Celebration Confetti Bundt Cake #BundtBakers


Time for August's #BundtBakers! This month's theme comes from Teri at Love and Confections. The challenge: Sprinkles off all sorts! Jimmies, colored sugar, nonpareils, dragĂ©es, candies, pearl sugar, etc. If it can be sprinkled and used to decorate a Bundt, inside and/or outside, it's fair game. 


Seriously, Teri! What a fun theme! And THANK YOU for hosting!


I had no problem deciding that I was just going to go 'heavy handed' with rainbow sprinkles and make a 'Celebration' Cake. What are we celebrating?



A problem house on my street (so many people came and went we did not know who actually lived there) had a visit (dawn raid) from some nice people (federal agents) to encourage them to have better manners (not sure exactly what the bad manners were, but someone landed in jail). And that's all I'm going to say about that because federal agents tend to be very tight lipped about their investigations (they would not divulge any juicy details). 

Pop the champagne and bring out the Celebration Confetti Bundt Cake!!! It seems all the people who came and went from the problem house have moved out!


The baking of the Celebration Confetti Bundt Cake happened to coincide with my daughter's summer book club meeting. (Yes, I'm trying to be the cool mom by holding a summer book club to get my daughter to read in the summer. I know this is actually very uncool.)


Here are a few of the comments from Fifth Graders:


          "Thank you, pet unicorn." 

          "This tastes like fun."


          "I'm living life to its fullest."


What do you have to celebrate???

So many wonderful things to celebrate, getting back your neighborhood, hosting your daughter's summer reading club, being called a pet unicorn by a youngster....and the perfect cake with which to do so.

Interesting goings-on in your neighborhood! What a shame those Feds are so tight-lipped because It sounds like that would be quite the story. It may not be cool but I think hosting a book club for your daughter is fabulous! That cake is perfect for the occasion!

How scary to have people like that living in your neighborhood! So glad they're no longer there and a very good reason to celebrate. Your cake is so pretty and 'happy' indeed.

Lol, I too was a little "heavy handed" with the rainbow sprinkles, but I like your round ones much better than mine! Your cake looks delicious :).

You surely can't go wrong with any cake that has an excessive amount of sprinkles! So this cake looks so deliciously moist and perfect for birthdays! :D Thanks for sharing, Cali! :D
