The Best Confetti Waffle Birthday Cake

How to Make a Waffle Birthday Cake

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.

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.
