Make Birthday Celebrations Sweeter with Red Ribbon!

Have you ever noticed that during September, there seem to be a whole lot more people celebrating their birthdays?

I, for one, personally know *counts fingers* five (FIVE!!!) people who have celebrated and are still celebrating their birthdays this month. This includes my very own husband, one of my nieces and my sister-in-law, then add two friends.


Recently celebrated my niece’s birthday last weekend ❤

And you know what’s the best (and safest) gift to give when you have no idea what to give your family and friends?

A cake. A chocolate cake.

Chocolate Cake choices at the Red Ribbon Bakeshop.
And more cakes!

Trust me, everyone loves a good chocolate cake. I, for one, loooove chocolate cakes that are moist and soft and covered with yummy, yummy chocolate fudge icing.

And do you know what’s going to make that chocolate cake even better?

A heartfelt dedication and greeting.

There are many dedication cakes out there, but one of my favourites would be the Dedication Cake from Red Ribbon. Their chocolate cakes are satisfyingly moist with chocolate fudge icing having just the right amount of sweetness! It’s such a good companion to a nice cup of tea.

With a Red Ribbon Dedication Cake, you can go beyond the usual “Happy Birthday” greeting. You can greet your loved ones and give them a personal message that your loved one will truly appreciate.

My hubby’s birthday is still in two-weeks but he’s been feeling a little down these past few weeks. What a better way to cheer him up with good old fashion chocolate cake and inspiring words!

Red Ribbon Giveaway

When was the last time you wrote someone a special dedication for their birthday?

Well, guess what? Not only am I going to give you a chance to write a dedication for a loved one who’s celebrating their birthday soon, but I (along with Red Ribbon) am also giving you a chance to win an 8×8 Junior Dedication Cake worth P300 from Red Ribbon!

The reason why I chose this message is that it’s a message that I could relate to, haha! Plus, I like how she said that “she’s not that sweet and don’t say words often”. Just goes to show that a Red Ribbon cake can express so much more than a simple Happy Birthday 😉

  1. It’s for the special friend of mine way back then..

    Just hearing the sound of your voice can completely turn my day around. I’m still not sure how it happened, but all I know is you came to my life and changed everything. I’m not sure why you picked me, or how I could possibly deserve this. Enjoy your special day and thank you as always! Have a great blasts day dearie! 🙂

    To my Baby Gabe,

    To see you grow up right before my eyes for the past seven years is truly amazing…
    You’ve given me joy and happiness in everything you do.
    You’re my inspiration to work hard and provide for your needs.
    Even if I’m your mom and dad at the same time, don’t ever think that you lack the love that you need.
    Because i’m trying my best to provide you with all my love! I hope and pray that it will be enough for now…
    I love you and I wish you a Happy Happy Birthday! 😀

    What is your most unique birthday message to your loved one who will be celebrating his/her birthday soon?

    Hi Tita,
    Birthday ngayon ni Jay! Thank you po sa pagpapalaki sa kanya. Kung hindi, hindi namin siya makikilala XD Jay, para kay tita ito. Joke, Happy Birthday!
    From your Best (Bully)Friend, Fibs

  42. They say happiness can’t be measured. You proved them wrong
    They say love can’t be quantified. Then there was you
    On your special day, here’s a cake for you.
    The candles represent the light that you brought to my life
    And the icing tell how sweet of a person you are.
    Though this cake has a shape
    May it be a reminder that my love for you knows no bounds.

    Happy Birthday, Aiza!

  43. Mama Jo, your heart is as big as the earth, as bright as the sun, and as warm as the moon. Everyday we are thankful because of you. Happy birthday! We love you!

  44. mary anne ramirez September 23, 2014 — 8:57 pm

    What is your most unique birthday message to your loved one who will be celebrating his/her birthday soon?
    The most unique birthday message to my daughter was:(and we actually used RedRibbon cake)FYI – me and my daughter has the same birth date)
    Happy Bday nanay! Hindi bday ni Bianca!hahaha

    this was when she was about 8 or 9 yrs. old and she’s already 12 now but until now, we still share the fun memory of that time. This story is always talked about every year during our bday. So thank you RedRibbon for giving us the opportunity to write whatever we want to on our bday cakes hahaha :o)))

  45. Im glad to know its your birthday, Happy birthday to you!

  46. Red Ribbon is easily my favorite commercial cake shop. My top 3 are Black Forest, Ube, and Choco Mousse. Either of those would instantly cheer me up, so I’m happy that a lot of people gift Red Ribbon cakes. 🙂
