How to Eat Leftover Birthday Cake

My mama made me a two-layer German chocolate cake for my 31st birthday.

I eat it for breakfast.


You know what tastes great with absolutely any chocolate cake? Coffee!

In case you’re wondering, the specific coffee in question is coarsely ground fair trade Guatemalan coffee from Kansas City’s own the Roasterie. I French-pressed it myself this morning.

I also eat my leftover birthday cake after dinner.

You know what goes great with German chocolate cake in the evening? Hawaiian beer!

I am totally obsessed with this beer right now. I discovered Kona Brewing Company back when my friend Kenton and I visited Maui in 2008. In just the past month, the brand has become available at our neighborhood liquor store.

There are three other varieties available, but the Aloha Series Koko Brown is my favorite. It is brewed with toasted coconut.

Clearly none of the decadence on this page is suitable for canines to share.

But the non-screw beer caps do require the help of party dog Luke and his super handy bottle opener DIY collar accessory.

At your service!

What sort of decadence are you indulging in today?

  1. chocolate cake with beer? really ? I will try it – sounds interesting ;o)

  2. German chocolate cake is my all time favorite!! I am a little envious out here!

  3. Cake sounds good, now to find some…

  4. MMM…both options sound tasty. You could interoffice mail me some… 😉 And as long as there is birthday cake, I think it’s completely acceptable to keep celebrating your birthday!

  5. Cake is almost the perfect breakfast food. Only pie is better. With coffee, awesome. Happy 31st, by the way you’re still a puppy in my book!

  6. I’m not a coffee drinker or a beer drinker but cake… I’m all about the cake and it’s good any time of day!

  7. That’s one nifty gadget collar. Definitely like that! Hubby would be bowling you over to get to the chocolate cake.

  8. I’m such a fan of cake for breakfast on your birthday. Or anyone else’s birthday for that matter! Luke is just too gorgeous!
