My daughter has this obsession with whipped cream frosting nowadays, so when it came time for her to pick her birthday cake (back in February), it was a top priority for her to find the perfect recipe. We stumbled upon this cake which has both cake elements and cheesecake elements...which was also something she was having trouble picking between. Best of both worlds seemed like the right choice. And this cake having whipped cream frosting was like...well....icing on the cake!

As complicated as it may seem, it's actually not too much more work than just making a cheesecake. The sprinkles add so much spunk to the already gorgeous cake. We were able to use some of the special sprinkles Cami had received in an Owlcrate Jr subscription box (it's a middle grade book box!), which is why you see the big pearls and hearts on top. The frosting was everything she wanted and she ended up being so happy with this cake. In turn, this made me super happy because I just want the kids to have the perfect birthdays! :)

  6. Then add remaining dry ingredient and mix until combined and smooth.
  7. Fold in sprinkles.
  8. Pour into a 9-inch springform pan that has been lined with parchment paper and sprayed with nonstick spray up the sides.
  9. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean. Set aside to cool.
