This really is a perfect Funfetti Cake for Two! I used half of my All-Butter American Buttercream for this cake. You can leave out the jimmies if you’d like a plain vanilla cake instead. Coloring the batter is another fun option! Get creative and use your imagination without having to worry about a ton of cake leftover!
Perfect Funfetti Cake for Two
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare two 6" cake pans. I use my Non-Stick Pan Release, and then place a piece of parchment paper in the bottom of the pan.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together you flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, melt your unsalted butter and add in your sugar. Whisk. It will still be gritty and that's okay.
Whisk until slightly lighter in color. About 2 minutes.
Add your sour cream, vanilla, and milk and whisk until incorporated.
Add your flour mixture into the wet ingredients.
Whisk until most of the lumps are gone. If you're adding your jimmies, do so now. Don't over-mix them or they'll start to bleed.
Split your batter between your two prepared pans.
Bake for 40-46 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Remove from the oven, and let the cake cool in the pan for 8 minutes.
Remove from the pan and let the cakes cool completely on a cooling rack.
Assemble with your buttercream and enjoy!
