What do you do for your son’s 21st birthday when he’s away at college and really embracing the CrossFit culture? Three words: CrossFit Birthday Cake.
CrossFit isn’t just a great way to improve fitness — it’s more than that. With their intense and demanding workouts, CrossFit members are like warriors.
The Workouts of the Day (WOD) identifies what will be done and then becomes scored to track performance.
With this in mind, Dream Day Cakes knew what we must do — create an intense CrossFit Birthday Cake.
Most likely, the first thing you notice is the giant mug of beer. Despite the physical demands of the CrossFit workouts, this still is a cake to celebrate a 21st birthday.
We tried to use many elements of the CrossFit training methodology in the cake itself. Our birthday boy climbs weights to achieve his beer. This is a reward for a demanding climb.
The weights were cake, offset slightly. The beer was also cake. Delicious, full of calorie cake. Fondant weights adorned the stack, and our birthday boy was also made from fondant. Completely edible.
Wait, is that a WOD?
Why yes, it is. Today’s Workout of the Day is to celebrate Wesley’s 21st Birthday.
This cake was all about the details. From weights to water bottles, WODs to T-Shirts — we learned more about CrossFit than most bakers will ever know. =)
For this 21st birthday cake, the theme was CrossFit. But, like all of our Dream Day Cakes, this cake was about individualized details. After all, we know more than anyone… it’s the little things that count. That’s even true with custom birthday cakes.
