11 Birthday Cake-Inspired Treats Even Better Than The Real Thing
Birthdays come every year (our country's big day is coming up too!) and it's true that a standard cake can get boring (unless we are talking about some of those crazy fondant creations from Cake Boss, I am on board with those). When you're blowing out those candles and sinking your knife into another standard vanilla or chocolate cake (oh, by the way, you've been cutting cake wrong), you're probably wishing it was little more celebratory or funky or unique, right?
Before you get mopey that your birthday dessert is lame, remember that there is another way. I found 11 delicious birthday cake-inspired treats that are even better than a cake itself. Now you don't even need to make that birthday wish.
