Confetti cake with strawberry buttercream


This is a sponsored post by Challenge butter, but the text and opinions are all mine. Thank you for supporting brands that make Kylee's Kitchen possible! 

I'm celebrating Tuesday (or should I say Twosday) 2/22/22 by making a number 2-shaped confetti cake with strawberry buttercream frosting! If you are not celebrating an occasion in which the number two is involved (which is probably the case for most of you reading this blog post), the good news is that this is still an incredibly delicious cake and buttercream recipe.

Before you jump into the recipe, I want to share a few tips that are very important when making cakes.

First, ALWAYS MEASURE INGREDIENTS BY WEIGHT! I cannot emphasize this enough, and I'm sure you've heard me say this many times. It is the most accurate way to measure ingredients. And it's very very important to be accurate when baking because baking is a science. My $15 mini scale is my most used tool in the kitchen.

Second, make sure all your ingredients are room temperature. Ingredients mix together better when they're all the same temperature. Room temperature butter should still be slightly cool, and it shouldn't look greasy and melty. When you touch it, your finger should leave an imprint, but it shouldn't sink down into the butter. I only use Challenge unsalted butter in my baking recipes. It doesn't have any artificial ingredients, so the taste is pure and the flavor is consistent.

Third, spray your cake pans, line with parchment paper, and spray again. It's the best way to ensure that your cakes will easily pop out of the pans.

Fourth, do not use the "toothpick test" to see if your cake is done. It is not fail proof. There are three things I want you to do instead. The first is to lightly touch the top of the cake. It should bounce back. Next, look at the edges. The cake will start to pull away from the pan when it's done. Lastly, use a thermometer to check the temperature of the center of the cake. It should register between 200 and 205 degrees Fahrenheit.

  5. Bouncing Back From Bankruptcy!!!
    Bouncing back from bankruptcy can be a bit dicey! I filed chapter 7 a year ago, my assets were liquidated and used to settle most of my debts, while most of the remaining debts were discharged. I found out to my dismay that my credit score had dropped drastically. I tried almost every card company but didn’t get approved, some interest rate were so outrageous that I had to decline. I was practically living from hand to mouth. A neighbor of mine recommended METRONET CREDIT SOLUTION a credit specialist who had helped him in the past. I contacted them and they helped me remove all the negatives from my credit report (including bankruptcy)! And raised my credit score to 700s across all three bureaus and also gave me guidelines to maintain my credit score. I’m so happy and grateful to them for this great help. I’m recommending their services as promised to anyone in need of credit related assistance. You can reach them via METRONETCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM or Whatsapp: +16265140620.

  6. My name is Gabriel DeRobertis; I’m a waiter here in Norcross Georgia. I went through a messy divorce which left my credit bleeding. My wife was giving custody of our daughter and I was told to pay for child support monthly. With my credit ruined and my low income, paying for child support was like a huge weight on me. I applied for a loan several times and all were declined due to my poor credit score. I met Angela, a customer who noticed I was always moody. She approached me, we talked and she offered to help me. She introduced me to a credit guru (760Plus Credit Score). She assured me that my problems would be solved by them. I made some commitments and within 11days of contacting them, my credit score was boosted to 772 and every negative item had been removed. I was told to recommend their services. I contacted them via 760PLUSCREDITSCORE@GMAIL.COM. Please do well to mention me
