Cake Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole milk
Whipped Cream Frosting Ingredients:
3 cups heavy whipping cream, chilled
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Gel food coloring in pastel colors (pink, blue, green, yellow)

Easter-themed sprinkles
Mini pastel-colored chocolate eggs



Preheat Oven and Prep Pans:

Preheat your oven to 350Β°F (175Β°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans or line with parchment paper.

Dry Ingredients:

In a bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Cream Butter and Sugar:

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. This should take about 3-4 minutes.

Add Eggs and Vanilla:

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Combine with Dry Ingredients:

Alternately add the dry ingredients and milk to the butter mixture, starting and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.


Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool Cakes:

Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then turn out onto wire racks to cool completely.

Whipped Cream Frosting:

Whip the Cream:

In a large bowl, whip the heavy cream with an electric mixer until it starts to thicken. Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Continue to whip until stiff peaks form.

Color the Cream:

Divide the whipped cream into separate bowls for as many colors as you want. Add a drop of gel food coloring to each bowl and gently fold in the color to create pastel shades.


Layer the Cake:

Place one cake layer on your serving plate. Spread a layer of the colored whipped cream on top.

Add the Second Layer:

Gently place the second cake layer on top of the first layer of cream.

Frost the Cake:

Use an offset spatula or the back of a spoon to apply and swirl the different colored whipped creams onto the top and sides of the cake. Create a pattern or mix the colors as desired for a pastel effect.


Sprinkle the Easter-themed sprinkles over the top of the cake and decorate with mini chocolate eggs.


Place the cake in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving to set the whipped cream frosting.
Enjoy your festive and colorful Easter cake!
