I love classic birthday cake. There’s just something about a moist vanilla cake layered with super-sweet cream and rainbow sprinkles. Birthday cake flavored things are among my favorite snacks – birthday cake Oreos are now my favorite variety, the Birthday Cake Remix is my favorite thing to order at Cold Stone, and I am going through a phase where I am obsessed with rainbow bagels smeared with birthday cake cream cheese (I’ve been on the quest to find the perfect one – The Bagel Store in Brooklyn is terrific, and so is the Bellmore Bagel Cafe on Long Island). It’s safe to say I like all things birthday cake.
Since I typically try to limit my carb and sugar intake, I’ve been experimenting with recipes that would allow me to indulge in my birthday cake cravings – without destroying my diet. I have come up with the perfect solution.
After a nearly 8 month hiatus from food blogging, I have returned. Me leaving ya’ll stranded wasn’t planned – this year has been really rough so far. The school year was super hectic, my family mourned two losses, my house is under construction, and I’ve had some health issues. With all that being said, everyone and everything is OK and life is slowly starting to fall back into place. HOWEVER, this isn’t a pity party – it’s a goddamn food blog. And that’s what I’m here to do – talk about food I make, food I eat, and food I want to eat.
