Julia Child once said "A party without cake is just a meeting" - and I agree with her on very level. Any kind of cake is fine - chocolate cake, vanilla cake, ice cream cake, short cake - I will take anything you got - but a party without a cake is just not something I am that into.
Another thing I think most parties should have is confetti. There are not many things in this world that scream party like confetti does. It just makes me happy - and I am not afraid to say it. Especially after I found this article on the many different ways you can clean up confetti, there was literally no excuse not to have it anymore. So this week, I decided to combine the two, and make the ultimate party center piece - a Confetti Cake! This Vanilla Vanilla Cake is decorated with edible confetti and topped with some awesome star sparklers. Sparkles + Confetti + Cake - you can't get much better than that - and I think Julia would agree.
