We have let the kids choose what kind of cake they want and Chase has chosen something that is a bit different that a traditional cake. He likes Berry French Toast. It is baked in a cake pan, so it counts. We top it off with vanilla ice cream, so it is delicious.
Many are aware of our family tradition, which is, we have cake and ice cream for breakfast on birthday mornings. We've been doing it for years, and we love it. The choice Chase makes for his cake is actually quite healthy and is a true breakfast meal. I guess milk would be more healthy that ice cream, but at least we don't have a meal and then have the cake and ice cream after it.
