Birthdays are the perfect time to celebrate. Friends and family gather around, bringing cake and presents, all to honor one special person. The cake is a key component in any successful party, and should be prepared with the guest of honor’s favorites in mind. In celebration of HERB’S 10th birthday, the search began for the perfect cannabis-themed cake.
Cakes come in every shape, size, color and flavor, making them easily customizable to fit every occasion. Some cakes are transformed into works of art, featuring airbrushing, molded figures and chocolate and sugar details. To commemorate our 10th birthday, here are 10 cannabis-themed cakes, perfect for honoring any enthusiast.
1. Layered leaves
Simple white fondant is laid over the double-layer cake, with green fondant used to create the familiar leaves and trimming. Attention to detail is key when putting lines on the petals. This is a simple and classy design, sure to fit in nicely at any herb lover’s gathering.
The sweet little leaf just wants to wish his buds “Happy Birthday,” and share in a celebratory joint.
3. Light one, roll one
Everything a cannabis-loving companion could need to enjoy an epic smoke session. Different colored fondants allow for endless creations. Some real thought and planning went into designing this one!
4. Special candles
What more could anyone ask for? Delicious, chocolate cake, with joints replacing the traditional candles. However, maybe don’t spark them all up at once; enjoy the rest of the celebration.
5. Giant joint
Sure to elevate the whole party, this ginormous joint is really more of a showpiece, than a dessert item. After creating something so astounding, it would almost be a crime to slice it up.
6. Bubbling enthusiasm
This bong looks so real! The coloring and marbling is done with food color and oil, used to create an edible paint. Such life-like details could only be achieved by someone who has spent some time around a glass piece or two.
7. Sprouting idea
Placing a real baby plant atop the cake is a great way to show love. Always be sure of the laws for a particular state, before beginning cultivation on anything. Once the plant begins budding, it will be the gift that keeps on giving.
This leaf cut out is simple, but elegant and timeless. Buttercream frosting is easily dyed various shapes of green and brown, for the lines. With a nice, fat, hand-rolled joint laid across the top, this cake is sure to make birthday wishes come true.
9. Function and design
A double-decker, designed to the max, beautiful birthday cake. This masterpiece is topped with a functioning bong, made from blown sugar and molded chocolate; a cannabis cake fit for a king!
10. Real love
It is their birthday, after all, just give them what they really want. Nice, sticky, dank nuggets, formed together to create a cake-like shape; a reverse of the usual cannabis-shaped cake. This is also a great way to take care of the cake and present all in one step.
