  1. Prepare the Oven and Pans:
    • Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease and line the bottoms of three 8-inch cake pans with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, salt, and baking powder.
  3. Cream Butter and Sugar:
    • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add Egg Whites and Liquids:
    • Add the egg whites one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Then, mix in the oil, vanilla, and almond extract.
  5. Combine with Dry Ingredients and Milk:
    • Alternately add the dry ingredients and milk to the butter mixture, starting and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  6. Fold in Sprinkles:
    • Gently fold in the rainbow sprinkles.
  7. Bake:
    • Divide the batter evenly among the prepared pans. Bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Make Frosting:
    • While the cakes cool, beat the butter for the frosting until smooth. Gradually add powdered sugar, salt, vanilla, and almond extract. Beat in milk until the frosting is smooth and spreadable.
  9. Assemble and Frost the Cake:
    • Once the cakes are cool, remove from pans and stack them with a layer of frosting between each layer. Frost the outside of the cake.
  10. Decorate:
    • Decorate with additional sprinkles as desired.
