My first memory as a child was an Oscar the Grouch cake with 4 bright candles. Since that moment, my birthdays have always felt synonymous with cake batter, candles, and fancy decorations. Fast forward to today’s competitive landscape of cakes and we have fancy creations that include elaborate fondant options and architectural elements that would make Frank Lloyd Wright proud.
Let’s admit it. Birthday cakes are beautiful today but they are also a bit boring and predictable.
Enter monkey bread. It is just as a fun and we would like to argue that it tastes even better than the alternative. So, why not consider it as a birthday option? Here are three solid reasons to consider monkey bread for your next celebration:
Monkey bread offers one alternative where no cake on this planet can compete. You can pull it apart and enjoy it in bite size pieces. Plus, birthdays are celebrated with others so why not capitalize on the opportunity to enjoy the masterpiece as a group?
Kids Love It
Cakes limit the opportunity for participation where the monkey bread creation and baking process provides plenty of chances for bonding moments. Think about how much fun it is to see your kids shaking a bag full of cinnamon and sugar or letting them indulge in pinching the dough. Monkey bread provides processes that bring families together on special moments like a birthday.
If you were to say I am having a chocolate cake for my birthday or a red velvet option it never draws attention. Now, if you say I am going to be putting together a special monkey bread cake, people become curious and want to learn more. It’s unexpected. It’s fun. And it’s truly original.
So, what are you waiting for? The next time you think about your birthday or your child’s birthday, it’s time to look at monkey bread as an innovative and exciting option. Try it. You’ll love it and so will your kids.
