  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, water, melted butter, and eggs. Whisk until thick, smooth, and glossy. This will take about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Stir in 1/4 cup of sprinkles.
  4. Step 4

    Preheat the waffle iron to low and brush with oil or coat with non-stick cooking spray to prevent sticking. Spoon a small amount of waffle cake batter into each well and cook through (consult your waffle maker manual). Repeat with the remaining batter as needed.
  5. Step 5

    Remove the waffles from the waffle iron, separate into individual squares, and let cool. Frost each square with an even amount of icing. Stack the layers as high as you like for the cake.
  6. Step 6

    Frost the outside of the waffle cake with additional frosting. Pour the remaining cup of sprinkles onto a rimmed plate.
  7. Step 7

    Press the frosting into the remaining sprinkles, coating all sides. Refrigerate to set until ready to serve.
  8. Step 8

    Top the cake with candles and slice to serve.
