    Default What to drink with birthday cake

    I am wondering what people have to drink when they eat birthday cake
    with icing. The only things I can tolerate is milk, coffee or water.
    Soft drinks do not taste good, nor does iced tea or hot chocolate.
    Mixed drinks, beer and wine also seem like a poor choice.

    Milk, tea or coffee. That's it for me.

    Who in their right mind, in their entire life, actually gave it any thought?

    Depends on what kind of cake and frosting comprise the birthday cake. A
    lemony cake would go well with some kind of lemon soda (e.g., Sprite or
    7-Up). It would also go all right with iced tea. A chocolate cake (or yellow
    cake with chocolate frosting) would go well with coffee, milk, orange soda
    (or orange-flavored fruit punch), or a White Russian. A banana cake would go
    well with a piņa colada, chocolate milk, or rum & coke.

    Did you have some specific cake and icing in mind?

    I agree with Bob.
    Then there are some decadent cakes that are made that are wonderful
    with a glass of a dessert wine.

    I used to make, and still rarely do, some cakes from the chocolate
    maven Alice Medrich. They are European style, most of them, and they
    go well with something like port, or in one case where I made such a
    cake, a raspberry "wine". For the cake in question, which I made to
    serve some friends of mine, they brought a little bottle of a
    raspberry dessert wine from Bonny Doon. It was a match made in
    heaven, with the dark chocolate ganache and the raspberry.

    The last time it mattered to me I was eight and asked for Hawaiian
    punch, which they made from syrup. It was perfect. The only one who
    can answer the question is the birthday boy or girl. -aem

    I agree with milk, coffee, or water with cake.

    When I was very young I liked sips of beer with chocolate cake.
    Now not so much.

    Why, thank you, Andy. You flatter me. However, I am not worthy of such a
    prestigious award. My post pales in comparison to some of the "gems" that
    have been authored by "others".

    For everyone else, I agree, but for me it would always be unsweetened iced
    tea.

    If I have it on hand, I always drink buttermilk with chocolate cake,
    particularly German's Chocolate Cake.

    Having said that, when I was in college I can remember having many a
    chocolate ice cream soda made with beer.

    I do not normally eat any kind of sweet cake if I can help it, but
    sometimes I am compelled to have a bite, to appease a particularly
    vicious birthday girl or boy. A sparkling Moscato d'Asti or even a good
    Asti Spumante would go very well with many kinds of cakes and other
    desserts. Depending on the cake, the right kind of beer can be the best
    thing to accompany it. An Imperial stout (especially with chocolate- or
    coffee-based cakes or desserts) or a fruit-based beer, such as a Belgian
    framboise or kriek are definitely to be considered. In both cases, wine
    and beer, it is not just their particular flavours that make them work -
    it is also their palate-cleansing carbonation.

    Nah, milk or coffee or tea.

    Champagne. It's an inspired pairing, really.

    Oooh yes. Champagne is great. A dessert wine can be wonderful too...

    I was going to post the same exact thing. If the cake has cream and/or
    custard, then Asti is the perfect pairing.
    And if the cake has good "deepness" of tastes, then even a raisin wine would
    do well, I'm thinking of Moscato di Pantelleria, Passito di Pantelleria but
    also raisin wines from the north, alas harder to find, as Loazzolo.

    For mature adults the most popular universally acceptible beverage to serve
    and consume with a celebratory cake, and more so than all others combined,
    is Champagne. The last time I was offered milk and/or a soft drink with
    birthday cake the celebrant was like five years old. Coffee and tea would
    typically be served after the cake ceremony. I've never seen where mature
    adults were offered milk at a celebratory affair except in a psychiatric
    institution. You are obviously infantile and/or not well.
