One of my favorite parts of my little Emma’s 4th birthday PB&J Party was the cake.  It turned out perfect (which is totally saying something because I made it myself).  Not only did it perfectly fit the style of the party, but it was SERIOUSLY easy to make!  Seriously!  Today I’m sharing the tutorial…



  • White Cake Recipe (or a box of White Cake Mix)
  • Cream Cheese Frosting- 2 cans
  • Peanut Butter 5-8 Tablespoons
  • Strawberry Jam 5-8 Tablespoons
  • Red Food Coloring (optional)

Step #1:

Bake 4 round cakes using a Non-Stick 9 Inch Round Cake Pan.  Flip the pan upside down onto wax paper and place in the freezer until ready to frost and serve.


Step #2:

Mix one can of cream cheese frosting with 5-8 Tbsp of Peanut butter until it is the consistency and taste desired.  Mix the second can of cream cheese frosting with 5-8 Tbsp of Strawberry Jam until it is the consistency and taste desired.  A little bit of red food coloring can be added to the strawberry frosting to create the correct color of pink.  I recommend only 1-2 drops.

Step #3

Place one of the round cakes onto the cake plate and frost the top with the peanut butter frosting.  Make sure to get the frosting close to the edge of the cake.  It does not need to be smooth or even…in fact, messier makes it look more authentic.  Add another layer of cake and frost with the strawberry frosting.  Repeat with a third cake and peanut butter frosting.  Add a final cake to the top .


I told you it was easy peasy!  Check out the full PB&J party for more party ideas!!
