I’m not generally a big dessert eater – I’d usually rather have potato chips and french fries. Bring on the salty things! It’s rare that I find a dessert that I find irresistible.


It’s no joke when I say that this Spring Sugar Cookie Cake was one of the best desserts I’ve had in a while. It’s got a HUGE vanilla flavor, a dense but soft texture, and just enough frosting to enjoy those sweet bites without going into sugar overload. My kids and husband couldn’t stop talking about it. It was gone within a few days, and they were very quickly asking me to make it again.

Recipe Notes:

In this recipe, I used several ingredients from our sponsors, including Dixie Spring Sugar Cookie Cake IngredientsCrystals granulated sugar, Adams Extract vanilla extract (so good!) and food coloring, and Sprinkle Pop sprinkles. All are products I’ve used and loved in the past, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to you for use in your own kitchen. But a specific notes on the preparation of this cake:

  • Sprinkles: For the cake, I used mostly plain colored sprinkles (pink and yellow), with just a couple of tablespoons of Sprinkle Pop’s Egg Hunt Sprinkles Mix, pulling out the royal icing bunnies and carrots to save for the top. I then used 2+ tablespoons of the Egg Hunt Sprinkles Mix to decorate the top of the cake. This mix is so stunning that I really wanted to make sure that the sprinkles had an opportunity to shine.
  • Food Coloring: The Adams Extract Food Coloring are all natural and made from fruit and vegetable juices. As such, you’ll end up using more drops of coloring than you may be used to, and the color is not quite as vibrant. Personally, I love the softer colors, but if you find yourself adding more coloring than you are used it, it’s ok!

Ingredients

Ingredients for the Cake:

  • cooking spray
  • 3/4 c. unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbs. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 c. toffee pieces
  • 1/2 c. sprinkles

Ingredients for the Frosting:

  • 3 Tbs. unsalted butter softened
  • 1 1/2 c. confectioners sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2-3 Tbs. heavy whipping cream
  • 20 drops Adams natural food coloring
  • 2-3 Tbs. spring or Easter sprinkles

Instructions

Make the Cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a 9-inch round cake pan with foil. Spray with cooking spray and set aside.

  2. Use a stand mixer or hand mixer to combine butter and sugar, on medium speed, until combined. Add egg and vanilla and beat to combine. 

  3. Scrape down sides of the bowl and add baking soda, salt, cream of tartar, and flour. Beat on low until the dough has started to come together. Increase speed to medium and continue beating until dough comes together - it'll take a few minutes for dough to go from crumbly to cohesive. 

  4. Finally, mix in toffee bits and sprinkles. Turn out into prepared pan and press down. Bake for 19-22 minutes, until edges are starting to brown. Remove from oven - DO NOT OVERBAKE! Cake will continue to bake a bit in the pan, so it's better to have it underbaked. 

  5. Allow cake to cool completely before removing from pan and frosting.

Frost the Cake:

  1. In a small bowl, beat butter until smooth. Add salt and confectioners sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, until butter is mixed in. Add vanilla extract and then heavy whipping cream, 1 Tbs. at a time until frosting comes together and is the right consistency for piping.

  2. Use a 1M tip and a piping bag to frost edge of the cake, and if you have extra, center. Decorate with remaining sprinkles.

  3. Serve, or cover loosely until serving. Cake will keep, covered, for about 2 days.
