Has anyone heard of this before? I've heard of the birthday cake flavored ice cream but never a cake. I have a request to do a GF birthday cake flavored cake..I've searched everywhere but nothing. She said if it's not something I can do, vanilla would be fine. So if you guys aren't familiar with it either, vanilla it is! Thanks in advance everyone!
Only thing I can figure is a WASC cake??? My my grandmothers old cook books, it calls the White Almond cake "The Birthday Cake"...unless there is something else out there I have never head of LOL!
That's all I can think of too...but vanilla is surely easy enough to do, especially Gluten Free so that'll have to do. It's a small order but I'm sure she'll be happy with it! Thanks!
This says it is white cake flavored icing, so I'm thinking a white or vanilla cake would be fine. Maybe the sprinkles kind of cake would make it more fun and festive?
It's a Starbucks thing... "Birthday Cake" flavor is what they're calling their vanilla cake pops.
Even Starbucks says vanilla cake.
Thank you all so much for your help! Vanilla it is! You all are the best! XOXO
I had something similar happen to me once, the groom asked for "wedding cake flavored cake" I thought he was just being sassy because he didn't care what the flavor was. It turns out, he was serious.
I made them vanilla cake because the bride and I could not figure out what he meant and couldn't get much more of a description from him.
Later I found out that "wedding cake flavor" is likely creme bouquet http://www.globalsugarart.com/product.php?id=21621&name=Creme%20Bouquet%20Flavor%208%20ounce%20by%20Magic%20Line
From what I can tell you add it to your vanilla cake. I never tried it, perhaps this or some other similar extract is what she means?
LOL it's not just Starbucks! Cold Stone Creamery has what they call a Birthday Cake Remix which is cake batter ice cream mixed with brownies, fudge, and sprinkles. It's been around forever. I also went into a gourmet store over the weekend and they had cake batter fudge.
The girl at Cold Stone told me they put a whole bag of cake mix into the ice cream. The people at the gourmet store told me they also use cake mix in their fudge.
I would do a confetti cake if I were you.
I saw cake batter flavoring at my local cake store today.
Thanks again everyone! This all helps so much! It will be vanilla with confetti! I didn't realize that 'occasions' had cake flavors! Learn something new every day!
AMy daughter just asked me to make her a birthday cake flavor cake for her birthday. She said the cake with confetti in it. So I will be making her a vanilla with sprinkles in it with marshmallow buttercream icing next week.
Around here, "birthday cake flavor" means chocolate for my mom, a naked pound cake for my dad (even before he became mildly type-2 diabetic, he was never big on frosting), and could mean either spice, or strawberry marble, or any form of straight-vanilla for me.
It is always chocolate for me, sometimes black raspberry or crème de menthe, or mocha, or something else, but always chocolate cake!
But, I confess I have finally jumped on the bandwagon, and have a "birthday cake flavor". It is just a plain vanilla. It is sometimes a mix of left over white, and leftover yellow batters, too, lol. I do French vanilla, that has a rich vanilla flavor, and vanilla bean specks in it. It is heavier, also.
I think generally, when you see "birthday cake flavor," it's the fake vanillin and other artificial flavors in a cake mix which gives yellow cake its "yellow taste."
