To prepare the scones:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a sheet pan with a sheet of parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, salt, sugar, and sprinkles until combined. In a measuring cup, combine the heavy cream and vanilla. Pour the cream mixture on the dry ingredients and fold or stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until evenly combined. Sprinkle in a tablespoon or two more flour if the dough I too sticky. It should be moist enough that there aren’t any dry pieces not sticking to the dough, not not so sticky that the dough is watery or doesn’t hold its shape.
  3. On a floured surface, bring the dough together to be smooth and divide it into two equal sized pieces. Pat each piece of dough out into a flat  6” circle. Do not overwork the dough. Transfer the dough to the pans, spacing out the two pieces. Using a sharp knife, cut each circle into 6 wedges. Brush the tops with heavy cream using a pastry brush. Place the pan of scones in the fridge or freezer for 10-15 minutes to rest as this will help the scones to rise well. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until the edges of the scones have browned and the center of the scones are no longer doughy. Allow the scones to cool for about 10 minutes before covering or piping with glaze.
  4. To prepare the glaze, combine the confectioner’s sugar with the vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon of milk. Add more to achieve your desired consistency. Spoon or drizzle the glaze on top of the cooled scones and sprinkle with additional sprinkles if desired. Enjoy!


  • Cake flour and clear vanilla extract lend a box mix cake flavor that we all know and love. If desired, you can substitute all-purpose flour and regular vanilla extract, although, please note that the flavor will change.
