These cakes are so easy to make. Just press a cake mix based crust into your pan. Stir together cream cheese, eggs and sugar (I told you it was going to be good!) and spread over the crust. Add more sprinkles, then just few more for good measure. Bake. Try to wait for it to cool and devour! The hardest part will be convincing yourself not to make it weekly.

My little sister Chloe is the master of warming microwave desserts in the microwave. She warms them all up before eating it. I wasn't sure about warm ooey gooey cake, but it was pretty darn good. So feel free to warm a piece to try... or use this as a license to not let your cake cool completely before you dig in. I'm not judging!
