Is there any better way to show someone you love them on their birthday than with a crazy cake?

I think not!

Toni Dash, writing for Boulder Locavore, seems to agree. Her son turned 12 last month and is obsessed with Grumpy Cat, so she decided to make him the ultimate Grumpy Cat birthday cake.

What I love about this cake is that it's the perfect combination of realistic and fantastic. The recipe uses boxed cake mix, store-bought cookies and premade icing to decorate, which means that even if you don't have the time to make everything from scratch, you can still produce a cake that will thrill the birthday boy or girl. Sure, the decorating takes time, but at least you don't also have to worry about whipping up a bazillion colors of icing from scratch to do it!

You can even make it gluten free by picking up a GF cake mix — good news for any Grumpy Cat fans who are allergic to wheat.
