Birthday Layer Cake {Milk Bar Monday 6/18}

Hello everyone! I hope you have been enjoying the guest post recipes this week. I know I have!

Today we are taking a little break… I am back at it with our next Milk Bar Monday installment! Our host for today was Audra and she chose the Birthday Layer Cake.

Christina Tosi’s goal with this recipe was to recreate the funfetti boxed cake mix flavors in her own way.

The bf & I thought her recipe was spot on. We both loved the cake crumb layers in with the frosting layers. It reminded me of when I used to get the crunch layer in my DQ ice cream cake.

Compared to some of our past recipes I thought this was a relatively easy one. I was able to get it all done in one go and freeze it overnight.

You can easily make this at home (with the help of a cake ring) and impress your loved ones on their next birthday.
