Cosmic Crisp® Funfetti Cake



  • 2 Cosmic Crisp® apples, grated
  • 1 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups cane sugar
  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  • 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup rainbow sprinkles, plus more for decoration


  • 1 ½ cups salted butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 4-6 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp buttermilk


  1. Strain any excess liquid from the grated apples in a fine mesh sieve or strainer. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer for about 1 minute. Add the eggs and beat again until combined.
  3. Mix in the avocado oil, vanilla, greek yogurt, buttermilk, and grated apple until just combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients except the sprinkles. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until just combined. Do not overmix. Carefully fold in the sprinkles with a spatula until just combined.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line three 8-9” cake pans with parchment paper.
  6. Divide the batter evenly between the three cake pans. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Begin checking at the 20 minute mark as all ovens are different!
  7. Let cool in the pans for about 20-30 minutes before carefully transferring to a cooling rack to finish cooling completely.
  8. To make the frosting, place the softened butter into a large mixing bowl along with the vanilla and buttermilk. Beat with an electric mixer until light and airy, about 1 minute. Add 1 cup of powdered sugar at a time, mixing between. At the 4 cup mark, check to see if the consistency is as desired, and add more powdered sugar if needed.
  9. Assemble the cake by dividing the frosting by 3, spreading evenly between each layer, and evenly on top. Decorate the top of the cake with more sprinkles if desired and enjoy!
