Birthday Cake Milkshakes-yes you can make them at home and it doesn't have to be on your Birthday!


 It’s hard to believe I been writing this blog for a whole year already. What started out as a project for my girls and I to bake together in the kitchen has turned into so much more. As a SAHM it’s given me something to do while the kids are in school. It’s opened up a whole new world of supportive friends who all share the same love of all things sweet and yummy.  I’m so thankful for all of it and all of you.

I’ve learned so much about blogging, facebook, pinterest and food photography. I started out not having a clue. A dear friend came over to my house and showed me  how to get started and I just went from there. Thank you Tracy! It’s not nearly as much as I need to know. I’m still learning. I’ve decided there may be a few out there wanting to jump into the bloggy world so I’ll be sharing over the next few months a few tips that have helped me go from really bad photos that no one saw because I didn’t know how to share them (thank goodness for small favors) to decent photos that are seen by an average of 2000 views a day.

So onto the celebration! This was really just an excuse to make a milkshake. My older daughter has been bugging me for weeks to get her a Zaxby’s Birthday Cake Milkshake. First off, fast food places charge way too much for milkshakes. And we’re a family of 5. Let’s do the math, 5 x $4 = $20 for milkshakes? I don’t think so. Plus, we recently had a bad milkshake experience at a major chain. I won’t name them but they rhyme with Tonic. I love their cheeseburgers. Being lured in on ½ price after 8pm, hubby and I snuck over there one night to surprise the kids. Five 32 oz milkshakes for $10.60. Oh yeah baby, what a deal. Always remember, you get what you pay for. They advertise real ice cream but maybe the milk is fake? I don’t know but when everyone starts passing down their mostly full milkshake to the next kid in line…let’s just say we won’t fall for that one again.

Luckily for me, Sarah from Fantastical Sharing of Recipes linked up her Cupcake Milkshake at Thursday’s Treasures. Oh yes, I’ll just make them at home.  I didn’t have any canned frosting but I did have everything else on hand. And if I didn’t care for it, I wouldn’t be out $20. I had no need to worry, these are the new favorite in our house, and so, so easy!

Birthday Cake Milkshakes

Yield: 2 milkshakes

Birthday Cake Milkshakes


  • Makes 2
  • 1 cup milk
  • 5-6 large scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 3-4 tablespoon yellow or white cake mix
  • Sprinkles
  • Corn syrup


  1. All the measurements are estimates, everyone scoops differently, do what works for your blender.
  2. Prepare your glass. Place about 2 tablespoons of sprinkles in the bottom of a small bowl; you want your bowl just a bit larger than the mouth of your glass. Using your finger, rub corn syrup around the rim of your glass then place rim in sprinkles, moving around a bit to get good coverage. Repeat with second glass and set aside.
  3. Place milk, ice cream and cake mix in blender and blend until, you know, milkshake consistency. Pour into prepared glasses and top with the remaining sprinkles in your bowl. No waste.
  4. Add a straw and enjoy!


you can add sprinkles into the blender with the other ingredients but we found it just clogged the straw and made it harder to drink.
