Birthday Cake Dip Variation ideas:

  • Cake Mix. Try other types of cake mix instead of funfetti cake mix for a change. White cake mix, lemon and strawberry would all be delicious.

    Chocolate fans might like a chocolate cake mix. It would be a yummy chocolate dip.
  • Sprinkles. Use different color sprinkles for holidays- red and green, orange and black, pastels, patriotic colors etc. I would not use sugar sprinkles in this dip.
  • Cool whip. Add cool whip to the mixture until it is the desired consistency. It will make the dip even more creamy.
  • Vanilla yogurt. You can use this instead of cream cheese for a different flavor. This will also lighten up the dip.
  • Mix-ins. Change the flavor and add a handful of mini chocolate chips, crushed graham crackers, crushed oreo cookies or anything else you like.

Serving Suggestions:

  • animal crackers
  • graham crackers – Just break them into sticks. Try using chocolate graham crackers, cinnamon graham crackers or original.
  • vanilla wafers
  • fruit- strawberries, grapes, apple slices are some of our favorites.
  • Pretzels- The sticks are perfect for dipping but any type will work.
  • Teddy Grahams. We like using plain, cinnamon and chocolate.
  • Sugar Cookie Sticks

Choose one of these ideas or use your favorite dippers in this easy dessert dip. My kids love animal crackers and graham crackers.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to store Funfetti dip?

Put the dip inside an airtight container. Store in the fridge up to 2 days. Keep in mind that leftover dip will have the sprinkles in it so it might run into the dip.

It won’t look as pretty but will still taste fine.

Can you freeze this dip?

Yes, just make sure the dip is in a freezer bag or freezer container with a good lid. It will keep up to a month in the freezer.

Can you make funfetti dip recipe ahead of time?

You can make this dip up to 2 days in advance. However, do not add the sprinkles until you are ready to serve.

The sprinkles will run if you mix them in when you make the dip. It is best to garnish the day of serving.

Also, let the dip sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving. This will give it time to soften and make it easier for dipping.

It will thicken in the fridge. You can add a few tablespoons of milk until it is the desired consistency. Just make sure to add the milk gradually so you don’t pour too much.

Is it ok to eat raw cake mix?

Yes, it is ok to eat the flour. However, if this concerns you, you can heat treat it. Spread the cake batter on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes at 350 degrees.
