As traditional birthday cakes become a go-to dessert once again, food blogs like Sweetapolita are looking for new ways to revamp classic dessert recipes--take this cake's marshmallow frosting and sprinkled garnish.

Made with a blend of flour, confectioners' sugar and a hint of salt, this sprinkled cake recipe is sweet but surprisingly light thanks to its egg white ingredients. The dessert marshmallow frosting is also a light and tasty feature that will remind foodies of childhood camping trips.

The frosting is made from a blend of vanilla bean paste or pure vanilla extract and even features hints of almond flavors. This revamped birthday cake boasts a pink, sprinkled look and is airy in its texture. Inspired by traditional desserts, this recipe is easy to recreate at home and is perfect for budget-conscious bakers.
