Funfetti Coffee Creamer

I am way too in love with funfetti. And cake batter. And sprinkles. I want everything to taste like cake.

My coffee is included in that. Introducing coffee’s new BFF: Funfetti Coffee Creamer.

Funfetti Coffee Creamer - make your coffee taste like cake!

About a million years ago, I posted a recipe for Cake Batter Coffee Creamer. It was one one of my first “viral” posts, which is laughable to me now because, in comparison to the Funfetti Gooey Bars, well. There really is no comparison.

{Don’t judge my photos, mmkay? I tell myself I leave those there because it’s good to know how far you’ve come.}

That post happened at what I think was the beginning of the cake batter craze. E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G got a dunk in cake batter, and I did my fair share! At one point I think I had 7 open boxes of different cake mix flavors in my cabinet. If the apocalypse had happened we could have lived comfortably on dry cake mix and peanut butter for the rest of our days.

Then somehow I found out about butter extract. I believe it was from Sally, who is the queen of funfetti. Butter extract makes whatever you add it to taste like cake.

{Well, within reason. I mean, butter extract on broccoli would probably just be…gross.}

I’ve been wanting to redo that post forever and now that I’m a funfetti addict, I figured it was time.

This coffee creamer is funfetti-tabulous!

Hot or iced, Funfetti Coffee Creamer makes coffee taste like cake!

My BFF Aimee at Shugary Sweets is on a coffee creamer binge, which is what made me remember I wanted to redo this recipe. Then when were were hanging out in Miami talking about upcoming recipes, she said I should rim the coffee glass with sprinkles.

That was one of those BAM! moments. I mean, does this coffee get any prettier? Plus, it’s kind of hard to convey the whole “funfetti” thing with a cup of coffee. It looks like I’m pouring milk into the glass – you have no idea that it’s a sweet and sugary cake flavored delight.

But when you add sprinkles to the shot, it’s pretty much a given. Sprinkles = Funfetti = Love.

Oh, and you know what is better than coffee with funfetti creamer? ICED coffee with funfetti creamer, Cool Whip and tons of sprinkles.

Funfetti Coffee Creamer - perfect for your iced coffee!

Making your own coffee creamer is probably the easiest thing ever. You only need 2 ingredients for the base recipe: sweetened condensed milk and milk. I used fat-free for both, but you can use what you like. I haven’t done it, but I’m pretty sure you could also sub almond milk or coconut milk for the nonfat/regular milk.

You just heat those two things together until they’re melted together, then add flavorings. There are so many variations, but this one has vanilla extract and butter extract. That gives this the distinct flavor of cake. #win

If you don’t drink coffee, you can use this in so many other things. It would be awesome in a milkshake or hot chocolate, or on ice cream. It’s like drinking liquid cake!

The creamer gives some sweetness and flavor to your coffee, so you can have cake for breakfast and feel okay about it.

Then you can have cake again for a snack, and again after lunch in an iced coffee.

It’s funfetti all day long. That’s a good day, in my book.

Funfetti Coffee Creamer

Sorry, I really loved these photos and couldn’t choose which to put in the post. So I used them all.

Did you know that when you spill sprinkles all over shaggy carpet, they kind of disappear? But when you drop them all over (brand new) laminate wood floors, they crunch under your feet and really show? #whoknew

I wanted to shout “Clean up on aisle dining room!!” but then I realized the cleaning crew is…me.

Funfetti Coffee Creamer - make your coffee taste like cake!

If you love cake batter or funfetti and you’re as addicted to coffee as I am, you need this in your life.

Be sure to rim your mug. It’ll make you smile, and if you’re like me, you need that at 6am!

  40. So much cuteness going on here!! The sprinkles (absolutely adorable of course!), the photos (they’re all gorgeous, so you shouldn’t have to choose which ones you include! Besides, you’ve seen how many I post in my recipes — I’m the most indecisive person in the world!), and your “Clean up aisle dining room!” I think you totally should’ve tried shouting it, just to see if Mel would come downstairs. Or at least laugh!

  41. You should make a funfetti section that had just funfetti foods and drinks!

  42. Really good photos!! They have my mouth watering already with shots of your coffee creamer. Must save this recipe, thanks.

  43. As I was obsessively researching cake recipes for my husbands birthday cake I came across a cookbook, momofuku, that says to use imitation vanilla extract in funfetti type things to give it that true box cake funfetti taste we all love. Thought that might help you kick this up a notch ☺️ Can’t wait to make it for the hubby.
