DIY Tie Dye Birthday Dip

If you have been following along for a while or even just recently, you probably know that my favorite “holiday” each year is my birthday! And although my birthday has already passed this year, nearly everyone else in my family has a birthday in August, so I figured let’s keep this birthday party going! To me nothing screams “birthday” like cake does! So, of course I pulled out my favorite cake dip recipe for this weeks post!

I love to use cake mix in some unconventional ways, you know like other than actually baking a cake with it. (Here is this recent example) And when I finally tried this recipe I instantly fell in love! To me it is the perfect birthday treat! Cake is such a heavy dessert, so this dip is such a great substitute for those who would prefer to snack or can’t eat a whole piece of cake at a time.

I’m sure at some point you have seen those “Copycat Dunkaroo Dip” recipes. This cake dip is actually my interpretation of those recipes! I have tried sooo many different versions of those dips and through experimenting, this recipe is my favorite combo of taste and texture! I hope you love it as much as I do! Read below to find out how to make your own!

Tie Dye Birthday Dip

– 1 Box of Vanilla Cake Mix
– 1 Cup Whipped Cream Cheese
– 1 Cup Vanilla Yogurt
– 1 Cup Whipped Cream
– 1 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract

1.) Combine all ingredients (cake mix, cream cheese, yogurt, whipped cream and vanilla) in a bowl. Mix thoroughly until all ingredients are incorporated. Once everything is mixed together, separate dip into 6 different bowls. Add a different dye to each bowl and mix. I used neon green, neon blue, neon purple, yellow, orange and neon pink dye.
2.) After colors have been mixed in completely, take each color and place into a large bowl all together. If you want to make yours look just like mine, place the colors around side by side in a color wheel.
3.) Level and smooth each color gently together and using a knife or icing spatula spiral the colors together in the middle. Mix the colors together as much as you like! Just be advised if they are mixed together too much, the colors will combine and form a brown color-yuck!
4.) Get you some animal crackers or cookies to dip, and you are good to go!

I call this my Tie Dye dip, but I also like to call it the Lisa Frank dip since the colors are so vibrant and fun! Whatever you decide to call it, it is delicious and is really a game-changer at any party!
