How to Prepare
  • Methods:

    • First of all, you need to preheat the oven to 350°.
    • Take a square cake pan and a round cake pan. Line both the pans with parchment paper or you can grease the pans with ghee or butter and dust some flour in them. Make sure they are well coated with all-purpose flour.
    • Take a large mixing bowl and beat two large eggs along with 1 cup of sugar and butter each. Make sure you keep beating the eggs, butter and sugar until sugar dissolves completely.
    • Once the sugar dissolves completely and the eggs turn out to be fluffy, add the vanilla extract.
    • Now take another large bowl, mix all-purpose flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt in it. Whisk everything together.
    • Once everything is mixed well, add the dry mixture into the eggs, butter and sugar mixture in little quantities. While you add the dry mixture in little quantities, keep beating the same to make sure everything gets combined well.
    • Now add vinegar, buttermilk and red food coloring into the batter and beat till the batter is mixed well.
    • Now it's time for dividing the batter into both the pans. Make sure you do not fill the pan completely. Let there be some room for allowing the batter to double in size while baking.
    • Bake the cake for 25-30 minutes.
    • After baking for 25-30 minute, insert a toothpick into the cake to check if the toothpick comes out clean. If yes, then the cake is baked well else you will need to bake it further for a few more minutes.
    • Once you are done baking, allow the cake to cool down and then you can invert the cake.
    • Now let us prepare the frosting for the cake. For this, mix cream cheese and butter in a separate bowl until smooth.
    • Add the powdered sugar and beat until sugar melts down completely.
    • Once the sugar gets dissolved completely, add vanilla and salt into the mixture. Now mix everything until combined.
    • After this, cut the round cake into two equal halves. Place both the halves on two adjacent sides of the square such that one of the vertices points at you.
    • Frost the entire cake with the cream cheese and garnish with the colourful sprinkles.
    • Serve the cake with love.
