    I made this cake for a birthday celebration and it looked beautiful and tasted great! I don't eat dairy, so i substituted the milk with 1C lite coconut milk (the kind in the can) mixed with 1 TBS white vinegar. The coconut milk and vinegar is a great replacement for buttermilk. I used Wilton Rainbow sprinkles. While they looked beautiful on the outside of the cake, the colors ran in the batter. The cake turned into a kind of purple. So make sure you use sprinkles where the colors won't run.
