    • Before starting, test to see if the pan will be stable on your oven rack.  If it tends to tip to one side, then place a small cookie sheet under it when baking.
    • Heat oven to 350 deg. F. Grease and flour pan (or spray with BAKING spray, the type that has flour in it already).  Set aside.
    • In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
    •  
    • In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.  Reduce the speed and add the eggs and egg whites one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Stir in vanilla.  Add the flour mixture along with the milk, beating just until combined, scraping the bowl often.  Beat on medium speed 1 minute; stir in rainbow sprinkles.  Fill each mold about ¾ full with batter, then tap the pan on countertop to release air bubbles.
    • Bake 30-35 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Cool 15 minutes in pan.  Invert pan onto cooling rack, remove pan and cool cakes completely.

    • 4 tbsp (1/2 stick/60g) unsalted butter
    • 1-1/2 cups (185g) confectioners sugar, sifted
    • 1 tbsp milk
    • ½ tsp vanilla extract
    • Pinch of salt
    • In a small bowl, using a handheld mixer, beat the butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute.  Add the confectioners sugar, milk, vanilla and salt and continue beating until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes more. Frost and decorate as desired.
