Birthday Cake Popcorn

Can you believe that The Endless Meal turned a year old on September 14th? Or it would have if it were a real thing.

Birthday Cake Popcorn

My first idea to celebrate this one year milestone was to recreate the first recipe I posted. Or more specifically, re-take the photo. It's cute, in an omg-I-can't-believe-I-thought-that-was-good-enough-to-post-online kind of way. I'm a little embarrassed to share it with you (I'm cringing a little inside) but if you're interested in seeing the first post ever on The Endless Meal, check out the Campfire Roasted Stuffed Red Peppers.

I don't have much of a sweet tooth but my fingers (and camera) were covered in sweet, sticky, birthday cake deliciousness throughout the whole photoshoot. If you are a fan of birthday cake you will love this.

And if you have a furry friend whose birthday you want to celebrate, try making this dog birthday cake!
