Eryn's First Cake

Eryn made a cake and there was still some left for Thanksgiving when company arrived. She did most of the mixing and almost all of the frosting (little bit of help when I demoed how to do the sides). Originally, the intent was to make cupcakes.  But the cupcake pan is either long gone, or it's found a place deep in the recesses of the cupboard where even me sticking almost my full body into the storage, past the pans we use once every five to ten years, can't find it.  We decided to err on the side of too much frosting rather than risk areas that had none, which can be appreciate in the pictures below.  I think her favorite part wasn't so much the finished confetti cake with sprinkles, but the leftover frosting which she made me keep for later consumption with a spatula while she watched Mythbusters.

The cake in all its glory:

From the top, in order to truly appreciate the Christmas sprinkles.

Very cool! Good job, Eryn!

What kind of cake is underneath the frosting?

Confetti. Lots of little candy things mixed in (although of a size that mixes well - it doesn't cause you to chew your cake like a jawbreaker).
