  3. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar together on high speed for 3 full minutes. Scrape down the sides and up the bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.

  4. Turn the mixer down to medium-high speed and beat in the eggs and vanilla extract until combined. Scrape down the sides and up the bottom of the bowl as needed. Beat in the sour cream.

  5. Add ½ of the cake flour mixture-dry ingredients and ½ of the milk and beat on low speed until combined. Add the remaining dry ingredients and milk and beat on low speed until combined. Do not overmix this batter.

  6. Whisk batter by hand to make sure there are no lumps at the bottom of the bowl.

  7. Spread the cake batter into the prepared pan. Smooth it out into a thin, even layer.

  8. Bake for 36 to 40 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Make sure to rotate the cake pan once or twice during bake time.

  9. Remove from the oven and allow the cake to cool in the pan placed on a wire rack. As the cake cools, make the frosting.

  1. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on high speed for about 2 minutes until pale, smooth, and creamy.

  2. Using a fine-mesh strainer or sieve, sift the confectioners’ sugar and cocoa together. Add the sugar-cocoa mixture to the butter, then beat on low speed for 20 seconds.

  3. Stop the mixer, then add the milk, corn syrup, vanilla, and salt. Beat on medium-high speed for 2 minutes. If the frosting is too thick, beat in an extra splash of milk.

  4. Frost cooled cake and top with sprinkles.

  5. Slice and serve.
