the best birthday cake alternatives



A few weeks ago I told you guys my feelings about birthday cake - I am SUPER into them. Really, I think I just have an affinity for cake in general (photo evidence here) - but in my dessert memories, birthday cakes seem to stand out among the rest. 

This most likely due to the fact that literally no one can judge you for how much cake you eat on your birthday. And in my mind, I roll that rule over into the next when I am eating leftover birthday cake for breakfast. 

But I have come to understand that not everyone feels this way about cake. There are people with gluten allergies, milk allergies, egg allergies...you know - legitimate medical stuff like that. And then there are some people who just straight up just don't like cake. Are those people sociopaths and/or serial killers? I will leave that up to you to decide...

What I am trying to say here is that just because someone can't have cake on their birthday does not mean they should go without some sort of birthday treat. So, today I have complied a list of my favorite non-birthday cake birthday treats!

Here are my top 5...

1. Birthday Cake Macarons (GF)

2. Chocolate Birthday Cake Doughnuts 

3. Chocolate Chip Birthday Cake Cookies

4. Confetti Birthday Cake Pie

5. Waffle Birthday Cake

Here are some other great options...

Birthday Cake Fudge 

Rice Krispy Treat Cake (GF)

Confetti Rice Kirspy Treats (GF)

Party Popcorn (GF)

Birthday Cake Cinnamon Rolls

Chocolate Birthday Cake Doughnuts 

Waffle Birthday Cake

Confetti Cake Pops

Birthday Cake Doughnuts 

Ok...that is it all I have for now!

Happy Baking!

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.
