My husband's 30th birthday is just a month away.
Right around this time, I begin planning his annual birthday cake alternative.
I call it the "soda pop cake."
He is not a sweets fan.
No cake, rarely ice cream, and certainly no frosting. He borderline hates the stuff.
So, four years ago I came up with this alternative and the idea stuck.
Just get a plethora of glass-bottle sodas such as Virgil's or Izze.
Arrange tightly into a basket or box and decorate with sparkly, festive goodness.
I use the tall "candle-lit dinner" kind of candles so he at least has something to blow out after we sing.
He loves it and everyone enjoys taking a sip of the specialty sodas.
