Ultimate Birthday Cake

cake1

Remember that decadent dessert we promised? Well, here it is! We don’t really make big layer cakes all that frequently because when we do, we like to go all out. A few weeks ago, I ordered The Sweetapolita Bakebook, and the first time I flipped through the book, I almost passed over this cake. Based on the outside, I assumed it was simply a vanilla cake with sprinkle-filled vanilla icing; pretty, but nothing too special. However, having followed the Sweetapolita blog for a few years now, I should’ve known better. What really makes this cake fabulous is the filling. A portion of frosting is mixed with eggless sugar cookie dough cubes and sprinkles, and then crumbled colorful cupcakes are sprinkled between the layers.

Man, is that filling fantastic. It’s such a fun surprise, and the sugar cookie dough bites are definitely the best ones! We’re definitely going to try the eggless cookie dough method for other cakes (chocolate chip cookie dough, anyone?).

It’s also so fun to have the sprinkles stirred into the frosting. While it made it a little bit harder to frost the cake neatly, it was a really cool effect that I will definitely be using on other cakes in the future.

We followed the recipe from the book exactly, and since it’s a brand-new book we have chosen against posting it here. You can find the recipe in the book, or find a 3-layer version of the recipe on Sweetapolita’s blog. It was one of our brother’s favorite cakes of all time, and I’m sure we will make it again for a special occasion.
