Vegetarian Means Vegan, Right?

Actually vegetarians tend to differ from what Vegans consider themselves to be. The exact reasons for why, evade me at the moment.

I eat plenty of vegetables but also enjoy eggs so I think this means I may be a vegetarian but I am not a vegan because eggs are not on their menu. I need to watch my calories and weight.

Veganism, if I may, seems to be more like a religion than just a healthy eating regime. I think the term is applied to not only eggs but even to wearing things that may have once been alive, like leather.

I have no feelings on this one way or another and think our life choices are just that, our life choices.

Five Tips To Make Your Birthday Cake Remarkable

By Chris Lee

The focal point of any birthday party is normally the cake. There are things to keep in mind for planning the perfect birthday cake. There are many ways that you can accomplish this. If you are planning to buy your cake from a bakery, then be specific about what you want. Most cake decorators or delis will allow you to be as specific as needed to ensure that you get the cake that you want.

You should take into consideration who the cake is for. For instance, if you are buying a birthday cake for your grown son, then you do not want a little cowboy or tiny little racecars on it. The most remarkable birthday cakes are those that are suited to the birthday boy or girl's personality. This is also true if the cake is for you. Have a cake designed that will suit your own style and personality.

If you are a cake decorator, then you should keep a few things in mind as well. Be sure that you take the size of the cake into consideration. If you are creating the cake yourself, you will need to ensure that the size is right. You want to have a size large enough to feed guests, but small enough that it will not cave or fall if you are making a tiered cake. Be sure that the structure is perfect for the type of cake that you are making.

Be sure that you are following a specific theme when you are baking your own birthday cake. Look online and in party magazines if you are not sure of the theme that you want. Be certain that the theme is in keeping with the personality of the birthday boy or girl. Be sure also to match the theme of your cake to the party's theme. For instance, you certainly do not want a party with a Cinderella theme and a cake with the Transformers. In order to have a remarkable birthday cake, you should ensure that it follows the theme of your party.

Finally, choosing the perfect birthday cake for that special occasion only seems like and impossible task. No matter what your theme, you can find an amazing birthday cake that will be the hit of any party. Remember, the birthday cake is the most important aspect of many birthday parties, so choose wisely.
