For my birthday every year, we usually make a Funfetti cake and buy a cookie cake.
Yes, I’m 22 and this is my cake.
As much as I love to bake and as much as I try to avoid buying box mixes and store-bought baked goods, it’s really hard to beat a store-bought cookie cake and a box mix Funfetti cake. Which is why I ask for both every year.
Until this year. I saw this cake and decided that it would probably be the cake that beats the box mix Funfetti cake. I mean… look at it.
Plus, I’ve been lucky enough to visit the actual Momofuku Milk Bar when I went to New York and their desserts are amazing. I figured a recipe from them couldn’t go wrong.
I was sooo right. This cake is everything I was expecting. It’s the goodness of a Funfetti box cake with the addition of a milky flavor and delicious crunchy cake crumbles. Ohhhh, I’m drooling now. Make this, you won’t regret the effort and hours it takes to make it. It’ll all be worth it when you take that first bite.

P.s. Mine is square because I didn’t have acetate paper or a cake ring so I made it in a tall, square Tupperware container.
P.p.s. I haven’t found the recipe that beats the store-bought cookie cake, so if you know one that does ppllleeassee tell me.
