Waffle Birthday Cake

Waffle Birthday Cake

Happy Birthday to me!

For the last two weeks, I’ve had friends and family ask, “What are you going to do for your birthday this year?” And on and on I went about this genius birthday cake that I was going to bake. But this was no ordinary, grocery-store-bought-lookalike cake. It was going to be a magical WAFFLE cake. And my friends were on board for having a waffle-cake-making birthday party at my house.

I have THE coolest friends in the world.Waffle Birthday Cake Party

Do you feel wiser? Do you feel older? 

Look at this thing. Does it look like I feel wiser OR older?

Older, wiser, and a belly full of waffles.
Ready to stuff my face with this thing!

Waffle Birthday Cake

Makes: ~20 waffles, easily feeds 10 people
Time to prepare: Depending on how drunk you get on your birthday, anywhere from 30 minutes to never-quite-finished


  • 1 box of waffle mix
  • Vegetable oil
  • Eggs
  • Toppings: Peanut butter, Nutella, Biscoff cookie butter, chocolate sauce, sprinkles, maple syrup, whip cream (chocolate and vanilla), ice cream, fresh cut strawberries
  • Additional: Candles, placed in a delicate fashion per waffle


  1. Have a birthday shot. Then have another.
  2. In a bowl, whisk vegetable oil and eggs. Add liquid mixture to a separate bowl containing the waffle mix, and whisk until everything is mashed together.
  3. Turn on waffle iron and grease with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Good job. Another birthday shot for you!
  5. In 1/4 cup scoops, make waffles, cooking for 2-3 minutes per waffle.
  6. With your friends, find the optimum stacking position. After experimenting, we determined that forming a solid base of three waffles and stacking in a pyramid fashion worked best.
  7. Top with sauce/syrup/sprinkles/whip cream/any and all good toppings.
  8. Have another shot.
  9. By this point you’re drunk, so have someone else set the candles up and light them.
  10. Sing Happy Birthday to yourself alongside your friends’ singing because, duh, you’re drunk.
  11. EAT!
