Cake Batter Cheesecake

Cake batter is my thing. Anything that looks, smells or tastes like cake batter is something I MUST have.

It all started with a local ice cream shop’s cake batter ice cream. The fact that I can have something that tastes like birthday cake without it being my birthday is life changing!!

Cake batter lover like me? Come in close I’ll tell you a secret. I even own a Cake Batter perfume by Demeter (and yes it does smell just like cake batter!).

If you like cake batter too you’ll love this cheesecake. It has a delicious funfetti crust filled with cake batter cheesecake. And I mean you gotta top it off with birthday cake cookies am I right!?
