Without a fraction of a doubt, this website has changed my life.

Because of this site, I’ve made countless new friends, tried lots of new recipes, taken several trips, got a new job and actually made money — all because of one little new year’s resolution.

Not to mention all the food and travel! I’ve shared 628 posts over the last four years (not including this one), which is pretty insane. I’m so proud and happy.

Every year, I try to share a birthday-ish recipe to celebrate. Even though it’s January and everyone is all about the smoothies and salads, I think it’s still fun to enjoy some cake and a cocktail.

Last year I made Confetti Cake Push Pops and Chocolate Birthday Cake Popcorn — the latter of which Chris begs me to make all the time.

This year I’m bringing you the Birthday Cake White Russian. It’s definitely pushing the classic definition of a White Russian, which is vodka, coffee liqueur and cream, but it tastes like cake batter.

For this recipe, I switched out some of the coffee liqueur for hazelnut liqueur and white chocolate liqueur, and even stirred in a bit of yellow cake mix.

I added some vanilla extract too, but you could totally use vanilla vodka instead.

Oh, and the sprinkled rim! How could I forget? I’m such a sprinkle fiend, so this was my favorite part.

I put some honey on a plate and coated the outer rim of the glass in the honey. I held the glass upside down, letting any extra honey drip off, then I rolled the edge of the glass it in a bowl of hundreds and thousands.

The birthday candle stirrer is just a fat birthday candle stuck inside a smoothie straw — a super easy DIY for any birthday gal or guy!
