Think you're the ultimate Cheez-It fan? You have to get this cake!
Cheez-It cheddar crackers is celebrating a big birthday in 2021. And everyone knows a birthday isn't a birthday without a cake, so the people at Kellogg's came up with something big. In honor of the famous square cheddar crackers, the powers that be hired celebrity Chef Stephanie Izard to create a special-edition birthday cake.
The cake will be available nationwide for purchase through Goldbelly for a limited time.
A big fan of Cheez-Its herself, Chef Izard concocted a recipe that incorporates the cheddar crackers throughout the cake from the batter to the topping.
"100 years isn't enough time to tell you how much I love Cheez-It crackers," said Chef Stephanie Izard. "My own wedding cake was inspired by Cheez-It, which ultimately led to a variety of Cheez-It menu items at our new bakery, Sugargoat. I can't wait for our fans to try the Cheez-Itennial Cake…it's sweet, tangy, and, of course, cheesy! Trust me, if you're as obsessed with Cheez-It as I am, this one's for you.”

The cake is made with an entire box of Cheez-Its and decorated with the brand’s signature colors. In between the layers, you’ll find a shortbread crumble, swirls of caramel, and chocolate-covered bits of Cheez-Its. Bright red icing has a hint of strawberry flavor and the top is decorated with more Cheez-It crackers.
The cakes serve up to 10 people and are $49 with free shipping at Goldbelly.
