Mini Sprinkles Cake

Mini Sprinkles Cake

That’s right – you read the title correctly – Mini Sprinkles Cake. That’s cake for one, or go ahead and share if you must. I, thankfully, only had to share with one, and his little hands still don’t quite have the dexterity to navigate a fork, so I lapped him by three slices. An hour after we were done with our afternoon snack, he asked, “Are we have cake for dinner, Mama?”

Um, hehhh-yo!, finally a kid of mine that likes cake WITH SPRINKLES! So like any good mom, I was like, “It’s Saturday . . . . so yes!” I’m finally going to be able to cash in on being the kind of mom that lets her kid eat dessert before dinner. And with a little help from my friend Christina Lane’s new book Dessert for Two, Sweet & Simple, I’m only a few mixing bowls away from making dessert for two when he asks.
