons to help you figure out how much you should charge per hour and how much profit you should make!

Right now you can get it for 50% off. Check the details with the link in my bio.

The Ultimate Pricing Calculator is actually designed to be the opposite of a “regular” spreadsheet. It is there to make things LESS stressful - becuase we have done all the hard (and boring) work for you.

It makes pricing quick and easy. All you have to do is input your info in a few cells and it automatically gives you the price you should charge for your goods and services.

It’s the best thing ever.

Pricing was one of my biggest struggles in the beginning. I was always overthinking it and trying to analyze what other people were charging.

But with the Pricing Calculator, I no longer had to stress out about it. The calculator simply just told me what I needed to charge. It was AMAZING and a total game-changer.

And now I want to help make pricing easy for you too. Check the link in my bio to see how you can use the calculator in your business!
