Birthdays are great. Well, actually, let’s rephrase. Birthdays are great up to a certain point. As a kid, the day you are born is practically a holiday based on your kid-logic. Birthdays meant endless chances to ask for that special toy or gift. However, around the age of 20, birthdays start to mean that you are getting older, accepting more responsibility, and accountable to more people. Bummer. These adult birthday cakes will help ease the thought of getting older with a good sense of humor.
Your 20s are a weird decade. For the first part of your 20s, you are still young, potentially dependent on your parents, and are just earning responsibilities like being legally able to drink, finding a career, or perhaps finishing school. These adult birthday cakes bring you back to your childhood just for a second, so that you can enjoy your birthday and ignore those impending responsibilities.
Moving into your 30s, things change. You are truly an “adult” now. You most likely have a career established, might be in a serious relationship, and maybe even have kids or are buying a house. Whoa. These adult birthday cakes jokingly reflect that once you hit 30, there’s no going back to the crazy nights of your 20s, but that you can still take some time out on your birthday to connect with friends.
One of the goals of these adult birthday cakes is to remind you that your 40s are just as fantastic as your 30s, but with a few more “over the hill” jokes. Fully settled into a lifestyle and more than likely with a family, you may need a swig of good ol’ Jack every now and then to remind yourself that 40 really isn’t so old. Really.
Here’s hoping you have some money to blow on adult cakes by the time you hit your 50s. These adult birthday cakes are all about being amazing and showing off your personality regardless of what anyone thinks. If you haven’t hit your midlife crisis yet, you will soon, so why not blow some money either at the casino or if you can’t get there – a casino-themed cake?!
Alright, so you’ve hit your 60s. You have a nest egg, a family, and a nice house to call home. What more could you need? Oh, yeah, some free time to go fishing and some cash to buy an awesome boat. These adult birthday cakes capture the feelings of what it would be like to be 60+ and still look forward to your birthday with loved ones.
