When I was a kid, it was hard for me to understand why some people did not like birthday cake. In my eyes, it was the closest you could get to serving happiness on a plate. Delicious cake, sugary frosting and bright colored candles - what was there not to like?
To this day, it is still one of my favorite foods. But as I have gotten older, I have grown to accept that people have different tastes - and some of those tastes do not like birthday cake.
However, that doesn't mean the cake haters of the world should be subject to a cakeless birthday celebration. (That's kind of the best part of a birthday, right?) It just means we have to find them a different kind of cake. There are a lot of options - cheesecake, ice cream cake, molten chocolate cake - or last week I even made an entire cake out of Rice Kirspy Treats.
Or, if breakfast is more your thing, you can always go with this Confetti Waffle Birthday Cake. Stacks of delicious confetti waffles, smothered with what some may find aggressive amounts of whipped cream, and of course, lots and lots of sprinkles. It's pretty top notch in terms of breakfast, and not too shabby in terms of birthday cake. And even though I hate to admit it, this pretty stack of waffles may just bring me as much happiness as a good old fashioned slice birthday cake.
