Stenciled Sprinkle Cake

Not sure how this is possible, but my little Mase Train turned 6 a couple of weeks ago. I truly don’t understand it, because he was literally just born.

But regardless, we had a party for him at The Makery, which is an amazing little space in State College that offers classes, workshops, parties and other events. {And, as a bonus and not-so-selfless plug: I am going to be teaching cake decorating classes there now! So, SO excited! My first class is TOMORROW! and is all about anti-gravity cakes like this one. If you’re in the area and want more information, click here to see what classes are coming up!}

I love how fun and festive this cake is -- and it only took about 5 minutes to make! So cute!!

Anyway, I obviously had to make him a cake, but I did not have a ton of time, so I couldn’t do anything too complicated. I was originally going to do a sprinkle cake, but I wanted to switch it up a bit since I did the sprinkle cake for Connor a few years ago. 

So I decided to do a stenciled sprinkle cake and put a “6” on the top of it. 

And I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.

It was just as easy as the sprinkle cake, but gave it a little extra snazz. And it took no more than 10 minutes to do, tops. I used the same technique that I used on the original sprinkle cake, but I just changed things up a bit.

Once again, I started with a Wegman’s Ultimate White Cake, but this time, I just printed out a big ol’ #6 in Microsoft Word, cut it out and laid it down on the top of the cake. Then I slapped all the sprinkles on, and once they were stuck on there pretty well — make sure you really press the sprinkles down around the stencil, because if they’re not stuck to the icing, they will fall all over the part you want to keep clean! — I carefully peeled the stencil off.

That was it! Ridiculously easy, and so festive and fun.

The kids were going crazy about all the sprinkles, and it blew Mason’s mind that there was a “6” on the cake. {Although I will say, the first time both he and D looked at it, they said, “Wait, why is there a “9” on the cake?” *mental head slap*}

You could do all sorts of things for the stencil — numbers, letters, shapes… I thought it would be cute to do a flower with the center cut out, so that the petals were just the plain icing and the center was a circle of sprinkles. {I tend to always fantasize about girly things I could make but never have the opportunity to do!}

What would you do on your stenciled sprinkle cake??
