Funfetti White Russian — the cocktail that doubles as dessert

Sprinkles make everything just a little more fun. I just made my niece’s first birthday cake last month and decided to do a mini four-layer fruit and buttercream cake completely coated in nonpareil sprinkles. Let me tell you, you’ve not seen a disaster of a kitchen until you try to affix sprinkles that bounce all over the counter and throughout the house onto a cake for 45 minutes. What. A. Mess.

Fortunately this Funfetti White Russian isn’t quite as messy in the making, but it’s definitely still just as much fun. Cake batter-flavored vodka (yes, this is a real thing!) and rainbow sprinkles turn the classic adult beverage into an almost kid-like fun experience with each sip.
