  • Unsalted Butter
  • Sour Cream
  • Whole Milk
  • Vanilla Extract

  • Egg White



You’ll need all purpose flour baking powder salt granulated sugar egg whites unsalted butter softened at room temperature let me go sour cream. I’ve got some whole milk vanilla extract and I’ve got some jimmies.I’m just taking my egg whites and I’m going to use my standing mixer to whip these up on a whisk egg until they’ve got stiff peaks now like when they’re there they should take a couple minutes beautiful now I don’t leave the egg whites at this very moment.I need to whip the egg whites and I’m using a standing mixer I might as well get them done out of the way because you can’t whip egg whites in a dirty Bowl so you want to get those done out of the way so now that that’s done and don’t worry if a little bit remains they have facts totally fine.I’m going to put this back on I’m going to switch to a paddle attachment.


I’m going to add in my beautiful egg whites look at that out of the way.I’m going to add my softened butter really important that it’s nice and soft and I sugar and I’m gonna get these kids to get creamed up.I said I’m gonna get these nice and creamy and fluffy my excitement is making me like stutter but this is something gorgeous and’ve noticed we haven’t added whole eggs and that’s because.I want this to be a gorgeous white fluffy cake it’s absolutely delicious really a treat.I’m just going to whisk this a poor mix until it’s nice and heavy that’s looking good I’m going to add a splash of vanilla extract and at this point I’m also going to add my sour cream I’m not adding very much but this little tiny bit it’s going to go a long way and give you the fluffiest thing ever the funkiest cake ever but if you don’t have it.


You could use yogurt if, you don’t have yogurt just use a little extra milk be totally fine so raise this up get these combined in the meantime.I’m just gonna take a quick second to mix together my flour baking powder and salt you don’t have to do it perfectly just want them to be pretty much mixed together now. I’m going to add half of my flour about half and half of my milk bring this back up mix it together and then you add the rest of your flour the rest of your milk and your batter is almost done that’s looking gorgeous.I’m going to add my jimmies in now and the jimmies are really the best kind of wrinkle confetti to use for this but by all means you can do anything that you prefer this is just what I prefer I’m going to just take that off now so, I’m going to be able to I want to be able to fold in the egg whites by hand that way.


I can make sure that they’re not being overly mixed and then they deflate but totally forgot to tell you that the first thing you want to do of course is get your oven preheated to 350 get a couple of nine inch baking pans or cake pans whatever you call them line them with parchment paper and spray them well with some nonstick spray those are ready and waiting and now what I’m doing is I’m just taking my spatula and I like to mix everything from the bottom up look how gorgeous that is and now,I’m going to take my egg whites on do half at a time and mix that in there this is going to be just beautiful and it’s going to help the cake rise and this just stunning.I’m just going to mix it up once it’s all mixed you want to divide your batter evenly whereas even as you can manage among your baking pans or your cake paste okay now these are gonna go into my preheated oven at 350 for about 30 to 35 minutes or until they’re fully cooked and then.


we’ll get going on making the buttercream. which if you love like wedding cake frosting that’s what a buttercream is it is just oh the stuff of dreams okay top is in my cakes baked for about 30 minutes and I’ve let them cool completely on a wire rack and I what I’ve done with one of them you know they’re not too domed because remember we didn’t add the egg yolks we just sort of whipped the egg whites and it falls a bit kind of like a pavlova almost but but I did I put it on a cake stand and then. I just put a few pieces of parchment paper around so that the cakes in itself doesn’t get dirty once. I go ahead and frost it we’re going to make a really simple buttercream and it really couldn’t be easier the first thing you’re going to do is you need to start with butter that’s been softened at room temperature like that is so so crucial you absolutely need it to be at the proper stage so what I have here is a good amount of butter because again this is buttercream.

6I’m making this in my standing mixer just because it’s easier it needs to whisk for a long time so,I’m just going to pop that in just going to add some vanilla extract about a tablespoon of it is it is a vanilla buttercream after all and I’m just going to whip this up until just the butter starts get you know get going and I have some confectioner sugar here and some whole milk just going to wait for this to kind of get a head start and then we’ll add in the sugar okay now what I also have here that I failed to mention is just a small pinch of salt and because this is all confectioner sugar which I know is a lot but it is about a cream just need to add a little salt to cut all the sweetness it really does it’s a great balance I’m just going to add my sugar trying to not get it all over the place.

7I think I did pretty well let’s see yeah yeah well and then just a splash of milk only a couple tablespoons of milk and now.I’m going to get this up and get it going and mixing and this could take up to 10 minutes.I mean buttercream goes from messy to crumbly to perfection so you just need to have patience and the great thing is you’re not doing it and you’re using a standing mixer so it makes life a lot easier go let that continue to go go go what’s the perfect consistency now so you would look like once there that is perfection it took a good four minutes of mixing but I mean look at that I so fluffy look at that so worth the wait so worth it and yes again it’s really rich but I promise you this is a once in a while treat it’s like a wedding cake you don’t eat it very often and most of the time frostings that are used on wedding cakes are buttercream so,I’m just gonna mix.

8I get like immense pleasure when it comes to buttercream because if,you make buttercream at home that you know the consistency that you’re looking for so there’s just something about it that just gives me great pleasure so this is completely done and now we’ll get going on frosting.I’m just going to take a little bit of it not too much about.I’d say a third and I’m just using an offset sort of spatula here what spatula to just smear this you don’t have to go all the way to the edges although I doesn’t matter because we are going to cover the whole thing you can’t wait to have a slice of this you have no idea if, your birthdays in the summer jealous very jealous take the remaining frosting.

9you’re like a complete and total mess when you’re frosting cakes it helps a lot and then.I just like to take the top and just do little swirls like that you don’t have to do this clearly.I’m not a master at decorating cakes it is just my way of making it look fancy terrible.I know decorating cakes is not my forte okay or my mother’s this is why the parchment is so beautiful because now you get to take the parchment off and you have no mess on your hands don’t you love when that happens no mess and then you don’t like a pro and then you don’t tell your friends that this is a trick that way it they’re like how did you manage to do that you’re like.

10I’m not good I know and then I’m going to take additional jimmies because I want everyone to see that this is a confetti birthday cake.I’m going to put them all over the top the more the merrier when it comes to jimmies now somehow there’s a play in the for confronting which leads me to believe that even though it’s my only pretend birthday I should still have a piece of cake so I’m going to do it I’m gonna go in for it.
