RAINBOW SPRINKLE CAKE SLICES

1 (16.5-ounce) package white cake mix with pudding in the mix
1 cup water
2/3 cup vegetable oil

Increase speed to medium; beat 2 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup candy sprinkles. Transfer to prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 28 to 33 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Frost with Whipped Cream Frosting; garnish with candy sprinkles. Cut into slices. Makes 30 servings.
