Have Your Cake and Drink it Too

Cake. The quintessential birthday dessert. How do you like your cake? I like my cake to be super light and fluffy. The frosting shouldn’t be taller than the cake itself. And sprinkles? Well, they just make the cake taste 20 times better.

Oh and you know how I’m a sucker for pretty packaging? I’m also a sucker for really pretty cakes and cupcakes.





In my belly.

Like NOW.

With all this talk about cake, you’re probably thinking that I made one. Unfortunately, no, I didn’t. Instead I made something you can drink. A birthday cake milkshake. Intrigued? Fantastic.


 Birthday cake in a glass. It’s a good thing.
