DIY Three Tiered Party Cake Only Needs to Cost a Few Dollars

This is an impressive three tiered cake idea that just about ANYONE could throw together in minutes. And cheap, yep I believe so.

Here is what to do.................

  1. Get the best cook in the house to cook up a few sponge cakes of different sizes or
  2. Grab them from from the local cake shop or
  3. The least appealing........ straight off your supermarket shelf.
Sponge cake freezes really well for a week or two which makes this party cake even more appealing. Make sure that your cake is at room temperature when you decorate it or the colors from the sprinkles will bleed.

Once you have your sponges you will need:

  • whipped cream
  • jam
  • loads of sprinkles
  • bamboo skewers
  1. Cut your sponges through their middles and sandwich them together with cream and the jam.
  2. Grab a spatula and fully cover  the tops and sides with a thin layer of cream also. Go light on the cream in the middle of the cakes so it is not too hard to cut when you are serving. 
  3. Pour your sprinkles into a tray that has sides so that the little guys don't roll too far away.
  4. Laying the smallest sponge, top down, into the sprinkles and then remove. 
  5. Do the same with the other two sponges and then roll all three sponge sides in the sprinkles. 
  6. Secure with the skewers through the middle of the cakes to keep it all stable.
