“These are truly fun to make and fun for kids to eat and it is a good cake recipe that starts with a cake mix. They have brightly colored rainbow sprinkles inside and brightly colored dots on the frosting of your choice. I like Butter Cream Icing (Buttercream Frosting) by Marg (CaymanDesigns). For a patriotic holiday you could use red, white, and blue sprinkles, or for another holiday the color that represents it.”
