Then I topped it off with amazing cream cheese frosting.

Birthday cake cookies are great for any celebration. I took them to our Super Bowl party and they were a great hit!  They are soft in the center and a little crunchy on the edges. However when you add the frosting on top, the frosting makes the whole cookie nice and soft.
