Birthdays are one of the most celebrated occasions for any person. It’s a time when friends, family members and close ones come together to spend time and celebrate. It could be a small gathering at home or for some, it’s a chance to go all out and make that person feel special (you could even stretch out and plan a surprise party for them too, but that is a lot of work!). One of the most important things for a birthday occasion is the cake for your loved one. If you’re a baking enthusiast or a complete novice (like myself but enjoys watching the Great British Bake Off!) making that cake yourself is the most satisfying and rewarding thing you can do. Why not be brave and make it! You might surprise yourself and many have told me it’s actually been very therapeutic. You might also have so much fun decorating it. Decorate using a theme or a favourite icon or activity they love to do. It is a perfect way to show how much you love that person.
