Final Thoughts

Funfetti sheet cakes can be a lot of fun, especially when you step out of the traditional vanilla-on-vanilla.

When you start experimenting with different variations – whether that is in the flavor of the sponge itself or the frosting – you can have even more fun! 

Most recipes can be altered to be vegan and gluten-free, though it might take some extra work. However, we have tried to include something for everyone here, so you have plenty to choose from. 

Just so you know… If you really want to have an easy time with a funfetti cake, you could always purchase a cake-premade mix. This will speed things up, so it’s great if you don’t have the time to measure everything out yourself. 

If you do choose to use a premade mix, make sure you swap out the water for milk! This will step the cake up and make it restaurant-worthy. 

However, if you would like to make a funfetti cake from scratch, we have put together a list of some of the best recipes you could ask for. Let’s dive in.
