KETO BIRTHDAY CAKE
Hot damn – a birthday cake ‘sprinkles’ and all!
Ok, so I’ll admit, the first time I made this it was a DISASTER. I took it out of the oven and it completely collapsed.. but with a few tweakings of the oven temperature, this time around it came out GREAT.
For the sprinkles, I decided to use unsweetened coconut flakes and used a food colouring. Now most food colouring is made from caramelized sugar. I used Club House liquid food colouring that doesn’t seem to have any sugar in it. You can skip this step if you don’t feel comfortable.
For the icing, I made a cream cheese white chocolate frosting and boy it is delicious. This also doubles as a two-in-one recipe! I also go over how to make white chocolate!

There are obviously many diet plans in the world. It can be overwhelming to decide.
That’s why I believe that, when you’ve committed to a diet, and it’s time to start menu planning, you want to avoid looking outside of your chosen diet for meal options. Wavering could be detrimental to your weight loss success. It may just bring you back to square one.
You’d be well served, for this very reason, to build up an online library of recipes within your chosen plan. So if you’ve chosen the ketogenic diet as your weight loss method, for example, then you ONLY want those types of recipes in your library… and nothing else.
The importance of this cannot be overstated.
In the past, I’ve definitely hopped from one thing to the next… like crazy. And I’ve done so for one simply reason…
On low-sugar, you crave sugar. On low-calorie, you crave calorie-rich foods. I mean, it’s still officially “diet food,” even if it’s not your diet… right? And counter-arguments can be pretty compelling. And let’s call a spade a spade… Recipe videos can be undeniably will-shattering. 😉
Choose a lifestyle that you’re thrilled to stick with. That’s how long-term results will be achieved. While each diet is completely unique in its approach, many say that healthy food and a slight caloric deficit are really all it take to help you reach your goals.
Seems pretty logical, really. Control the calorie intake, eat clean, and the fat should come right off. Oh, and move that body of yours a little more! 😉
This is conventional weight loss advice. There’s probably good reason for this!
But even if your chosen diet isn’t a low-calorie model, you may still be well-served to stick with it long-term. Many diets have more of a macro-nutrient ratio focus. Failure to adhere to your diet’s particular ratio may compromise your weight loss results.
Keep your eye on the prize! Don’t stray.

What you’ll need:
4 heaping tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes
Liquid food colouring
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup sugar substitute (I used a monk fruit/erythritol blend)
100g melted butter
2 cups almond flour
1 tsp baking powder
8oz cream cheese
4 oz cacao butter
6 1/2 tbsp powered sweetener (I used Swerve Confectioners)
1 tsp vanilla
First things first, lets make the sprinkles because they will need to dry. Separate your coconut flakes evenly into 4 or 5 different bowls.
Add 4 drops of liquid food colouring into a bowl and mix with a toothpick. Continue on with a different colour for each bowl. Set them aside and let them dry out.
Time to make a cake! In a bowl, mix together your almond flour and baking powder. In a separate bowl, stir together your sour cream, vanilla and water. Whisk in your sweetener, butter and whisk in each egg one at a time..
Add in a little almond flour and baking powder mixture to the wet ingredients and whisk in thoroughly before adding more. Continue until the almond flour is gone.
Pour into a cake pan. I used a 7 inch springform pan lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 350 for roughly 30 minutes or until you can put a toothpick into it and it comes out clean (without any crumbles).
Let it cool and put in the second cake if necessary (I only had one pan).
For the icing, heat up your cacao butter on LOW until melted. Add 3 1/2 tbsp of powdered sweetener. Place it on a flat sheet (plate, cookie sheet etc) and let it cool/harden.
In a bowl, beat your cream cheese until fluffy. Add in your hardened chocolate and 3 more tbsp of powdered sweetener and beat until incorporated.
Once your cakes have cooled, place a BIG dollop of icing on the top of one and spread it evenly around. Place the other cake on top,
Scrape the rest of the icing onto the cake and spread around until covered. Use the rest of the sprinkles for decoration.
Enjoy! This makes roughly 10 slices.
