i made some last year and loved it.
this year i knew i was going to make it again, especially since my love for birthday cake flavoring has only increased since making ashley’s cake batter cashew butter…
and trying three olives birthday cake vodka.
birthday cake flavored anything is a winner in my book!
so, while i remember jessica’s cake batter bark being awesome, i remember thinking it wasn’t very cake-y and was pretty white chocolate-y instead.
so i bumped it up a notch.
i followed her recipe, but i added 1/2 tsp almond extract to 8 oz of dark chocolate on the bottom layer.
then, i added another 1/2 tsp almond extract and an extra two tbsp of funfetti cake mix to the 12 oz white chocolate for the top layer.
it’s still delicious. but it takes it up a notch. this bark really tastes like birthday cake!
it’s the almond extract that does it.
and trust me – it’s a good thing.
i might have to make an extra batch of this stuff. it’s a crowd pleaser!
is today anyone else’s friday?! i am so pumped for this weekend!! today is going to be busy finishing things up at work and packing to go home. i just hope i can concentrate on the things i need to do – i’m too excited!!!
and a very very happy birthday to the lovely katie! her birthday is exactly a month before mine and we had a joint birthday party back in middle school. it was one of the first boy-and-girl parties. my dad came in while we were sitting on the couch with a boy and he had his arm around my shoulders. my dad asked him, “so you like to hug?” and then he picked him up in a giant bear hug. i was embarrassed and one of my guy friends who was at the party still teases me about that to this day!
do you like birthday cake flavored things?
what’s your favorite kind of holiday bark?
i am partial to this birthday cake bark, but classic peppermint will always have a place in my heart too!
