  4. Blend in the vanilla and egg whites.
  5. Blend in your milk.
  6. Combine the first {dry} bowl into your second {wet} bowl in thirds. Mix just to combine {do not over mix} then fold in the sprinkles.

  11. To assemble, brush each cooled layer with simple syrup and spread with buttercream.
Notes
*Several options are given in the video but it would also be cute to line the border with wafer straws, pocky, bunny peeps, etc

Love,
