Confetti Celebration Tray Bake Cake

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy

This Confetti cake is easy to make and a real crowd pleaser! I made this for my husbands birthday, unfortunately he only got one slice as my kiddies hoovered it up pretty quickly, I believe that proves the deliciousness of this cake!

For some extra sweetness, colour and whimsy, I added sprinkles to the batter too.

Sprinkle and bake! Pop in the oven for 30 minutes, and allow to cool before decorating.

A simple drippy glaze, made with icing sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla and water. Mix until you have a gloopy consistency, and spread over the cooled cake.

The fun part! Sprinkle the hundreds and thousands immediately after so they stick in the icing.

Set aside for 10 minutes for the glaze to set a little.

Slice and serve!

Give it a try and let me know how you got on in the comments, or tag me on Instagram, I would love to see your creations.
