NYC Copycat Birthday Cake Cream Cheese

Birthday Cake Cream Cheese – A quick & easy cream cheese that tastes like birthday cake.


Birthday cream cheese has taken New York by storm. I am seeing it everywhere. Loaded up with a thick schmear on huge bagels.

This cream cheese pairs with just about any bagel flavor: plain bagels, chocolate chip, cinnamon crunch, blueberry, french toast, anything!

It would even be amazing to dip my caramel apple soft pretzels in!

Outside of bagels, you could also put this on toast, English muffins, waffles, or pancakes!
