Make their birthday special with these fun pancakes!


  • 1 yellow cake mix, plus ingredients to make a cake
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles plus some for sprinkling on the icing
  • 1 tub store bought vanilla frosting
  • birthday candles


  1. Mix the cake mix according the package instructions.
  2. Ladle on full ladle or 1/2 cup batter onto a pre heated griddle ( I had mine at 300 degrees).
  3. Cook until bubbles appear.
  4. NOTE: Be patient, these are a lot more tender then a pancake made with pancake batter.
  5. Wait until the pancake is almost cooked through before turning.
  6. Once you have turned the pancake over lightly press with your finger in the center and if the pancake springs back it is done.
  7. For cake effect pile the pancakes onto a cake place.
  8. Spoon the icing into a microwave safe bowl and cook 15 seconds.
  9. Stir, drizzle over pancake pile, add sprinkles and candles.
