Funfetti Keto Birthday Cake

I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for a good excuse to eat cake (and any excuse is a good one!). Whether you’ll admit it or not, we all know that the only reason we go to birthday parties is for the cake. Please tell me I’m not the only one!


If you’ve been missing out on birthday parties lately because you can’t handle the temptation of regular birthday cake, that ends today! This delicious Funfetti Keto Birthday Cake has all of the things you love about birthday cake – sprinkles and buttercream frosting!


We’re throwing a birthday party of our own…

February 20th marks one year since my husband and I started this life-changing blog are we are still pinching ourselves! It’s crazy to think that you are actually reading this right now. Like, the fact that I’m not just some crazy person talking to myself is insane. So, THANK YOU for that one.


The Journey Begins


We started this blog about a month after starting keto because we were so excited to share all of the recipes we were creating! Starting keto really opened up a whole new culinary world to us, and we were excited to get to share some of our creations. We started keto because we realized that we had an addiction to sugar and carbs.


We were tired of feeling guilty after every meal, and we wanted to do something to improve our health in the short and long term. Keto turned out to be that “something!” We still have plenty of work to do, but we are so grateful for all that keto has done for us and taught us so far.


Our recipes have been like children to us – it’s impossible for us to choose a favorite. But, let’s just say that some of our “children” have been more popular than others. Here are our top five most popular recipes so far:

At the time of writing, we have published 81 pieces of content that we are proud of and passionate about.


On the day that our blog first launched, we had no idea what to expect. I remember being so shocked when we ended our first day with something like 150 page views. We seriously couldn’t believe that 150 people cared to look at our little website.


And the next day we had a few more visitors, and the next day a few more, and the next day a few more… and after one year of existence, we have somehow convinced  780,000 total visitors to look at our recipes, which is mind blowing.


We were pretty sure that the only people that would ever look at our blog would be our moms, so anything more than 2 total visitors is insanely wonderful. Ma, we made it!

I Couldn’t Do It Without My Butter Half


Since we have started this new chapter in life, Dylan has been my hand model (like in the photo above), tech guy, editor, recipe co-creator, and main supporter. He actually is the one who came up with our name because he knew that we are better together.


Since the beginning of our journey, he has always supported all of my ideas, and to my surprise, he was completely okay with me quitting my job to pursue this new endeavor full-time after seeing what our blog could do.


On September 7, 2018, just seven months after starting the blog, I quit my job and I remember it like it was yesterday. Dylan drove me to the office, and I’ll never forget how good it felt to walk in knowing that it would be the last time I would ever have to set foot in that place. I still get goosebumps thinking about how monumental that day was.


Quitting my job definitely meant making some financial sacrifices and taking a huge life-risk, but he had faith in us that we could take this blog to places we never could have imagined, and we are well on our way!


Another person who has been instrumental in the growth of our blog is my mom, Myriam! She is responsible for many of our popular recipes such as our Best Keto Buns recipe and our Low Carb Apple Crisp recipe. A few times a month she will come over and make recipes that she has already tried out at home and perfected. I will always cherish those times with her! She is also the best cook I know so it is no wonder why her recipes are so popular!

The first time that someone made one of our recipes and tagged us on Instagram, we literally had a 5 minute freak out. It was the absolute craziest thing that someone actually made something from our blog! In the last 12 months, we have been tagged in a bunch of your posts and it is still just as crazy to us!


Any amount of modest success that we have found is completely, 100% because of YOU! The fact that you are looking at our post right now is mind blowing. Thank you so much for your support this first year! We are so excited to continue to grow with you and to keep making delicious food that YOU enjoy! THANK YOU!


Now lets get to what brought you here… this delicious Funfetti Keto Birthday Cake!


How To Make Keto “Sprinkles”

These “sprinkles” are sneaky. Instead of being hardened sugar, they are unsweetened shredded coconut with a few drops of food coloring mixed in. They are the easiest thing to make and take just a few minutes.


How To Make Keto Birthday Cake:

Keto Buttercream Frosting

Growing up, I would ALWAYS request buttercream frosting on my cakes. We have created the perfect keto friendly buttercream frosting to top this cake with. Here’s what you’ll need to make this frosting…


  • Butter
  • Cream cheese
  • Heavy Cream
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Lakanto’s Powdered Monkfruit – Lakanto has a fabulous keto-friendly powdered sweetener! Aftertaste free and it’s what makes the frosting really stand out! Don’t use regular classic sweetener for the buttercream.

Look at all those colorful sprinkles! Obsessed.


For this cake, I used smaller, round pans. If you prefer to use a larger pan, you will definitely want to make a one layer cake or double the recipe. I would also highly recommend that you use parchment paper to line your pans with because it will make it SO much easier to remove these cakes from the pan when they are finished.

  • I made this birthday cake tonight for my sister, who has lost 70 lbs so far with Keto. It was a major success, even the people not on keto loved it! My keto-skeptic husband even had a 2nd piece! The frosting is amazing. Thank you so much for this recipe!

    • Hi, Jenn! Congratulations to your sister, that is amazing! I’m so very happy to hear how much you all loved it and I appreciate you for choosing to make my recipe for the occasion! 🙂

      • OI! I’ve lost 86 lbs! :p But Jenn is right, we all loved it including the brother-in-law. I had assumed I would have a cake-less birthday and boy was I wrong! This is the best cake I’ve ever had, thank you for this recipe 😀

        • Truly amazing, Melanie! Happy Birthday to you also! ☺️ Thank you, that is such a wonderful compliment, I appreciate it so much!

  • Thank you for the terrific recipe. I made it for our work place birthday celebrations. I usually just skip the cake but since my birthday is one of the ones we’re celebrating today I decided I wanted a cake too.
    I made a single layer because my pan was too big. I have to say it’s absolutely delicious and no aftertaste.
    Thanks for sharing!!!

  • This is such an amazing and creative recipe! I made this for my brother-in-law’s birthday and it was a HUGE hit. Thank you! 🙂

  • Has anyone tried making cupcakes or freezing this?our 2 year old daughter is on the keto diet for epilepsy and bday parties are tough bc she can’t eat the cake. I was hoping to make cupcakes to freeze and thaw when we’re going to a party!

  • Might be a dumb question, but could I leave the sprinkles out? I’ve never liked the texture of coconut flakes? Just looking for a plain white or yellow cake. Thanks so much!

  • Does the cake taste like coconut with the coconut sprinkles or are they sorta flavorless since they’re unsweetened flakes? I want to try this for a friends birthday but don’t know if they like coconut.

  • Made this for my husband’s birthday. I added cocoa powder to the icing but it was so good!! I’m not on keto and I loved it too! It was a big hit, all loved it. Thanks for the awesome recipes! Keep up the great work, will def make more of your recipes!! *ps can I share a photo? I’d love to show you my try
