Birthday celebrations usually include similar elements: Balloons, presents, candles and the ever-present birthday cake. Why cake? It’s been a tradition since the Middle Ages to bake a sweet bread or cake for a loved one’s birthday.

We’re all for traditions, but we also like to find new ways to celebrate milestones like birthdays. If you’re the kind of individual who thinks outside the cakebox – or you know someone who is with an upcoming birthday – we’ve got big ideas for you!

Make a statement this year and opt for a truly unique dessert sure to wow the crowd. Here are three reasons to forget the birthday cake from the gourmet specialists at Chocolate Pizza Company.

1. Not Everyone Likes Cake.

It’s true. Some people genuinely do not like the texture or flavor of birthday cake. Give them a reason to show up to the party with a Chocolate Pizza and Peanut Butter Wings Combo they won’t find anywhere but Chocolate Pizza Company. Our gourmet Chocolate Pizza creations are so unique, we had them trademarked. And our signature Peanut Butter Wings – crisp, rippled potato chips that are slathered in peanut butter then dipped in rich milk or dark chocolate – are a salty-sweet sensation like no other.

You can also choose the size and toppings on your Chocolate Pizza to suit the birthday celebrant’s tastes, with options like chocolate and peanut butter candies, savory nut combinations or marshmallow and graham cracker s’mores ingredients. This is one crowd-pleaser of a dessert they’ll be talking about for months.

2. A Chocolate Pizza Makes a Stunning Centerpiece for Any Table.

Many birthday cakes look alike. The scalloped frosting, the multiple layers, even the sculpted flower decorations are so familiar to us we hardly notice them anymore. But a Chocolate Pizza is a sight to behold. We pour our gourmet chocolate directly into real pizza pans, then we top them by hand with colorful chocolate and peanut butter candies, nut combinations or other delights. The real icing on our gourmet chocolate treats, though, is the fact that we can hand-script your personal birthday message in white chocolate for a customized creation sure to bring oohs and ahs from everyone at the table. You can get even more creative with individually wrapped Chocolate Pizza Slices that make super-cute party favors or place settings. With over a dozen flavors to choose from, they’ll be the hit of the party.

3. Your Loved Ones Deserve the Very Best.

Our Chocolate Pizzas are gourmet chocolate desserts. We handcraft each one from high-quality Swiss-style chocolate that we blend with finely ground homemade English toffee for a subtle but distinct flavor and velvety texture. Then we hand-decorate each one to make it a truly unique gourmet chocolate gift. Make the day extra special with other gourmet gifts birthday celebrants love, like our Caramel Nut Drumsticks, chocolate-covered nut clusters – or pick out a gourmet chocolate gift basket that’s chock-full of tasty treats to savor. Your loved one deserves the best, so go ahead and give the good stuff from Chocolate Pizza Company.
