On Monday, I woke up in a bad mood. We are experiencing a little heat wave down here in Southern California, and the thought of baking in a small house with no air conditioning literally made me want to die.
I knew the entire week would be one massive sweat session - and I was not looking forward to it. I was basically stomping my feet and pouting around the house like a small child all morning. But then, something happened.
Somehow, someone got a hold of my T-Swift inspired cakes, and published them on on glamour.com. Suddenly, my frustrations about my exsessive sweating in the kitchen were gone. It was going to be a good week after all.
And now, I get to share these Birthday Cake Cookies with you. I have probably said this before, but this time is for real. These are my favorite cookies EVER. Inspired by the talented baker Lauren Lowstan of A Sweet Savory, these soft sugar cookies are amazing, but when you add the Birthday Cake Crumble...game over.
So even if it's no one's birthday - I highly suggest you get to the kitchen asap to make these. Even if it is hot and miserable outside - they are worth the struggle. I promise.

for the cookies:
*Makes about 20 cookies.
*Makes about 24 cookies
They are SO good!!
is there any way that MORE all purpose flour can be used instead of the cake flour? i don't have any cake flour and i'm kind of stuck at the house today. thanks!!
You can substitute all purpose flour for cake flour. To make "cake flour" combine 2 3/4 cups all purpose flour and 1/2 cup cornstarch. Whisk them together until fully combined.
These look absolutely amazing! I'm trying them ASAP! Just wondered, why the imitation vanilla?
I always use imitation vanilla for birthday cake flavored things - it's a little sweeter than regular vanilla extract.
Hey those look familiar ????????????????
Inspired by the best!
