Why Cake is an Easy and Fun Way to Celebrate a Birthday
Let me just preface this by saying, I know that refined sugar isn't good for us AND I also think a birthday cake is a fun and easy way to celebrate. I love the tradition of lighting the candles in the cake, singing Happy Birthday and making a wish for the year. I used to bake all of our birthday cakes and do my best to decorate them (the fondant disaster of 2013 pops up very clearly in my mind) but now I order them from one of my good friends, Marci. Her chocolate cake is literally the best chocolate cake I have ever tasted and her decorations are absolutely amazing. Every dessert on my website was done by her and some were done with custom cookie cutters she had made to match a design.
If you like to make your own cakes and/or you are on a tight budget, you can make a basic cake really fun with a few additions. This construction party cake started with just a plain buttercream chocolate cake. I used a couple trucks and some chocolate rocks to make a cake any truck fan would love. If you are hosting a construction themed party, consider buying a construction party themed box to save time and make your life easier!
