Sprite Cake.....from Bakerella

My favorite new site for cooking is Bakerella!! I just found it last night as I was blog-hopping(you will find the link on the side bar). This lady is truly talented and artistic!! I would love to be able to stay home and do what she does everyday!!:)
Tonight the boys and I made our first recipe from her site....Sprite Cake. You can see the boys loved licking the beater.....I didn't let them have much since it has quite a few eggs. :( We don't want sick tummies. AHHH! I also made the buttercream frosting to top it with. I can hardly wait to try some. :) More recipes to come as I bake more from her site! I would really like to tackle her cupcake pops..check them out on her site.
Yummy, Yummy!!

Simple Sprite Cake
1 white cake mix
4 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 box instant vanilla pudding (3 oz. size)
8 oz. can of Sprite (the mini one)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour two 9 inch cake pans.
Mix ingredients on low until combined and then increase speed to medium and mix for about 2 minutes.
Pour batter into pans and bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Buttercream Frosting
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1b. 10X powdered sugar
1-3 teaspoons milk, half and half or cream
Using a mixer, cream softened butter and vanilla with until smooth.
Add sugar gradually, allowing butter and sugar to cream together before adding more.
If you want it a little creamier, add a teaspoon of milk at a time and beat on high until you get the right texture.
