There’s no food that brings us more joy than funfetti. Its colors are wonderfully bright, its taste is so overly sweet that we can’t help but love it, and its sugar content literally makes us smile. This childhood favorite still holds a special place in our heart. Here are our six of our favorite ways to embrace our inner child by cooking with this amazing ingredient.
Funfetti is served in its most simple format in this classic Australian childhood treat. Whether you treat yourself to a slice of fairy bread for breakfast, or have it alongside a cup of coffee in the late morning, this pretty treat always makes us endlessly happy. We are keen to copy the Australian tradition and have this at every kid’s birthday party from now on.

Gluten-Free Funfetti Cake Doughnuts
Just because you’re eating gluten-free doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the joy of funfetti.

Top with icing and an extravagant amount of colorful, glittering sprinkles.
