Funfetti Pound Cake

Funfetti Pound Cake

In yesterday’s post, I made a German Chocolate Pound Cake out of a boxed mix with a tub of prepared icing mixed into the batter. It turned out so good, that I felt the itch to try that same principal of mixing a cake mix plus the corresponding frosting together – but with different flavors.

All the obvious ones came into my head – but when I saw that box of funfetti cake mix staring back at me, I could make no other!  I also had a tub of funfetti icing – so it was fate.  A new pound cake must be made.

I used the same recipe on this as I did with the German Chocolate pound cake, switching out the icing & the mix with the corresponding flavors.  Really – can you imagine the endless possibilities of pound cake flavors that you could come up with?

The funfetti pound cake turned out moist and delicate in texture – and the flavor was the classic vanilla pound cake with little hints of the funfetti flavor.  It was really good, and disappeared at a record rate of speed thanks to my husband and kids.  Ok, ok. You caught me.  I also did a number on it :)Funfetti Pound Cake

    Can you make it with the duncan hines cake mix? Ive made the cake 2 times and it’s sticky, and I’m not getting the crust on the cake? Not sure why?

    • You sure can. I’m not sure why you aren’t getting the crust on the cake either… maybe humidity?
