Happy Aries Season! The good news is that y’all share a sign with Lady Gaga, James Franco, and Robert Frost. The bad news is that you are probably celebrating in quarantine. So, while you won’t be able to go over to your local pâtisserie and pick up your favorite goods, here is Bwog presenting: What You Should Bake for Your Birthday Based on How Old You’re Turning. 

19: Congrats on being the most boring age possible! There isn’t too much that’s special about being 19. Legally, you’re already an adult, but you can’t partake in any alcoholic beverages, and you’re still a teen. However, there’s nothing wrong with being 19, and it’s still a classic.

Verdict: Good ol’ Chocolate Chip Muffins

20: Congrats on not being a pesky teenager! You have officially been alive for two whole decades. Do you feel old yet? 20 calls for sophistication, elegance, something with a certain je ne sais quoi.

Verdict: Crepes

21: Congrats on finally being able to go to Mels without the bouncer rolling his eyes! Naturally, you’re gonna bake up something with a bit of a kick to it. 

Verdict: Chocolate Rum Cake

22 and above: Congrats on being one step closer to having to deal with The Real World, without the comforts of college life. It’s messy… like caramel oozing everywhere.
