Birthday Cake Milkshake Recipe

Milkshake Week continues with this ridiculously creamy and delicious Birthday Cake Milkshake! My favorite milkshake ever!

Yep, continuing on with milkshake week. It would be wrong not to, wouldn’t it?

This installment brings you a Birthday Cake Milkshake.

Because really, what’s better than drinking cake? Yeah, let me answer that for you…nothing.

There is nothing better than drinking cake.

Except maybe winning the lottery.


This is the most ridiculously easy milkshake ever..but my extra-extra addition is to completely coat the inside of the glass with frosting.

Because while cake flavored stuff is all well and fine. It cannot truly be a birthday cake without frosting.

Oh and sprinkles. But that’s a given.

So here’s my take on the Birthday Cake Milkshake.

The best milkshake ever! Like drinking birthday cake!

Tips for Making The Best Birthday Drink’s my super secret trick…plop some frosting down there in the glass and smear it up the sides.

Very scientific.

Coat the glass with frosting before you pour in your milkshake!

And yep, blend all your other stuff together and pour it in!

I bought a pre-made pound cake to use as a garnish, but feel free to use the rest of your cake mix to bake a cake. 3 Tbsp of cake mix missing won’t make a noticeable difference in the finished product. I Promise…but if you’re worried about it, just add in a few tablespoons of flour.

So basically alls I am saying is get in your kitchen now and give these a try…have I convinced you yet?

  1. Found this recipe the other day, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. So I finally decide to make it- no cake mix in the house. Have no fear! I was able to use more icing and almond extract and it tasted just fine. I bet your version tested better, though. Oh well, at least I have an excuse to make it again!

  2. Imagine if this was made with cake batter ice cream as well…WHOA. That icing on the sides trick is genius!
