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

- Makes 2
- 1 cup milk
- 5-6 large scoops vanilla ice cream
- 3-4 tablespoon yellow or white cake mix
- Corn syrup
- All the measurements are estimates, everyone scoops differently, do what works for your blender.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
