A birthday celebration isn't complete without some tasty birthday cake! When exactly did all of it begin, though? Who decided that having cake as part of a celebration of becoming older was a good idea? It is generally agreed upon that a birthday cake in its modern form was first baked in Germany sometime during the Middle Ages. The Germans had a tradition of celebrating the birthdays of children with cake and called the occasion Kinderfest.

But who's to decide what does and does not qualify as a cake? In the beginning, cakes were more similar to course bread, but through time, they evolved into a variant that was far sweeter and was named Geburtstagorten. Who says that we have to conform to social standards?

Therefore, if you are getting tired of traditional birthday cakes, here are some options that will make the occasion even more unforgettable! Put some candles on top of them, and the problem will be solved.


Hamburger

Birthday Cake Alternatives

 

Oh, yeah, everyone is familiar with the classic hamburger. Just so there is no misunderstanding, we are referring to a patty of ground meat that is placed inside of a sliced bun or bread roll.

Hamburgers are typically accompanied by condiments such as ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, relish, or a "special sauce," as well as cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, bacon, or chilis.

Someone who doesn't have much of a craving for sweets might like having hamburgers instead of cake on their birthday. They are round like cake, and that's sufficient enough for us. You can either pile them up, or you can just offer the birthday girl or boy a single hamburger in its whole. Put some candles on top of it, and then you can begin singing "Happy Birthday."


Waffles

Birthday Cake Alternatives

 

Are you having a birthday celebration in the morning? No problem! Go get your waffle maker ready, and start mixing!

Waffles are a delicious and healthy alternative to traditional birthday cakes. Not only can you eat it like cake by topping it with whipped cream and sprinkles, but you can also spice things up by adding fried chicken or honey to the mix.

Gather the celebrant’s friends and family to sing Happy Birthday around the waffle cake. You can stack them and then light a candle on top. It is much simpler to give your guests a cake made of a stack of waffles instead of having to worry about the cake pieces being of different sizes for all the guests.


Lasagnas

Birthday Cake Alternatives

 

For those of you who prefer pasta to cake on your birthdays, here's your solution. A homemade classic lasagna dish with soft noodles, a cheesy filling, and a thick meaty tomato sauce can be a delicious substitute for traditional birthday cake.

Pasta, a variety of cheeses, and a flavorful meat sauce are layered and baked in a homemade lasagna. Everyone loves a hot, bubbling slice of lasagna that has just come out of the oven. To guarantee that your next birthday party is a success, you should prepare this dish from scratch.

You can't go wrong with a green salad and glazed carrots as sides for your homemade lasagna. Remember the bread! Your lasagna will taste great with breadsticks, garlic bread, or some warm dinner rolls.

Don't forget to add the celebrant's candles to the top, either.


Macaroons

Birthday Cake Alternatives

 

Let's celebrate a birthday in true French fashion by having macaroons, shall we? Although actually in France, birthdays aren't traditionally celebrated with macaroons, but if you want to switch things up for your next birthday cake, you can try using macarons instead!

The world-famous macaroon is a dessert that grabs your attention the moment you see it, and when you eventually get the chance to bite into it, it has a taste that is unlike any other sweet treat you've ever had. In place of cake for a birthday celebration, consider serving macaroons instead; not only are they simple to serve, but they also deliver the ideal amount of sugary sweetness!

Even though you can't really stick a birthday candle in a macaroon without it crumbling apart, you can still stack them up for the celebrant and the rest of the guests to admire on the special day.


Croissants

Birthday Cake Alternatives

 

Instead of a traditional birthday cake, you might want to consider celebrating your next special occasion with the rich flavour of butter croissants. This yeasted dough is layered with butter and then given a series of folds, which ultimately results in the characteristic appearance of traditional croissants.

These croissants are the result of a labour of love and are totally deserving of the time since they are light and airy, shatteringly crunchy, and have a flavour that is deeply caramelized and buttery. The versatility of using croissants as a birthday cake is one of the many advantages of doing so. You have the option of eating it with something savoury like ham and cheese, or you can go the sweet route and eat it with chocolate syrup.

Despite the fact that there are many delicious alternatives available, there is nothing wrong with opting for the classic birthday cake. Instead, you could choose more than one simply for the sake of variety for your guests as well as for the fun of it!
