  1. Preheat oven to 450F; line a 12×17 inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper; set aside
  2. In a mixing bowl, add eggs, egg yolks and 1/2 cup sugar; with the paddle attachment, mix on medium high speed for 5 minutes until it is pale in color and thick; add the vanilla extract; beat for a few more seconds
  3. Sift the flour and cornstarch over the egg mixture; with a spatula fold in the flour/cornstarch; fold in the edible confetti
  4. In another bowl, add 2 egg whites and 1 tablespoon sugar; whisk until firm peaks form; with a spatula, fold the whipped egg white into the egg yolk mixture
  5. Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan, spread evenly; bake for 6-7 minutes until golden brown, springs back when you touch it
  6. Right after removing the cake from the oven, sprinkle with powdered sugar; invert cake onto a clean dish towel; remove parchment paper; sprinkle with more powered sugar; roll cake up with the towel; place on wire rack to cool
  7. Vanilla buttercream: in a bowl, add butter; use the whisk attachment to whip the butter for 2-3 minutes on medium high speed
  8. Lower the speed; slowly add the powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time
  9. Once all the sugar has been incorporated increased the speed; mix for 2 minutes
  10. Add heavy cream until the desired consistency has been reached; fold in the sprinkles with a spatula
  11. Gently unroll the cooled cake; evenly spread the buttercream all over the cake
  12. Roll up the cake again, without the towel; place in fridge for a few hours
  13. Decorate: melt the white chocolate; pour over cake; add more sprinkles; let chocolate settle before slicingĀ
