Golden Birthday Cake Bites

I had a fun little request last week from Sara – she turned 26 on the 26th! As you probably know, that means a GOLDEN BIRTHDAY! I have fond memories of my golden birthday, when I turned 7 in Ms. Heinz’s 1st grade class. Oh yes, I really DO remember it well.

Any, when she requested some cake treats, two things came to mind: 1) birthday = sprinkles, and 2) GOLD! So I made a yellow cake filling with colorful sprinkles, and added a gold touch with sprinkles and even a little golden coating on some of them. And here are the sweet results:

Is it bad that I didn’t know there was such a thing as “edible color mist?” I only used it on a few of them, because I was afraid I wouldn’t like it, but it seemed to work pretty well. I believe you are supposed to use it on icing (like for cupcakes or cookies) but it worked on candy coating as well!

The yellow cake center was a success as well. It wasn’t as rich as my chocolate cakes, but it was still quite sweet, particularly for those folks who don’t love chocolate (yes, they exist).

All in all, another cake success!
