Inspirational birthday cakes

I wanted to do something special for my BBFs birthday this past Saturday, so I decided to get an inspirational cake. I feel like plain old "Happy birthday, [Friend's Name!] just doesn't cut it to make your special someone feel special enough. You should make your friend feel empowered not just for being born, but for becoming good at something after they became born.

Other ideas for inspirational cake messages include:
  • Happy birthday! You're really pretty
  • Happy birthday! You're an excellent driver
  • Happy birthday! Everyone is jealous it's your birthday
This year I chose "You're doing a good job" for my best friend. This inspirational message is sure to make any friend feel special because it implies ongoing success. What will you choose for your friend's next birthday?

PS - These were awarded with the cake (for doing a good job, of course):
