Someone somewhere turns a year older today! In a planet with a population of 7.7 billion people, it’ll be hard to find a day without anybody celebrating their birthday, even February 29th for that matter. As amusing as it sounds, it also means that every other day is a day to celebrate. But how often do we realise that is a question to ponder on.
Talking about celebration, one thing that goes without saying is CAKES! There is no certain theory or logic behind this custom except owing it to some Greek tradition. However, it has been handed down over generations and stills plays a crucial part in any such celebration. Though some have switched to donuts or cupcakes but the point stays that there should be some sort of caking cutting and blowing of candles, without which a birthday remains incomplete.
With time as the extent of celebration increased, the demand for cakes also has come up. This meant the rise of more bakeries. Each brought along a plethora of options to pick from. Starting from a simple round cake, it has seen a change in shapes, sizes, the way of presentation and most all – flavours. All of these were in an attempt to please the ever increasing customers and so it did. However the transition did not limit itself to just these aspects. It spread across to the extent of the availability of cakes itself. Yes, I am talking about what we have been up to off late and that is ordering birthday cakes online. Given how our fast forward lifestyle has brought us to stay away from our loved ones, it has also aided in this phenomenon by coming up with such better options.
Just imagine this scenario, waking up at 12am for your birthday, not just to a phone call but also a delivery boy with a cake with your name on it. This being sent from a loved one at home. Could it get any better? Or imagine you are to plan for your child’s birthday party. You have everything ready except for the cake. Now just another cake wouldn’t do the job. Given the latest designs and trends, selecting a cake would not be easy at all. And going around looking for one can just make the whole process even more tedious. This is when the online platforms come to our rescue. It acts like a one stop destination and lets us choose from the best of options. For those struggling to come up with an idea of what sort of cake to go for, it gives us a wide range of options. While for the creative minds out there that need someone to implement it, it gives a platform to bring it into reality. With that said, I think it is time we check out the new options that are available in terms of online birthday cakes and be prepared to throw a little surprise for the upcoming birthday of your dear ones.
