Best Birthday Cake Cocktails for a Boozy Birthday Celebration

Everybody loves birthday cake, and there's nothing more festive than making a wish and blowing out candles on a delicious cake to mark another year in your life. But instead of enjoying your birthday dessert in actual cake form, you've got to try these delicious birthday cake-inspired cocktails. 

Now with cake-flavored vodka, whipped cream-flavored vodka and chocolate liqueur, creating your own birthday cake cocktail is easier than ever. Check out some of our favorite boozy birthday recipes to celebrate another year of your life.

Ice cream + booze. What could be better? This boozy milkshake is the perfect dessert with a kick for your birthday celebration. Get the recipe from Keep it Simple Foods.


Cake Batter Martini

Make a cake batter cocktail with actual cake batter, like our recipe for a Cake Batter Martini. Rim the martini glass with sprinkles for the perfect birthday treat. 


Birthday Cake Batter Shots

If you don't want your cake batter cocktail in martini form, try it in shooter form with these delicious Cake Batter Shots from Sweetapolita. Top with colorful and metallic sprinkles for a treat that's as pretty as it is tasty.


White Chocolate Cake Shots

If you love white chocolate cake, then these Birthday Cake Shots from Miss Buttercup are perfect. They're made with white chocolate liqueur, cake vodka and a splash of half-and-half. 


Birthday Cake Jell-O Shots

Jell-O shots aren't just for college anymore. These boozy birthday Jell-O shots from A Beautiful Mess got a birthday makeover with iced cake vodka. If you can find circle molds and some whipped cream, you have the perfect little birthday cake shots. 


Red Velvet Martini

If red velvet is your birthday cake of choice, then you have to try this Red Velvet Martini from One Martini. This recipe comes complete with homemade cream cheese frosting.
