Brilliant Birthday Cakes

I’ve written recently about birthday disasters and birthday generosity. But who doesn’t love a good piece of cake?

Today I want to celebrate the birthday as a day to get creative with cakes. Herewith a gallery of fun birthday cakes I found doing a simple search on the fantabulously useful Foter.com:

The Ghostbusters sheet cake:

Or the Super Mario cake (I tried this birthday theme when my son turned five and am NOT sharing my efforts although they were certainly creative…hey, at least it tasted good).

Or this Lego one (which looks like even I could make it with some sheet pans and cupcakes):

I truly admire the originality people put on display when they want to serve up something special to friends and family. It’s one more reason that birthdays are so beautiful!
