    • Cakes: line your 2 ~ 8.5″ inch cake pans with parchment paper .
  • In your mixing bowl add in your dry ingredients and mix (flour, sugar, baking soda and salt).
  • Make a crater in the middle of your dry ingredients so you can add in your wet ingredients (white vinegar, grapeseed oil, vanilla, and water. Mix until well combined.
  • Pour your batter into your prepared pans.
    • Cupcakes: I like to use my ice cream scooper and fill them a little above half way.
    • Cakes: I use my frosting spatula to scrape into my pans and fill each a little above half way.
  • Put in the oven to bake!
    • Cupcakes: 15 – 20 minutes
    • Cakes: 30 minutes
  • Done when toothpick comes out clean! Let completely cool before frosting.


  • Place your room temperature butter into the mixer and whip until smooth and creamy
  • Add in your powdered sugar a cup at a time, and mix until smooth and well combined
  • Pour in your Vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon of milk or water, mix well.
  • *If you feel your frosting is too stiff to pipe go ahead and add in your 2nd tablespoon of milk or water, a half at a time to make sure it’s to your approved consistency.
  • Scoop your frosting into your prepared piping bag and frost away!
  • If you plan to add sprinkles, immediately add them otherwise they will just fall off
