Birthday plans are always a nice thing to think about, especially when it comes to your own birthday every year! There are plenty of popular birthday traditions to consider and many people use the traditional birthday cake and ice cream as the dessert of their choice. However, more often than not many people simply decide to purchase a birthday cake at a local grocery store, possibly with a birthday message written on the top. It is safe to say that this is the way that over half of all birthdays are celebrated. There definitely needs to be a birthday cake revolution, though, because homemade birthday cakes are a great way not only to give a gift to someone, but to also celebrate your own birthday!
It’s all in the Technique!
Homemade birthday cakes are definitely the yummiest birthday cakes on the planet and there are literally an unlimited number of ways in which one can go about making their own birthday cake. However, the simplest way to do so is to use a simple recipe that consists of sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla, flour, baking powder, and milk. Many people who make homemade birthday cakes do so without a recipe, but for first-timers it may be necessary to actually have a recipe in front of you. It really is all in the technique, though, and how much of each ingredient you use in your birthday cake! But this is definitely the most easy way to bake a birthday cake for yourself or someone else.
Add some sprinkles, chocolate, or other sweet ingredient!
One way to spice up your birthday cake is to throw in some other ingredient which you like. This can range anything from chocolate chips to sprinkles and even cinnamon. As mentioned, there are literally millions of ways to arrange your birthday cake. If you are going to add cinnamon or sprinkles to your cake, though, one of the best things to do would be to search in several cookbooks for the type of birthday cake that you’re looking to bake! Experimenting, though, always works and is a great way to get baking experience!
Give Away Your Cakes!
An interesting thing to do with your homemade birthday cake is to give it away to your friend or family who’s having their birthday! You can bake the birthday cake in a small pan so that it can be like a personalized birthday cake or you could choose to make cupcakes out of the batter that you make. Either way, both of these gift ideas are great if you’re looking for an inexpensive but creative way to give a birthday gift to your friends or family.
If you want to try something different rather than buying a birthday cake at the local grocery store, choosing to go homemade is the best thing that you can do! Not only do homemade birthday cakes taste so good, but they also have that flavor and pride inside because you put your hard work and dedication right into it!
