When I was testing this recipe, I combined butter, cream cheese, pudding mix, vanilla, and almond extract in a bowl…then I almost stopped there…but I’m SO glad I didn’t.

I thought maybe the dip was a little bit too thick so I decided to stir in an entire tub of cool whip…obviously. 😉 Then I finished it off with a ton of sprinkles. And this magical dessert dip was born!

This funfetti cake batter dip is perfectly sweet, oh-so-fluffy, and ultra-creamy. Serve it up with some nilla wafers and it’s a cake batter lovers dream come true!


This combination of ingredients makes the lightest, fluffiest, sweetest, creamiest dessert dip of all time!

  • Butter and Cream Cheese – the base of the dip. Provide a creamy texture.
  • Sugar – adds sweetness.
  • Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix – adds that vanilla cake flavor.
  • Vanilla Extract and Almond Extract – enhance other flavors.
  • Salt – cuts the sweetness just a little.
  • Sprinkles – because what’s funfetti without a TON of sprinkles? 😉
  • Cool Whip – makes it extra light and fluffy.
  • Nilla Wafers – for serving.

How to make

Sweet treats don’t get any easier than this!

  1. Use a hand-mixer to beat together butter and cream cheese.
  2. Add in sugar, pudding mix, vanilla and almond extract, and salt.
  3. Beat in sprinkles.
  4. Fold in cool whip until well combined then serve and enjoy!

Can you use homemade whipped cream?

I like using cool whip because it’s lighter and fluffier, but you can also make your own. Just make sure you whip it really well!

Pro tip
Let homemade whipped cream chill in the fridge for a couple of hours before making your dip so it has time to firm up.


I LOVE this funfetti cake batter dip as-is, but if you want to switch it up here are some possible variations!

What to serve with funfetti dip

  • Cookies. Nilla wafers, golden Oreos, or these homemade sugar cookies!
  • Crackers. Graham crackers, animal crackers, or pretzels.
  • Fruit. Strawberries, apple slices, pineapple, or grapes.

You can also just eat it by the spoonful which is often my preferred method. 😉

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 (3.4 oz) package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract optional, but delicious
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles
  • 1 (8 oz) tub Cool Whip could use equal parts whipped cream instead
  • Nilla Wafers for dipping


  • Using your hand mixer, beat together butter and cream cheese in a large bowl.
  • Once fluffy, beat in sugar, pudding mix, vanilla, almond extract, and salt.
  • Once combined, slowly beat in sprinkles.
  • Fold in cool whip until combined.
  • Serve with ‘nilla wafer cookies!


*Best served immediately (because the sprinkles don’t have a chance to “bleed” into batter), but you can also cover with saran wrap and store in the fridge. Leave out at room temperature for about 15-30 minutes before serving or mixture will be too firm!
