Try these Funfetti Cake Bites for a super easy and fun dessert. They’re quick to make and looks great on the plate!
We love dessert at the Smith House, and though I’m obviously not a professional baker, I still enjoy whipping up some sort of sweet treat to share after dinner.
Most of our desserts are easy ones that only require a couple of steps and a few ingredients. This recipe is probably one of the easiest and, even better, one my family loves best.
Funfetti Cake Bites
Think of something similar to petit fours, only way easier, and much quicker to create. We’ve always enjoyed those little cakes, but rarely have them because they’re pricey. That’s why I decided to create our own version for home and my youngest quickly decided he liked the homemade ones even more.
He likes the pound cake texture throughout and, of course, loves the sprinkles that create a party on a plate. Here’s how we created these sweet treats. And, even better, it only takes 3 ingredients to make these.
1 Family Size Frozen Sara Lee Pound Cake
2 bags of Vanilla Flavored Candy Melts
You’ll also need a small square Cookie Cutter to create the fun bite-sized shapes.
1. Allow the pound cake to thaw just enough to cut through. Keeping it slightly frozen will make it easier to cut through the cake without crumbling.
2. Slice the pound cake in half longways.
3. Use the square cutter to create 20 – 24 squares.
4. Melt the vanilla candy buttons in microwave according to package directions.
5. Dip each cake square in candy and set on wax paper to harden.
6. Sprinkle with confetti sprinkles before the candy hardens.

Fun indeed! Petit fours I love, but they are very tricky to make well! I’ve tried and failed. Your cake bites, on the other hand, look foolproof!
