Jeremy's Birthday Cake

July 29, 2015

After having morning sicking upon morning sickness during Jeremy's birthday and missing his 30th I decided to step it up this year and give him two weeks of birthday cake. 

Week one was his favorite, and a first time I made it for him, Strawberry Shortcake. 

This week (which he's reminded me multiple times his birthday isn't until next week, but school starts so there's no time for such things) he got the mack daddy of cake flavors in my opinion. 

It's basically what I wanted... and I'm using him as an excuse to make it. 

So, the cake...

It's a yellow cake with Butterfingers. 
The filling is an egg-less Peanut Butter Cookie Dough.
The icing is a Marshmallow Buttercream.
And it's topped with Oreo's. 

This has proven to be THE cake recipe and frosting I will use for every birthday for hence forth. 
You can easily change up your filling or add chocolate to the frosting. There are just so many options with a good base cake like this! 

I initially intended to put the Oreo's in the frosting, but I decided it would make it harder to frost. 

Notice that baby? 

It was pushing nap time when I started snapping pictures. He was DONE with everything I had planned that wasn't turning the lights off, sound machine off, and handing that paci to him. 

But get his attention for a hot second and you could almost pretend he wasn't sleepy. 

This is also the first tiered cake I've made that didn't lean and the easiest to frost I've ever made too! 
I attribute that to the silky frosting, it was super easy to work with. 

Plus it set very well in the fridge and I was able to wrap it in Saran wrap without everything mushing around and looking like Harrison was who iced it. 

Now I know you're wanting to know what the recipes are, 
So here are the links, you can easily pin them from here.

I realized later I forgot the vanilla when I made this but it is still really good! 

I hope you like these as much as we do. I haven't even cut into the cake yet, We sat around eating the scrapes from leveling the cake and leftover icing out of tupperware and were beyond sugared out!
