Sprinkle Cakewiches

Notes: You can use any type of poundcake for this recipe--I used a decadent chocolate poundcake. As for the filling, adding a couple of drops of red food coloring to the frosting so that you have a pretty pink hue is not necessary, but I highly recommend it.

  • 1 pound cake (baked in a loaf pan, approximately 9x5 inches)
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2-3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2-3 drops red food coloring (optional)
  • Sprinkles


  1. 1

    Chill the poundcake in the refrigerator for 1 hour or the freezer for 20-30 minutes. You will need to do this so that it will be firm enough to be sliced thinly without breaking.

  2. 2

    While the cake chills, prepare the frosting. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter until fluffy; add the confectioners' sugar little by little until a creamy, spreadable consistency has been reached. You want this to be slightly less stiff than if you were frosting the outside of a cake, because you will be spreading it on a fairly delicate surface. Adding a couple of drops of red food coloring so you have pink frosting is not necessary, but I highly recommend it.

  3. 3

    Remove the poundcake from its chilling place and slice into 1/2-inch thick slices. You should get about 18 slices from one loaf cake.

  4. 4

    Place two slices side by side, aligned as mirror images so that when you stack them after adding the fillings, the slices will match direction.

  5. 5

    Spread a thin layer (about 1 teaspoon) frosting on each slice.

  6. 6

    Sprinkle a generous amount of sprinkles on one of the slices.

  7. 7

    Place the un-sprinkled side on top of the slice with sprinkles to form a sandwich.

  8. 8

    Repeat with the remaining slices until you have made 9 full-sized cakewiches. If desired, slice each sandwich in half for daintier, tea sandwich-sized portions.
