Substitutions and Additions

How to Make Birthday Pie

  1. Form The Filling: Beat the cream cheese, vanilla extract, and almond extract until smooth. Sprinkle the instant pudding mix over the cream cheese and mix to combine. Mix in the marshmallow fluff, then fold in the rainbow confetti sprinkles and Cool Whip.
  2. Prepare The Pie: Spread the filling into the pre-made crust. Chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours to overnight.
  3. Decorate Your Dessert: Just before serving, pipe dollops of whipped topping around the edge of the pie and 1 dollop in the center. Sprinkle rainbow confetti sprinkles over the top.
  4. Serve: Slice into eight servings and serve. Enjoy!

Tips For Making The Best Birthday Pie

  • Transfer a premade crust to a glass or metal pie plate for more stability.
  • You can use the protective clear plastic cover as a top to the pie. Simply remove the paper insert and flip it over to form a dome.
  • If you cannot find the rainbow confetti sprinkles, you can substitute colorful sprinkles or “jimmies.” I used Great Value rainbow confetti sprinkles. The Great Value brand had more vibrant colors than the Wilton brand.

How to Store Birthday Pie

  • To Store: Store any leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • To Freeze: You can freeze the pie for 1 month. Allow the pie to thaw overnight in the refrigerator before slicing and serving.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make my own whipped cream instead of using store-bought whipped topping?

Yes, you can make homemade whipped cream instead of using a store-bought whipped topping. My recipe for Homemade Whipped Cream (Stabilized Recipe is super easy!

Can I use regular sprinkles instead of confetti sprinkles?

This recipe recommends confetti sprinkles because they don’t bleed color nearly as quickly as regular rainbow sprinkles. If you use regular sprinkles, they will bleed color almost as soon as you start folding them into the filling.
