First, add a layer of parchment paper to a cake turntable and top with the first vegan cake. Add about ⅓-1/2 cup of vegan frosting on top and use a cake spatula to evenly smooth this frosting on top. It's okay if the frosting pour over the sides of the cake. Then, add the next layer of cake on top.
Continue this process until all three layers of cake are stacked and frosted. Then, add on the crumb coat of frosting. Add a light layer of frosting to the sides of the cak, making use to fill in the gaps between layers with frosting. Then, use a cake scraper to smooth it out. It's okay if this layer isn't perfect as it's purpose is to trap in any stray cake crumbs.
Once the crumb coat is complete, add the cake back to the fridge and let it sit for at least 30 minutes before adding the final layer of frosting. I like to add the remaining frosting back to the fridge at this time to firm up.
After 30 minutes, remove the layer cake and frosting from the fridge. Set aside ¼ cup of frosting to color and pipe as a top border for later. Then, take the remaining frosting and frost the cake. Use a cake scraper to even out the frosting on the sides and top of the cake.
Once the cake is frosted, take a handful of sprinkles and press it onto the sides of the cake. Sprinkles can also be added on top, but make sure to leave room for the colorful frosting border.
As a final step, take the ¼ cup of frosting that was set aside and add it to a small bowl with your choice of food coloring. Add it to a piping bag and pipe a colorful border around the top of the cake.
Add the cake back to the fridge to firm up before serving. Cut into even slices and enjoy!
