Birthday Cake Egg Rolls

Today marks the first day of the last year in my 20’s.

I don’t really know how to feel about it yet, but I do know that I am going to celebrate my final year of being 20-something like a rock star.

And all the rock stars I know definitely celebrate their 29th birthday with Birthday Cake Egg Rolls.

Birthday Cake Egg Rolls

Ok… so I might not really know any rock stars personally, and I may have just invented these Birthday Cake Egg Rolls…

But I’m certain that these Birthday Cake Egg Rolls will become more trendy than kale or quinoa.

At least in this house.

Egg Roll Cakes

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

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 sprinkled in with cinnamon and sugar. It tastes like a delicious cake batter doughnut wrapped in a crispy churro like shell.

Oh yes, I just did that.

We’re ordering Chinese Food for my birthday dinner tonight, and what better way to have my cake than wrapped up in an egg roll?

It’s the best way, if you ask me.

Birthday Cake Egg Rolls

So if you’re looking for a fun, new, “rock star” way to eat a birthday cake then you’ll definitely want to try these Birthday Cake Egg Rolls. It’s what all the cool 29 year olds are doing these days.

Birthday Cake Egg Rolls
Serves: 24 Egg Rolls
  • 1 Fun-Fetti Cake Mix & necessary ingredients to prepare (egg whites, oil, and water)
  • 24 Egg Roll Wrappers
  • Oil for frying
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • Chocolate Sauce (optional)
  1. 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.
  2. Heat 3 inches of oil to 375 degrees F.
  3. Place a rectangle of cake in the center of the egg roll wrapper. Dab your finger with a little water 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.
  4. Fry in the hot oil for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.
  5. 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.
  6. Drizzle with chocolate sauce, and serve with ice cream (optional). Enjoy!
Notes from Shawn:
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.


  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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! :-)

    • 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

  4. 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!

  5. You should party like a rock star! These eggrolls are a great way to start

  15. 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

  16. 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!!

    • 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!! :)

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

    These are just fantastic, such a great idea!

  20. I love this idea, looks amazing! Hope you had a great birthday!

  21. 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!

  22. I am making this recipe now!!!!!! Thanks for the idea, hope my BF likes them, I am sure he will. Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. 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.
