This is the week I turn into a puddle of mush every year. My Charlie turns 17 on Sunday. I cannot believe how fast the years have gone by. It really doesn’t seem possible that I have been a mother for that long. And I am completely  in denial that in a few short years Charlie probably won’t even be living at home anymore. 

Thankfully, Charlie still likes to spend time with us, and I am planning to soak up as much as I can for as long as he lets me.

And Charlie LOVES to celebrate his birthday.

There will be funfetti pancakes because Charlie loves his sprinkles. For dessert he almost always chooses a skillet cookie over cake, and this year he’s also getting birthday cake whipped cream, because everything is better when it gets a dollop of whipped cream.

But this isn’t any ordinary whipped cream. This whipped cream tastes just like a birthday cake with sprinkles, but it is made without any cake mix. The secret is in the butter and almond extract. Just a little bit added with the cream and sugar gives you the taste of birthday cake without having to add any cake mix at all.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp butter flavor extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract (optional)
  • sprinkles

Directions:

  • combine the cream, sugar, and extract in the bowl of a stand mixer
  • whisk on med-high until you have stiff peaks
  • fold in sprinkles
  • serve immediately

Butter flavor is what gives your whipped cream that “baked” taste, but I love adding a bit of almond flavor as well that is so common in white cake recipes.

Use birthday cake whipped cream on your pancakes, top your fruit, spread it on cake, or just eat it on a spoon. There’s really no wrong way to enjoy birthday cake whipped cream.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be in denial that my baby’s growing up while eating my birthday cake whipped cream.

enjoy!
