Birthday Cake Milkshake

A Birthday Cake Milkshake - the perfect combination, ice cream and cake all in one

Celebrate your birthday with a Birthday Cake Milkshake this year! I originally posted this recipe over at my friend Kristen’s blog. I knew she would post this during her birthday week so I texted to ask her what her favorite birthday cake was and she had a hard time coming up with an answer for me but one thing was clear, she loves sprinkles.  What birthday would be complete without sprinkles, lots of sprinkles.  A birthday also requires cake and ice cream so I decided to combine the two in a [Continue Reading…]

Pink Lemonade Cake


For dessert at my mother’s 80th birthday party I served cupcakes.  No big surprise there!

Even though I love cake I rarely bake cakes, except for birthdays although many times my children request something else other than a cake for their birthday treat. But I [Continue Reading…]
