1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars

It’s Katarina’s birthday on April 15th and she decided that her birthday cake this year would be the Momofuku Milk Bar Birthday Cake. The issue is, we live in Hamilton, and can’t get to NYC to pick it up, nor can we actually eat the original Milk Bar cake? So we brought Momofuku to our test kitchen, and now, you can make this deliciously classic gluten free and vegan vanillia funfetti cake right at home, exactly how the boss ladies at Momofuku do!

Our new website is also LIVE! Check it out and stock up on your favourite premium baking mixes, on a birthday sale from now until April 17th, 2018 (link below!) You can find the full written version of this recipe now on our blog!

  1. Okay, so what’s your favourite birthday cake? I truly like chocolate cake over vanilla hahah!

  2. I love your recipes. Would it be possible to include the ingredients for people who don’t have access to your products. I understand you want to advertise them and they look amazing, but it would be great to have a list of ingredients that are in them and a method. Thanks xx

    1. Liss girl I feel you. Shipping is sooooo expensive, it’s an issue we are trying to remedy. I honestly don’t get how they can charge that much to slap a small box of goodies down on a plane that they don’t even have to think twice about. I know our stuff doesn’t have US duty. I’d have to look into it for the UK. Our goal is to affordable get it there somehow soon!

    2. Dolled Up Desserts hi. Thank you for replying. I’m in the UK and although many US sites post to the UK, by the time you’ve paid international postage and import duty, it’s just too expensive, it’s the same with Makeup. There’s so many US cosmetic companies that I want to order from. 😁💕👍🏻

    3. Liss thanks so much! The ingredients are in the description box and will be on our site soon…. for the baking mix if you can’t get exactly that any of your vanilla cake recipes you like can work too!
