Very Vanilla Celebration Bundt Cake

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I love baking everything from cookies to pies and cakes, as you may already know, and this Very Vanilla Celebration Bundt Cake is so easy to put together for any occasion, and super festive and fun.

It’s very vanilla flavor comes from vanilla paste, which you can find almost everywhere and it gives the batter that extra pop of vanilla bean taste.  The batter is buttery and fragrant, and bakes up easily in a bundt pan that has been buttered and floured.  The trick to removing a bundt cake is to let it cool about 30 minutes, before loosening it with a table knife around the edges.  It will release quickly and can be inverted on a cake stand or board.

Cream cheese icing is drizzled over the top with a whisk for a thick covering that clings to the crumb of the cake.  In all honesty, it’s my favorite part of most cakes, but don’t tell anyone.  Colorful sprinkles on top of the frosting make the cake sparkle and give it more personality.  I recommend finding some that are different sizes and shapes for even more pizzazz.
