  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

White Buttercream Frosting Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4-5 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-4 tablespoons heavy cream or milk
  • Pinch of salt


  • 12 mini rectangle cake pans
  • Mixing bowls
  • Electric mixer
  • Measuring cups and spoons


For the Cake:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour the mini cake pans or line them with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Mix dry ingredients: In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add butter and milk: To the dry ingredients, add the softened butter and milk. Mix on medium speed until just combined.
  4. Incorporate eggs and vanilla: Add the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract, beating well after each addition until the batter is smooth.
  5. Color the batter: Add green food coloring to the batter, a little at a time, mixing thoroughly until you achieve the desired bright green color.
  6. Fill the pans: Divide the batter evenly among the prepared mini rectangle cake pans, filling each about 2/3 full to allow for rising.
  7. Bake: Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  8. Cool: Allow the cakes to cool completely, while you do this you can start on icing!

For the Buttercream Frosting:

  1. Beat the butter: Using an electric mixer, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy, about 2 minutes.
  2. Gradually add powdered sugar: Slowly add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, beating on low speed until combined. Increase speed to high and beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Add vanilla and cream: Mix in the vanilla extract. Add heavy cream or milk, one tablespoon at a time, until the frosting reaches your desired consistency.
  4. Adjust consistency if needed: If the frosting is too thick, add more cream, one tablespoon at a time. If it's too thin, add more powdered sugar, a quarter cup at a time.


  1. Frost the cakes: Use an offset spatula or a piping bag to apply the white buttercream frosting over each mini cake. Ensure each cake is generously covered with frosting.
  2. Decorate: Add your Sprinkle Pop St. Patty's sprinkles and royal icing pieces!
