I am IN LOVE with these cookies. They are so stinkin good and just blow my mind everytime I eat one. It starts off by saying, I just want one bite . . . then two bites . . . then three cookies later I finally decide I better wait a few hours before I eat more.
The frosting is TO-DIE-FOR. It kinda reminds me of the flavor of bakery frosting, that I have been searching and searching for a recipe for forever and the texture is beyond creamy.
Your family and friends will go nuts over these.

(Printable Recipe) or (Printable with Picture)
1 pkg. Devils Food Cake Mix
3/4 c. shortening
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix, eggs and shortening and mix until well blended. Dough will be very thick. Roll into 1'' - 1 1/2'' balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Tops will be cracked. Cool completely. Yield: around 3 dozen cookies or 18 sandwiches.
Birthday Cake Frosting:
1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c. dry Funfetti cake mix
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. almond extract, opt.
pinch of salt
3 c. powdered sugar
1/4 c. milk, give or take
sprinkles, for garnish
In a medium mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy. Add the dry cake mix, vanilla extract, almond extract and a pinch of salt. Mix until combined. Begin adding powdered sugar, one cup at a time. Add milk as you go to reach desired consistency. You may or may not need all of the milk. Spread frosting over one side of half of the cookies and top each with another cookie. Roll in sprinkles, if desired. Makes enough to generously fill 18 sandwich cookies.
Jenn's Notes: These are perfect. Make them now.
*Update 5/29/13 - Since I posted this recipe I tried the real Birthday Cake OREOS and they tasted like they have butter flavoring in them. I think if you added butter extract to this frosting recipe, they would taste just like the real thing.
