Birthday Cake Sandwich Cookies & 1 year on….

Since my Birthday Cake Popcorn recipe went live I have been inundated with so many messages & requests  (13 in fact) for more Birthday Cake flavoured treats & in honour of our website being 1 year old today I thought today was the perfect day to share another Birthday Cake recipe.

Marvellous things have happened to Living Dead Cakes in such a short space of time since our website launch.  The last 12 months have been a totally spectacular rollercoaster ride, so much has changed and we have evolved each month, Im looking forward to so many more fun & exciting things that are to come within the next 12 months!

I would like to thank everyone for their love, support & messages of encouragement over the last year & for putting up with my insane cake ramblings & force feeding those close me all the recipes I have been creating for the website.

People have been asking about how they can support LDC, If you would like too please  have a look at our Support us page for all the ways you can help us and the charities we support. Don’t forget to give our Facebook Page a like too.

This cookie is truly yummy, I may have put my self in a cookie induced coma while taste testing these, I needed a soya milk IV! STAT.

You can make these instead of a birthday cake & put candles in them like I did.

Happy 1st Birthday I can’t wait for the next year!




For the cookies,

For the filling,

  • 60g Vegan Butter
  • 60g Vegetable shorting (Trex)
  • 100g Gluten Free cake mix
  • 200g Icing Sugar
  • 2 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 8 Tsp. Strawberry Jam


Pre-heat your oven to 180c/350f/or Gas mark 4 and line a cookie sheet with non stick parchment paper

Makes 8 cookie sandwiches 

For the cookies, 

  1. In a bowl cream together the butter & sugars until light and fluffy,
  2. Add the soya pudding, cake mix, flour, baking powder, vanilla, & cornflour & mix until well combined, cover bowl with cling film and allow to chill in the fridge for 2 hours, overnight if you can.
  3. Once chilled scoop balls of cookie dough onto a baking sheet and top with a little of the sprinkles, they will spread a little so leave about 2″ between each cookie.
  4. Bake for 13-16 minutes or until golden around the edges
  5. Once baked move to a wire rack and allow to completely cool.cookiedoughbc

For the frosting filling & putting the cookies together 

  1. In a bowl cream together the butter & vegetable shorting until light & fluffy
  2. Add the icing sugar, cake mix, & vanilla and beat well, place in a piping bag. I used a 1M piping tip.
  3. Once your cookies are completely cold pipe a circle around the base of the cookie and fill the centre with 1 Tsp, jam, top with another cookie.
  4. Repeat with all your cookies,insidecookies

Enjoy! These are seriously moorish!

  1. These look amazing, don’t think they would last long in our house! Would you be able to suggest anything I could substitute for the soya pudding though so my son could eat them too please. Thank you

    1. Apple Sauce or mashed banana would work just as well, 100g of either would be enough, And add half a tsp extra of vanilla extract too. xx

  2. Have finally made a batch, they are deeeeeeelicious thank you. It has taught me however to read recipes properly, I made 8 cookies and made 4 sandwiches, not 16 to make 8 cookie sandwiches and they are rather large! My son is not complaining though 🙂
