Birthday Cake Bubble Tea

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Bubblehead17

If you really like bakery flavors this is the flavor for you. It tastes almost like the Birthday cake icecream at Cold Stone creamery. Note : Large Tapioca can be purchased at Asian grocery stores. Bubble tea straws can be purchased inexpensively here,

MMM, I love everything cake mix flavor, and I can't believe I have found a drink tasting like it!!! Thank you very much for this recipe. I did not use the sugar syrup, I added honey instead because I didnt feel like making it. I think it didn't alter the taste.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup yellow cake batter
  • 14 cup fat-free half-and-half
  • 12 cup tea, base
  • 12 cup milk
  • 2 -4 tablespoons prepared tapioca
  • 1 -2 teaspoon sugar syrup
  • 2 teaspoons candy sprinkles
  • 14 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 drop yellow food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ice


  1. To make cake batter I used a recipe from this site for cake mix frosting (#104747) and a recipe for make your own cake mix (#192436). In the second recipe I omitted adding, leavening and eggs to the cake mix.
  2. Add everything except tapioca and ice to your cocktail shaker, seal tight and shake for 10 seconds.
  3. Place tapioca at the bottom of a tall glass, pour shaken mixture over pearls and serve with bubble tea straw and as much ice as you want.
