With Sprinkles On Top….


Now you are probably looking at this cake and thinking aww how sweet Peabody made a cake for a 6 year old girl. Nope. That cake is for a 40 year old man. :P I know it seems silly for a grown man to be getting a pink cake with sprinkles for his birthday but MDP is pretty confident in his sexuality (as am I ;) ) so he can handle it.

When I was trying to figure out what to make MDP for a birthday cake (he is not a big fan of chocolate) I asked for suggestions on FB (are you following me on FB? If not, would you?) and boy did I get a lot suggestions (yay!). Other than making me hungry for cake, someone put a link to a Strawberry Milk Cheesecake that Sprinkle Bakes made. I had it pinned already but forgot about it as I often do. I knew immediately that would be the cake. After all it’s way too festive and MDP LOVES Strawberry Milk (heck I just made him bark).

Problem is that Heather (Sprinkle Bakes) excels at decorating and Peabody excels at knowing people who are good at decorating. And so I feared my cake would not look like hers. And while hers is still way prettier than mine I think I did a darn good job of coming close to it! Yay!!!

I changed this recipe a little as there were no graham crackers in the house and so vanilla wafers got use. I love those stupid cookies so they were a good choice. I also added a little more strawberry milk powder as well as the addition of malted milk. And my topping I added custard powder and more malted milk. A lot of bakeries add vanilla pudding mix or powdered custard to their whipped cream frosting FYI so that it is more stable and keeps it shape. The bakery I worked for used custard powder and so I just always have for some reason.


So happy 40th birthday to my best friend, fiancé, and defensive partner. Here is to a great year ahead. And hey your 40’s aren’t so bad…I mean you get to marry me so ya know…that alone makes your future better. :P Love you honey.

  1. It’s gorgeous.

  2. I LOVE that there are sprinkles in the crust! My brother would totally dig this for his birthday too because he is more of a fruity dessert person (and honestly I am too unless it involves peanut butter)

  3. This is awesome. I like that it is no-bake, and the sprinkles in the crust make it look extra awesome and yummy!

  4. That looks delicious, Wow!! I’d marry you too if you’d bake me a Birthday cake like that, lol…

  5. You did a phenomenal job on this cake!! Happy birthday to your guy! :-)

  6. Your cheesecake looks just as beautiful as Heather’s does :)

    I too saved that recipe and saw it earlier this week and I am determined to make it sometime either this weekend or week. It’s so pretty and pink!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MDP *<]:o)

  7. Too cute!

  8. That is absolutely beautiful!

  9. I’m glad its for your fiancee, because it would be wasted on a six-year-old girl ;)

  10. Ok, I want this for MY birthday. Of course, I’d have to make it myself but I think it would be worth it :-D

  11. I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say you have no idea how truly awesome you are. That cake….well….it’s pure awesomeness. :)

  12. It turned out so cute! Happy Birthday indeed :)

  13. This cake looks fabulous! And I may just make it for my own
    birthday coming up – is it a super rich/dense cake? Do you think
    there’s anyway of lessening the cream cheese?

  14. It’s a cheesecake so you can’t really lessen the cream cheese.

  15. That is soooo pretty. Really, it has to be one the prettiest cakes I’ve seen. You did a great job decorating it!!!!

  16. The cake looks gorgeous.

  17. wow. this looks so amazing!

  18. My birthday is February 1 and I was thinking last Friday that you had a friend with the same birthday. Seems like you have mentioned it in the past. At any rate, I guess your friend is now revealed. Hope he had a nice birthday! The cake looks super yummy!

    This is such a pretty cake. We’re having a function at work Thursday and I would love to see the looks on my co-workers faces if I brought this in.
