Sprinkles For Breakfast

birthday cake decorating ideas

I’ve said it before on here, but I will say it again...the BEST part about a birthday is the CAKE. Hands down. No questions asked. Now I am not too picky when it comes to the flavor of the cake - chocolate, vanilla, carrot - any kind of cake will do. But I do think that a Birthday Cake should have some sort of celebratory look to it! (Sprinkles are always a good idea).

I just think presenting the birthday boy or girl with a fabulous cake really makes them feel special. So, if you are someone who likes to go that extra mile and make homemade birthday cakes, I have some fun and easy decorating ideas for you. And if you are new to cake baking, I have a whole post on how you can easily start baking cakes like a pro here! All of these cakes are simple to make and they all look (and taste) AWESOME.

And yes, there is a sprinkle theme here.

I might be the only person in the history of the world that has ever been grounded from baking. That's right. When I was a teen, it wasn't the computer, or the phone or the tv that got taken away. For me, it was the unsalted butter.
