This buttery-vanilla-buttermilk cake recipe that I found on Sally’s Baking Addition makes a grand splash all dressed up for Valentine’s Day! Frosted with vanilla pink buttercream and decorated with red, gold, and pink sprinkles, this cake comes to life with the addition of red gummy lips perched on toothpicks.

Although made from scratch, this cake has easy instructions and cooks up very quickly. The recipe includes enough batter for 3 9-inch cake layers.
With the addition of sprinkles, lips, and pink food coloring, this cake becomes a Valentine’s Day treat. However, you can use other sprinkle colors and decorations for other occasions, or none at all for a buttery yellow cake with white frosting.
