  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line two 8-inch or three 6-inch cake pans with parchment paper. Spray pans and parchment with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together four, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Cream butter on medium-high speed with an electric mixer or stand mixer. Add sugar and mix until fluffy
  4. Add egg whites, vanilla, and butter flavoring; mix well.
  5. Add half of flour mixture and half of milk to sugar mixture. Mix until ingredients are just combined. Add remaining flour mixture and milk; mix until completely combined.
  6. Stir in rainbow sprinkles, stirring as little as possible to prevent the colors from bleeding.
  7. Divide batter among cake pans and bake for 25-28 minutes, or until cakes are lightly golden on top and a toothpick inserted into the center of each layer comes out clean.
  8. Let cakes cool in pans for 5-10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  2. Add half of powdered sugar and mix well. Add remaining powdered sugar and mix until combined.
  3. Spread frosting between layers of cake. Add sprinkles to frosting and spread frosting around the outside of the cake. Reserve about a cup of frosting to pipe swirls on top of the cake, if desired.

  1. Add pink candy melts and heavy cream to a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Stir continuously until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Use a piping bag or squeeze bottle to add the drips around the edges of the cake and spread more over the top of the cake.
  2. Once set, add swirls of frosting around the edges of the top of the cakes. Add sprinkles and cookie crumbles, if desired.
