A peanut butter lover’s dream cake, made with peanut butter cake layers, peanut butter marshmallow filling and peanut butter frosting.
Every year I get asked if I’m going to make my own birthday cake and every year the answer is the same, ABSOLUTELY! I love making my own birthday cake, and every each year I like to do something a little different. From Sweetapolita’s Campfire Delight Cake, to Milk Bar’s Birthday Cake, to my own chocolate cake with chocolate frosting or raspberry coconut cake, I try not to discriminate flavors.
For my 33rd birthday, I decided (months ago) that wanted a peanut butter cake, with peanut butter running through every element of the cake. Yes, I love peanut butter that much. Seriously, I never get sick of it and could put it with just about any food!
After trying some peanut butter sandwich cookies during the holidays last year, I had fallen in love with a peanut butter marshmallow filling and knew immediately that it would be the perfect filling in one of my cakes. The filling is rich, creamy and full of flavor. I particularly love the dash of cinnamon in it! Knowing the filling would be a little on the heavier side, it was a no brainer for me to pair it with the Whipped Peanut Butter Frosting from Annie’s Eats. I love how this frosting has whipped cream folded into it, creating a light, airy texture (who knew that was even possible with peanut butter!). And for the cake, I used Tessa Huff’s peanut butter cake from her Peanut Butter and Jelly Cake. It is full of peanut butter flavor, and thanks to cake flour and milk, is soft and moist!
If you love or even just like peanut butter, I think this cake is going to knock your socks off! Let me know what you think!
