Everybody loves dessert. It’s pretty much the only reason we choked down dinner as kids; we knew at the end we would be rewarded with something full of sugar. Any parent knows just how important a role dessert plays in the lives of their children.

Few desserts are as delicious as cake. Cake has the trifecta of sugary goodness: layers, icing and sprinkles. It’s hard to think someone can improve such an amazing combination!
