I originally made these egg rolls back on April 5, 2013 for my birthday.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.

Egg Roll Cakes
The truth is, these Birthday Cake Egg Rolls are freaking amazing.

Birthday Cake Egg Rolls are definitely the newest way to celebrate your big day!
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.

The creamiest frosting to dip your Birthday Cake Egg Rolls in!

Don’t forget to make the buttery cream cheese frosting for dipping.

After all, what’s a birthday cake without the frosting?!

OMG! These Birthday Cake Egg Rolls are seriously EPIC!!

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).

These Birthday Cake Egg Rolls are so fun! They taste like a giant churro that's been stuffed with birthday cake! OH YES!

I feel like my work here is done.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got another birthday party to start planning!

  • 1 Cake Mix, eggs, oil, and water
  • 24 Egg Roll Wrappers
  • Oil
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • Chocolate Sauce, optional
  • Sprinkles, optional

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!
If you don't want to prepare all the egg rolls at once, you can freeze the left over cake and save it for another day.

    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!

  4. Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love.

    Happy Birthday, lady! I am only about 5 months away from 30.

    These are just fantastic, such a great idea!

  5. Andrea

    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!!

    1. Shawn

      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!! 🙂

    Shawn, What a terrific idea. I would love for you to share at my linky party going on right now at The Mandatory Mooch. Thanks, Nichi

    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!

  8. Dana

    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! 🙂

    1. Shawn

      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

  9. 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!

  10. carrian

    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!
