Birthday Cake flavored Lofthouse Cookies

Hiya! I'm so excited about these cookies, they turned out exactly how I wanted them to. They really do taste just like Birthday cake! I'm a fan of all things Birthday cake flavored, and if you are too then you will want to make these ASAP! These would be perfect to give as a gift to someone on their B-day, much easier than making a whole cake! I hope you enjoy! :)

1/3 Cup Sour Cream
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/4 Cup (4 Tablespoons) Butter, softened
1 Egg
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
3/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
3/4 Cup Vanilla (white) Dry Cake Mix
1/2 Cup Rainbow Sprinkles, plus more for decoration

1 1/2 Cups Confectioner's Sugar
1/4 Cup (4 Tablespoons) Butter, softened
1/4 Cup Shortening
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/3 Cup Vanilla (white) Dry Cake Mix

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine sour cream, sugar, butter, egg and vanilla; mix well.

In a smaller bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and cake mix. Gradually add to wet mixture, mixing well after each addition until everything is evenly incorporated. Mix in sprinkles. 

Generously fill a 1-inch cookie scoop and scoop it into your hands and roll the dough into a ball and place on a cookie sheet and being gentle, lightly flatten it with your hand. Repeat until your cookie sheet is full and bake for 9-11 minutes or until the cookies are set. (to check for this I carefully and gently press down in the middle of one of the cookies to see if it is firm or not, if it is, they are done. These cookies will stay blonde when they are done so make sure you don't over cook them) Cool completely before frosting.

For the frosting, beat together the butter, shortening and vanilla. In another bowl, sift together the confectioners sugar and cake mix, then add to the butter mixture and mix well. Frost onto cookies once they are completely cool, and sprinkle with sprinkles as soon as you frost so they will stick. Store in a air-tight container for up to 5 days.

Makes 20 cookies.
