A friend of mine posted this on Facebook, so I decided to post it here.
It’s my first ever birthday cake recipe, so don’t take this as a recipe from me, but rather a recipe I’ve been working on over the last few months.
This cake has a ton of flavors and textures, so be prepared to try them all!
This cake will be an absolute hit with the kids, as it’s incredibly simple and easy to make.
I love that this cake is so easy to get started with, it can be a great starter cake to add to your weekend lunchbox or a birthday dessert.
You can bake it in advance and make it ahead, or just let it cool before you bake.
I’m going to make the first cake and then add more as I get more ideas.
