Notes: So, you can buy one of these in the store, but why?? You can make one so easily!!! You can use any color sprinkles, just be sure not to use the sugar, jimmies or the little balls only. I had mainly Christmas colored ones, so mine is in celebration of a holiday far away. This cake we kind of ate for breakfast, and I must admit, I was the main eater of this dessert. It was so good!!! Moist and delicious! The cocoa is just for come color and flavor, you can sub it with flour if you want a bright white cake, and the almond can be subbed with vanilla if you like.
