- 1 cup butter, room temperature
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 eggs, separated, room temperature
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup milk, room temperature
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 cups unsalted butter, softened
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon rock salt
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- Rainbow candy sprinkles
- One 9×13 inch pan
- 3- 8 or 9 inch Round Cake Layer Pan
Step 1: Pre Heat the Oven and prepare the Pan : Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9×13 inch pan or three 8- or 9-inch cake pans.
Step 2: Combine Butter and Sugar : Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Step 3: Add the Eggs: Add the egg yolks one at a time, beating after each one. Mix in the vanilla extract.
Step 4: Forming Cake Mixture: Sift together the baking powder, flour, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture in three batches, alternating with the milk. Blend after each addition. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl and beat an additional minute.
Step 5: Add the Egg whites : In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with a dash of salt until stiff peaks form. Fold one third of the egg whites into the cake batter to lighten it; gently fold in the remaining egg whites. Pour batter into prepared pan(s).
Step 6: Bake the Cake: Bake in preheated oven until cake springs back when touched lightly with a fingertip and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cake layers may be done baking after 25 minutes; a 9×13-inch cake may take 35 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
Step 7: Prepare the Frosting: Prepare the Frosting: Beat butter in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Scrape down sides and bottom of bowl twice while beating. With mixer running on low speed, gradually add powdered sugar, beating until smooth, about 2 minutes, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl as needed. Beat in vanilla and salt. With mixer running on medium speed, gradually add cream, beating until fluffy and spreadable, about 30 seconds. (For best results, beat frosting by hand with a wooden spoon for about 2 minutes to remove air bubbles.)
Step 8: Fill Frosting in the cake: Place one layer of cake on a serving plate. Evenly cover the top with about ¾ cup of frosting. Repeat with the second layer, covering the top and sides of the cake with frosting.
Decorate with sprinkles if desired. Refrigerate the cake for about an hour to make it easier to slice and serve.
Step 9: Ready to Serve: After an hour, Cut the Slices and Enjoy each Bite..
