|Instead of a birthday cake, consider a platter of cupcakes. Beloved by children and adults alike, they eliminate the need to cut a cake, have built-in portion control and can provide guests with their favorite flavors and special needs (chocolate or vanilla cake, different icings, some Splenda-based cupcakes for those who can’t have sugar, gluten-free cupcakes for those who can’t have wheat). If you don’t have a cake stand or cupcake holder, arrange highly decorated cupcakes on a round tray (try topping with chocolate medallions or marzipan figures). You can leave an unadorned cupcake in the center to hold the candle(s).
