Recipe: Birthday Cake Cream Cheese

Remember my freshman year roommate Alexa and her reference to her family's food Instagram New_Fork_City? Well that account has grown into a mini NYC empire. Whenever I'm in New York, I always try to sample as many amazing foods as possible from the account and it has never failed me. In honor of my 20th birthday next week, *ahem* I thought I'd share a recipe for one of my favorite things I have tried at Tompkins Square Bagel- the infamous birthday cake cream cheese and a recipe for how to make it from Homemaking Hacks if you can't get to the Big Apple. Enjoy!

Tompkins Square Bagel Birthday Cake Cream Cheese 
  • 3/4 Cup Whipped Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 Cup Creamy Vanilla Frosting
  • 2 Tbsp. Confetti Cake Mix Dry
  • 2 Tbsp. Reserved Frosting / 2 drops of blue food coloring
  • 1 Tbsp. of colored sprinkles (optional, but fun!)

  • Combine cream cheese, 1/4 cup of vanilla frosting and 2 Tbsp of cake mix until fully blended and smooth. Optionally, add 1 tablespoon of colored sprinkles to this and gently fold in. In a separate bowl mix the reserved frosting and blue food coloring until blended. Then take the blue frosting and very gently swirl it into the cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Best served on the day of making as the cake mix can make the mixture thick after a while. Enjoy!
Happy (Salem) Sunday! Any other food accounts worth following? I would love to know! {Image}
