This has been the summer of desserts for me. Most weekends, I hole up in my kitchen and make some kind of a baked good (or three) to be featured on my blog, and also because I just love desserts, ya know?  As much as I love cooking, I also love baking, maybe even a smidge more. During the week, I plan out what I want to make for the weekend, and then I usually split my recipes between Saturdays and Sundays, depending on what I have planned for those days. Sometimes I make everything on Saturdays, sometimes only Sundays, but whatever the case may be, there’s a lot of action going on!

      I’m glad you can relate, Taylor! Funfetti is my weakness! So many possibilities! Thanks so much for the kind words and for stopping by!

    It’s so true Gayle, I’ll be surfing Pinterest to look for a new recipe but unless someone “I know” (well, blogging friends are still friends!) tries it, I’m hesitant. Why? Because I don’t want to try a recipe that’s not going to work out for me if that’s possible. I only want to spend so much time in the kitchen! So I love it when you hole up in your kitchen trying fun recipes like Funfetti bars that you’ll vouch for. Then I feel it’s safe to try =) These bars are too pretty.

      I’m the same way as you, Laura. I always read all of the comments from pinterest recipes to see if anyone else has tried it first. These bars turned out amazing, and I wish I would’ve made them sooner!

      Ha ha it should be, Allison! :) I’m so glad you like these recipes! I’m trying not to go overboard with the funfetti-ness, but there’s just so many different possibilities!

    • Gayle says

    There is just something so delicious about funfetti! I rarely make dessert these days because I know that I will eat the entire pan, so that is a great idea to make your husband take them to work! It really is dangerous to have any form of baked goods in the house, I just can’t help myself and I know that i could probably devour all this funfetti cake in a few minutes :)

      Glad you’re the same with devouring desserts, Izzy! More often than not, I send my husband to work with my bakes goods or give them away to family because I just can’t control myself around them!

    • Gayle says

      These are so addicting, Sarah! That’s why I had to send my husband to work with these…I kept sneaking a bite every time I walked into the kitchen!

    • Gayle says

      I do have a slight addiction to cake batter! And I think I make too many sweets around my house, my counters are full of baked goods every weekend. Though that’s not horrible, right?!

    • Gayle says

      I would definitely share if I had any of these left, Christin! My husband’s co-workers devoured these, so there was nothing left!

    • Gayle says

      White chocolate definitely gives these bars an added touch! And I’m so glad that you aren’t tired of funfetti yet, although I agree…who would be? :)

    • Gayle says

      Sounds like this would be perfect for you and your niece! And eating your creation would definitely be the best part. Thanks, Dannii!

    • Gayle says

      Funfetti cookies are delicious, too! And I’m so glad you found my blog, Melissa! Thanks so much for the kind words and for stopping by!

    I’m loving all of your funfetti and cake batter recipes! These look so delicious and I love that there is cream cheese in the batter too. I’d love to make a batch of these, but I’m afraid I’d eat them all ;) I just need an excuse to make these now!

      Oh I keep meaning to ask you too, what plugin is it that you use for the e-mail subscriptions at the top? I love it, but can’t figure out what it is!

      • Gayle says

        The plugin is through a website called But in order to use it for email subscriptions, your subscription tool needs to be outside of wordpress. So if you use jetpack through wordpress to send out your posts, then it won’t work. When my site was redesigned, I moved all of my subscribers that I had through jetpack into mailchimp ( It’s really easy to use, free, and I can totally customize how I want my emails to look whenever a new post goes out! So if you use a service like that, then you can customize the bar that I have at the top of my site for yours! Hope this helps some! If you have anymore questions, feel free to let me know! :)

    • Gayle says

      Thanks, Danielle! I’m so glad you like these recipes. I didn’t trust myself with these bars around the house, so I made my husband take them to work. I was sad to see them go, but I have no will power when it comes to anything with cake batter!

    • Gayle says

      Thanks, Denise! Sprinkles do make everything better, and the cream cheese gives these bars extra moisture and flavor!

  5. says

    We’re on the same baking schedule, Gayle! I love it most of the time, but sometimes I just want the weekend to be lazy.
    I’d love some of these! They look so amazing and cheery and summery! I want bright colors in my food as long as possible!

      I agree, I want lazy weekends too, but then I feel guilty about not being in the kitchen! :) And these are definitely so fun for the summer!

    • Gayle says

      Ha ha it would be so easy to keep shoving these bars in. They were quite addicting, so my husband to them to work with him. Thanks so much for the kind words and pin, Jocelyn!
