There is no birthday without a cake. No matter how old you are, we all need to blow the candles…
What if the person celebrating the birthday does not have a sweet tooth? Well, there is a solution!
Some of us do not quite enjoy eating sweet things. What should they serve for their breakfast then? The solution arrives straight from hot Mexico. One of the most popular dishes from Mexican cuisine is tacos. These are small tortillas (corn or wheat) with aromatic filling (meat, vegetables, seafood, spices) that can successfully replace the birthday cake as we know it.

The age on the plate
With tacos you can arrange the digits corresponding to the age being celebrated. The whole thing could be also decorated with slices of limes, coriander, avocado or mango. A tomato or cucumber salsa also go well with it. If you want, you can stick the candles into sash savory cake, too.

Easier than the cake
You can take it for granted than all your carnivorous friends will love it. Most importantly, the dish is way easier to prepare than a traditional birthday cake. You won’t have to keep an eye on the oven to see if the cake is flat/ thick enough. No more wasted cream or failed sugar ornaments. Tacos always tastes good and for sure it will surprise them.
So what are you waiting for? Buy some beef, chicken and tomatoes and get down to work!
