So it’s your friend’s birthday and you want to get them a gift card to their FAVORITE coffee shop. You’re going to be handing them one for Starbucks, right? Even better – when you’re handing them the gift card, give them a secret menu item called the Cake Batter Frappuccino with it!
What’s in it?
- The base: a vanilla bean Frappuccino
- Hazelnut syrup (1 pump for tall, 1.5 pumps for a Grande sized and 2 pumps for venti.)
Thankfully, your whipped cream doesn’t have to taste normal, either. There are many flavors of whipped cream including raspberry flavored, which was made pink for their recent 20th anniversary.
How to order:
Simply ask for a vanilla bean frappe mixed with almond or hazelnut pumps of syrup into the drink. For that extra taste of birthday batter, you can ask for a Starbucks cake pop to be blended within the vanilla bean Frappuccino. You can also ask for whipped cream!
Since this was originally released as a Birthday Cake Frappe for Starbucks’ 20th anniversary this year, it was limited edition, but thankfully, you’re able to order custom drinks with these ingredients.
