Funfetti Cake Waffles

12 years ago today my life drastically changed. There was a baby. And he was mine. And I had to, like, take care of him and stuff.

It was crazy, man. It still is crazy, if we’re being honest.

12 years of being a mama. It’s an amazing thing.

12 years with the absolute sweetest little boy I’ve ever met. I’m always telling people what a great kid he is, but I don’t think they fully get it. Really, you guys, GREATEST KID EVER.

I love him to pieces, is what I’m trying to say.

So, to make his birthday extra special, I served him up some Funfetti Cake Waffles for breakfast. With a big blob of ice cream and a healthy drizzle of chocolate syrup, natch.

His day is off to a pretty good start.

Happy Birthday, Elijah. Love you always, no matter what.

Funfetti Cake Waffles

Cake mix waffles are a fun twist on dessert, but serving them for a birthday breakfast makes the day that much more special!


1 box Funfetti Cake Mix
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil
3 eggs


Mix together the cake mix, water, oil, and eggs in a large bowl until well combined.
Drop 2 1/2 ice cream scoops of the cake batter into a preheated Belgian waffle iron and cook for three minutes. Use less cake batter if you're using a smaller waffle iron.
Serve with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
