Birthday Charcuterie Board

A birthday charcuterie board is a cute way to spice up a birthday party. With all of the bright colors, yummy treats, and fun decorations, it will be the hit of the party.
Birthday cake is good and everything, but I like to switch things up. Having a dessert charcuterie board is a new and exciting way to celebrate a birthday. They are especially fun to decorate according to the theme of the birthday party.

Notes

Pro Tip: Use candles with the number of how old the birthday person is turning!

How do you store leftovers?

It all depends on what birthday treats you choose to put on your birthday charcuterie board. Candies are easy to store. The gum balls, bubble yum tape, popcorn, suckers, and other candies are fine to leave as is. You will want to put plastic wrap over the board to keep it fresher, especially with the small cakes. You can take your time eating the candy (eat the cotton candy faster as it will get stale), but the small cakes should last about 4 days.
