For Zeda’s family party, I did a Sprinkle themed birthday. She loved it because the amount of sweets that were provided and I loved it because of the plethora of options I had with sprinkles. One of my favorite recipes of the day was this lovely cake batter & sprinkles no bake cheesecake I found on I’m Topsy Turvy (you can do this recipe without the sprinkles).
People loved it!
Cake Batter & Sprinkles No Bake Cheesecake
3/4 C Nilla wafers, crushed
1/4 C Ginger snaps, crushed
4 oz. butter, melted
Stir together nilla wafers and ginger snaps and melted butter in a bowl until well combined. Pour a few tablespoons into the bottom of your containers (I used Small Mason Jars) to make the crust. (You do not need to bake this.)
1 (8 oz.) block cream cheese, softened
4 Tbsp. butter, softened
3/4 C cake mix
1/4 C milk
1 (8 oz.) tub frozen whipped cream topping, thawed
Beat the cream cheese and butter together in your mixer, with your whisks or cookie paddles, on medium speed until smooth and well blended. Add in dry cake mix and milk and continue mixing until well blended.
Then gently fold in the whipped cream topping with a spatula. I keep the filling in a gallon sized bag, and pipped it on top of the “crust” just before serving! Sprinkle on the Sprinkles!
