Sometimes kids birthday party cakes can be hard to choose, but with a cake recipe like this one, you will be able to keep up with all of the other things that have to happen for a birthday party. The legend behind why we have birthday cakes on our birthdays goes back into our history. The candles that are put on a birthday cake go back traditions from Ancient Greece, when the people would make round cakes to honour the goddess of the moon, known as Artemis. The candles were arranged on top of the round cake that resembled the moon, and the fiery glow from the candles emanated the glow from the moon and the smoke was believed to carry the wishes to god as they were blown out. The actual first birthday cake started in Germany where people believed that the cake and candle represented the light of a person's life.

We still have continued these age old traditions and for people's birthdays we are accustomed to getting a birthday cake on our birthdays with the number of candles corresponding to the age we are turning that year. Its always nice to have your favourite cake on your birthday as well, as a reminder of how special you are to the people around you. There are so many different kinds of kids birthday cakes too these days that have designs of cartoon characters that they love, sports teams or dolls they play with that make it so fun for the kid receiving it. This pina colada trifle is packed full of great ingredients like pineapple, cake, whipped cream and cherries, and would be awesome for a cake for anyone's birthday or any celebration. The other thing is it is one of those easy desserts that you can just whip up in no time at all and have it ready for the day you need it for.
