  1. I used my favorite Mango Wood Board from Sur La Table. This beautiful 20 inch round board with a handle is the perfect size and shape for the amount of treats I wanted to put on it. You could certainly use a smaller or larger board depending on the number of people you’re planning to serve. The Birthday Dessert Board I created here could serve 12-14 happily.
  2. It all starts with a mini decorated layer cake in the middle of the board. I got the 6-inch Party Cake from Trader Joe’s, but you could always make your own or purchase one from your favorite bakery. The Trader Joe’s Party Cake is a steal of a deal though. For only $6.99 you get two layers of fluffy, white, vanilla cake, covered in a rich, vanilla buttercream frosting and decorated with rainbow colored confetti sprinkles. It’s adorable and delicious!
  3. Then comes an epic selection of sprinkled and colorful treats fanning out from the cake. A masterpiece of some simple homemade treats along with some store-bought goodies. Happy Birthday!!!
