Ah, February is here and you can almost feel the love in the air. Oh wait, maybe it’s not love. Maybe it’s just another blizzard for us cold states. This past weekend while Chicago was coated in a very thick blanket of snow it was my daughter’s birthday. Poor kid has had blizzards or mass snow fall on half of her birthdays. Since we were housebound and I hadn’t done any Valentine’s Day recipes yet I decided to make her a cake perfect for February. I also decided after shoveling that I wanted it to be easy to make so I used a box mix to make a Sprinkled With Love Valentine’s Day cake. My daughter loved her cake and it came out perfect for a Valentine’s cake to make for or with your little loveys this Valentine’s Day.

This cake comes together easily with the help of a box white cake mix. I did a three layer cake and one layer was white, one pink and the last one was red. The colors for the cake came out really bright and vibrant and to help make the white really pop I used some white food coloring (Americolor makes a great bright white gel color). For the frosting I used my marshmallow buttercream (which I love!!!) but you can use any frosting even canned. I finished off the cake with some Wilton heart sprinkles that I found that came in the white, red and pink colors to perfectly compliment the inside of the cake. You could even do these as cupcakes and just layer the batter into the cupcake liner and then cover the frosted tops with loads of sprinkles.

Ingredients
  1. 1 15.25 oz. box of white cake mix
  2. 3 egg whites
  3. 1/3 c. melted butter, cooled
  4. 1 1/4 c. water
  5. pink, red & white food coloring
  6. 3-4 c. buttercream frosting or canned frosting
  7. Wilton micro heart sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° and spray three 9" round cake pans with baking spray. Then line each pan with a circle of parchment paper and spray that as well.
  2. In a bowl combine the cake mix, egg whites, melted butter & water. Mix according to package instructions, usually 2-2.5 minutes with a hand mixer. Divide the batter evenly into three bowls. Use red food coloring to color one bowl of batter, pink food coloring to color the second bowl and you can optionally add white food color to the final bowl. Pour one of the colors into one of the prepared pans and then add the other two colors to the other two pans. Bake the cakes for 20-25 minutes. Let the cakes cool and then invert them onto a cake circle, plate or wire rack.
  3. While the cakes are cooling make your frosting or get the canned opened and stirred. When the cakes are cool make sure to level the cakes using a cake leveler or a serrated knife. Place the red layer of cake onto a cake circle or a cake plate and frost the top. Next, ad the pink cake and frost the top of that one. Finally, add the white cake layer on top of that one. Apply a crumb coat (a thin layer of frosting to the top and sides to seal in crumbs) and then refrigerate at least 15 minutes to firm up the frosting. Frost the top and sides of the cake with the final frosting layer. Carefully press handfuls of sprinkles into the sides and top of the cake until it is completely covered.
