REVIEW: Burger King Cup Cake Sundae Shake

I wanted to use the festive-looking Burger King Cup Cake Sundae Shake as my birthday cupcake replacement, but it probably wouldn’t have been suitable.

Because by the time someone lit the candle and everyone finished singing “Happy Birthday” to me in English and Japanese, while holding sparklers, the candle probably would have melted through the whipped cream and sprinkles and then extinguished itself in the ice cream.

Also, since I wouldn’t have blown out the candle, my wish for either world peace or the 2010 Oxford Dictionary Word of the Year to be “redonkidonkulous” wouldn’t come true.

By the way, “redonkidonkulous” is used to describe how ridiculous it is to use the word “redonkulous” all the time.

Like all fast food milkshakes, the Cup Cake Sundae Shake is high in saturated fat and sugar, which means, if you have children and want to lower their weight and your electricity bill, just get a hamster wheel that your child can fit in, connect it to something that can convert the motion of the wheel into electricity and let the dozens of grams of carbohydrates and sugar power your child as they provide energy for your home by making the hamster wheel move and a brisk, consistent pace.

The milkshake really did taste like a cupcake, thanks to the yellow cake-flavored ice cream. It looked and tasted like I was eating yellow cake batter, except without the possibility of getting salmonella or getting my tongue stuck in a hand mixer. It also almost tastes like egg nog ice cream. The milkshake was really good and brought back memories of those days when my classmates would call me “Cupcake Face,” not because I ate a lot of cupcakes, but because when I put a rain hat my head, it would look like an upside down cupcake, thanks to my chubby cheeks and lack of a hamster wheel for me to get some exercise.

The whipped cream and candy sprinkles didn’t add much flavor, but it did make it look prettier, like normal clothing does with Lady Gaga. The sprinkles did end up getting stuck on my molars, but since I didn’t brush my teeth right after consuming it, I got a little treat about 20 minutes later.

Overall, the Burger King Cup Cake Sundae Shake was a pleasant treat, and if it could hold a candle without melting the dessert, I would blow it out and wish for it to come back again.

Item: Burger King Cup Cake Sundae Shake
Price: $2.89
Size: Small
Purchased at: Burger King
Rating: 7 out of 10
Pros: Tastes like a cupcake. Also kind of reminds me of egg nog ice cream. Looks like yellow cake batter. Comes with a fat ass straw. Candy sprinkles made it look pretty. Hamster wheels for children to power your home. Lady Gaga with normal clothes.
Cons: Whipped cream and candy sprinkles didn’t add flavor. Not wise to eat with a value meal from Burger King, unless you love being overweight. Candy sprinkles got stuck in my molars. My head in a rain hat. Lady Gaga with whatever she usually wears. Excessive use of the word “redonkulous.”

  1. I’ve been being very careful about what I eat, but if this shows up in Japan, I’m going to at least try it (and make my husband eat the rest of it).


  2. Didn;t know about this, it is regional or a national launch? If someone told me that BK had a cup cake shake, I would run… but it seems like you enjoyed it, so I might have to give it a try.

  3. That looks so good and it’s in one of my alltime favorite dessert flavors. But darn, it’s almost half of my daily caloric intake… If it tastes as good as you say, it’ll prolly be worth gaining back all the weight I’ve lost.

  4. Hehe, kids generating electricity in hamster wheels. This shake would be a great way to power the kids.

  5. I am going to the states tomorrow to do some shopping and I will be buying this. Omg how i will be having one.. mmmm…..

  6. I now must haunt my computer because I immediately suffered a massive myocardial infarction as soon as I gazed upon this death bomb. 🙁
    Eh, the pumpkin pie shake tastes better. Too bad I can’t have it now since I’m post mortum.

  7. @Orchid64: And if the US get the Windows 7 Whopper, I’m going to try it and then give the rest to the homeless guy who hangs out near the 7-11. Then he’ll owe me.

    @wibia: I think it might be a regional launch since i found the nutrition facts on a PDF called “Regional Nutritionals”

    @Chuck: Drink half and then give the rest to the homeless guy who hangs out near a convenience store.

    @Ryan: Drink it! Drink it! Drink it!

    @Ayumiin: No, it’s not worth all the weight you’ve lost. Just experience it vicariously through me and let me gain the weight.

    @Poop Chef: Isn’t that the reason for having children.

    @Jillian: The angle I took the photo might be skewing it.

    @Lex: Heck, have two. Our economy needs it.

    @Jim: No, you should be saying, “17 grams of saturated fat … MMMM” 🙂

    @educatedbumette: I would try to jump start your heart, but I don’t have a human sized hamster wheel to product the electricity needed.

    @grinder: It comes in small and large sizes, but I’m not sure if 22 ounces is the small or large size. But that’s all the nutritional info the website gave me.

  8. You should YouTube search for videos of Lady Gaga before she called herself by such a stupid name. She was gorgeous, angelic almost. There’s a video of her singing and playing the piano, and it’s very soothing. Then you remember what she looks like now…. and that she has a penis.
