Healthy birthday cakes have become a thing now that there are more health conscious parents in this generation. But come on, birthday’s are supposed to be fun so who would want a birthday cake that’s healthy but tastes like grass?
I remember attending a birthday party for a two-year-old whose parents are health freaks and I think they went overboard by serving a wheat grass birthday cake. Trust me, the cake looked like a field from the game Minecraft even though the game didn’t exist back then.
