Homemade Funfetti Cake Mix

Ask any kid…or adult for that matter, what the most fun cake mix is, and they will tell you hands down. Funfetti Cake Mix! Do you know what makes it even more fun? Choosing your sprinkles! Make your own Homemade Funfetti Cake Mix and blow your friends and family away with how amazing these taste!

Cake mix ingredients

The cake mix itself is super simple to whip together. You are just pre-mixing the dry ingredients for your cake. I sometimes will make several of these at once so that I have them on hand. You can never have too much cake in your life.

Cake mix with sprinkles

My favorite part is picking which sprinkles to add in. Now, there is one place you should be getting your sprinkles, and that is Sweets & Treats Boutique. Not only do they have the best sprinkles but they have the worlds most impressive cupcake liners!

True story…my blue and green sprinkles came from Sweets & Treats but my pink sprinkles were found on clearance. I still added them to my cake mix. Well, y’all. The blue and green sprinkles from Sweets & Treats held their color throughout the baking process. Those pink sprinkles gave me pink cupcakes. YEP, they lost their color right in my cake batter. There is nothing wrong with a pink cupcake, but that wasn’t what I was going for. Moral of the story, use quality ingredients.

Cake mix in bag

Once you have mixed your Homemade Funfetti Cake Mix, you can fill your bags with it. The best part is these fun (FREE) printable labels that I made for you. Just stick them right on the outside of your bags, and they have the full baking instructions directly on them. Pretty cool, right?! You can download them below

When you are ready to make cake or cupcakes just mix the eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla. That is it. See my lovely pink cupcakes? LOL


I topped these cupcakes with the best ever buttercream frosting and some extra sprinkles. See how pretty the cupcake wrappers from Sweets & Treats Boutique stay in the oven. I am telling you. They are the best!
