Give your birthday a colorful touch this year with some uber-fancy cake pops. Crumbled cake mixed with icing, after which it is coated with some more icing, and then loaded with a generous helping of colorful sprinkles is a sight to see. Doesn't matter if you love lollipops or cakes, cake pops give the best of both worlds.
Why limit yourself to a single flavor of the plain old birthday cake when you can get an assortment of all your favorite flavors with a donut cake. Either choose a classic glazed or the ones coated with cinnamon. Give your birthday a more decadent taste with some cream, custard, or jelly-filled donuts, and don't forget those heavenly French crullers. Don't have just one, two, or even three; this day of the year you have the license to overindulge.
If you're one of those who absolutely loves breakfast, celebrate this love of yours on a day that's meant for you, with a delicious buttery dessert with a warmth that gently caresses your throat. You guessed it right, we're talking about a cinnamon roll cake. A drizzle of cream cheese glaze is all that it needs to be perfect.
Make your birthday more exquisite with a cake replacement that's simply a burst of different flavors and colors. We're talking about the dessert that seems to have taken the food industry by storm - macarons. They're incredibly light, melt-in-mouth cookies, that sandwich a luscious caramel, buttercream, or ganache filling. Purists could stick to classic chocolate or raspberry, while the brave can try unique flavors like foie gras.
For a healthier and less tedious cake replacement to make from scratch, try crepes or pancakes. You could separate the batter into different batches and add different food coloring to them. Stack these different-colored pancakes with a little bit of Greek yogurt, drizzle some raspberry coulis, and load it with lots of berries. What you get is just yum yum yum!
Frozen Banana Popsicles
Just another healthy alternative for the regular birthday cake. Brownie point is that, these banana popsicles seem to be really popular with kids. But wait! We found another perk... these are extremely easy to make! Just half the bananas crosswise, dip them in melted chocolate, coat with your favorite topping, and freeze.
This easy no-bake dessert is not only a treat to eat but also a treat to make! Crunchy rice squares laced with butter and made chewy with marshmallows is a total crowd pleaser. Either dip these in melted chocolate or smear them with bright-colored buttercream icing, and top them with some colorful sprinkles.
After overworking our sweet tooth we've decided to take a savory approach to find the perfect alternative to your birthday cake this year. We suggest a pizza cake. The chewy base, the pepperonis, chunky tomatoes, gooey cheese, and wafts of basil are definitely going to make your birthday memorable!
