Birthday Cake Egg Rolls are a fun and out-of-this-world way to celebrate your birthday!
Birthday Cake Egg Rolls are like a giant cinnamon and sugar coated churro stuffed with a fluffy, funfetti cake inside. Dip them in the cream cheese icing or top with vanilla ice cream for the ultimate treat!
I originally made these egg rolls back on April 5, 2013 for my birthday. I figured it was time to give them some fresh new photos and a fun video too.
I’m seriously obsessed with these egg rolls you guys. They’re completely epic in every sense of the word.
The truth is, these Birthday Cake Egg Rolls are freaking amazing.
I took a fun-fetti cake, wrapped it up in an egg roll wrapper, then fried it till golden brown. Once it was done I rolled them in cinnamon and sugar. It tastes like a delicious cake batter doughnut wrapped in a crispy churro-like shell.
Don’t forget to make the buttery cream cheese frosting for dipping.
After all, what’s a birthday cake without the frosting?!
The outside egg roll wrapper becomes crisp, while the inside stays soft and tender, like a good cake should!
I mean, even if you’re not celebrating a birthday, these egg rolls should definitely find a place in your heart. They just bring a smile to my face every time I see them (and especially when I taste them).
I feel like my work here is done.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got another birthday party to start planning!

Birthday Cake Egg Rolls
Cream Cheese Frosting:
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp heavy cream
- 1 1/2 to 2 cups powdered sugar
- Prepare cake according to box directions in 2 8x8 square pans. Let cool to room temperature, then cut the cake in half, then cut the two halves into 1 inch slices to make little rectangles.
- Heat 3 inches of oil to 375 degrees F.
- Place a rectangle of cake in the center of the egg roll wrapper. Dab your finger in the egg and run it along the edges of the egg roll wrapper. Fold the bottom corner of the wrapper up and over the cake, then fold in the right and left sides. Roll the egg roll away from you to seal it up. Repeat with the remaining cake rectangles.
- Fry in the hot oil for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.
- Remove the egg roll from the oil and place on a paper towel lined plate. While still hot, roll it in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Cream Cheese Frosting:
- Beat the butter and cream cheese together in a medium size bowl until combined and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and heavy cream and beat until smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar and blend until light and fluffy. Add more sugar if desired for extra sweetness.
- Drizzle the egg rolls with chocolate sauce and sprinkles if desired, or serve by dipping in the frosting. Enjoy!

The way this operates is the pink is the base portion of your
nail. Money is taught with the help of cards depicting geometric sweets; each individual sweet represents 1 unit, boxes of sweets stand for
tens and jars of sweets represent hundreds. All in all, I liked the glitter, and the stars and rhinestones.
I am making this recipe now!!!!!! Thanks for the idea, hope my BF likes them, I am sure he will. Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shawn, you. are. a. GENIUS! I am totally snatching this idea for one of those splurgey days when I just feel like birthday cake needs to be deep-fried (which is, uh, every day haha). Hope you had a happy and delicious birthday!
Rosie @ Blueberry Kitchen
I love this idea, looks amazing! Hope you had a great birthday!
I have never had kale or quinoa, but I might eat this more than the two of those combined. This looks great!

Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love.
Happy Birthday, lady! I am only about 5 months away from 30.
These are just fantastic, such a great idea!
Oh, my, yumminess, these look amazing!!! I don’t usually cook with pre-made mixes, so I wonder if this would turn out as well with a homemade fun-fettii-type batter? I am going to pin this and see if I can come up with anything. Looks fantastic!!
Thanks! Any cake mix would work inside the egg roll, I just did a fun fetti mix because I love sprinkles, so go ahead and mix it up! A chocolate cake inside would be amazing!! 🙂

Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie
You should party like a rock star! These eggrolls are a great way to start
Thanks Erin!! 🙂
Very inventive! Looks so fun! I remember the year I turned 29, my Dad jokes with me that no one would ever believe me about my age, “Oh yeah, you’re 29 (wink wink), uh-huh!”. No, really! 🙂 Happy birthday, Shawn!
I should probably just tell people I’m 23 and not worry about it! Hehe. Thanks Amie!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! These look so darn good! How I am 2 years older than you….?? And you have four babies…..I’d say you look pretty frickin-fantastic, mama! 30 is not bad at all; quite liberating actually.
Hope your day is wonderful! 🙂
Ha! Thanks Dana! I guess I just started young and didn’t stop having babies. It’s good to hear that turning 30 isn’t too bad. I’m thinking that 30 will be a the new 20’s. But good thing I don’t have to worry about it till next year. Lol
Wendy @ AMFT
Happy Birthday! So wish you were still here so we could celebrate…instead, I will be licking my screen all day in hopes of a taste of these amazing treats! YUM!
Haha! Thanks my dear friend!! I miss you lots! 🙂
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Mine (also turning 29, so pretty much we are the same) is the 16th and I can’t believe I’m almost 30. IT’S CRAZY!! You’re the best! Wish I could take you to lunch to celebrate!
Ah thanks Carrian! Lunch with you would be awesome, hope you have a fantastic birthday as well! 🙂
