Why don't my funfetti cookies taste like funfetti/birthday cake?

They don't have that distinct flavour of birthday cake. It always ends up tasting like the white chip I'm using in the cookie more than anything.

Cake and cookies have different different moisture and fat content and different exposures to heat all of which affect which flavors develop as well as textures.

You might try getting some of the birthday cake flavoring by Amoretti. I use it in white and funfetti cakes to get that flavor. It might help in cookies. Also, artificial vanilla is called for in a few funfetti cake recipes I've seen. May be closer to the fake taste of a box mix.
