Is Funfetti Just Vanilla with Sprinkles?

Yes, Funfetti is vanilla cake with sprinkles, but it’s so much more. Funfetti cake is a festive confetti cake filled with nostalgia. It was invented in 1989 by Pillsbury. 

Funfetti is a vanilla-flavored white cake stuffed with colorful candy bits that, when baked, look like confetti or colorful dots. The cake is typically topped with vanilla frosting and topped with loads of colorful sprinkles.

The difference between Funfetti and sprinkles is that Funfetti is a brand name boxed vanilla cake mix that includes colorful candy pieces. Funfetti’s candy bits are made from sugar, corn starch, and vegetable oil. Classic Funfetti candy pieces are round and flat. Sprinkles can be shaped like beads, rods, or flat circles.
