One of my favorite new dessert recipes is the “birthday confetti cake” with cream cheese buttermilk icing. This cake is Not too sweet and has the perfect balance and tang from the buttermilk and lemon zest. The Sprinkles make this dessert beautiful. Sprinkles visually bring out the fun in this dessert, while the flavors and textures take you to a happy place.
I made this dessert 3 times before I decided to tweak the recipe. The change is minor- but give added citrus flavor.
In following this recipe, make sure to use correct pan size, not doing so can create disasters. I like to use my 8x8x2 MagicLine pan. It will come out PERFECT, the very first time. I promise. Just do your mise en place and measure all your ingredients first.
People who make desserts in Glass jars will LOVE the attention they receive from this Birthday cake confetti dessert.
Of course, you can see everything in a glass jar, so layering is key and making sure each dessert component is evenly distributed. The golden rule ( in Mason jar dessert construction is that when a spoon is inserted in the jar, you should be able to scoop out all the layers in one dig.. Dig Deep and say Ahhhhhh!!!!!!
Assembling the Mason Jar Birthday Cake recipe.

The steps are relatively straightforward and way better than boxed cake recipe, which I always find too sweet and too light in texture. This has a moist spongy texture and is definitely not too sweet. The recipe is in grams. I like working in grams better than ounces because there is much more accuracy.
