We're all familiar with the traditional birthday cake. But what if your child doesn’t love cake as much as other desserts or maybe you just want to try something new? Let’s take a look at a few surprising and sweet treats you can whip up and serve to please your birthday boy or girl, their friends, and your guests!
One easy birthday dessert solution is a donut tower. Busy parents can rely on their donut shop to have dozens of flavors at a reasonable price. Simply grab a tiered centerpiece, place the donuts, and voila! You have yourself a delicious donut tower. Icing covered donuts with sprinkles always please guests, and they look festive too. A donut tower also makes for a great photo-op to share on social media or your scrapbook.
If you are looking for a fun activity style dessert, a s’mores table is a great idea. Consider the age of your guests with this one as little ones may not be so careful with fire. All you need is a small heater and skewers for roasting the marshmallows. Then lay out all the goodies you want for the kids to try. You can add some frosting and sprinkles to the mix, for a birthday twist.
Rice Crispy Treats
One of the easiest desserts you and the family can make are rice crispy treats. Not only are they gooey and delicious, but they are made with simple ingredients and often a great choice if their may be food allergies to consider. You can easily shape this crispy dessert into fun animal characters or even letters to spell out your kiddo’s name, a great way to personalize the dessert just as you would on a birthday cake.
