Some people like cookie cakes, others prefer ice cream cakes for their birthdays, but have you ever tried lasagna birthday cake?

You may not have had the pleasure of taking a bite of one just yet, but you’re going to lose your mind when you try one of these delicately layered culinary creations. The Birthday Cake Lasagna, a recipe from “No-Bake Treats” by Julianne Bayer, is made with cake batter pudding combined with a cake batter whipped cream and cream cheese, and layered with Belgian waffle crisps.

The result is a colorful, layered cake that resembles our favorite Italian pasta dish. If you’re sick of the same old birthday dish, you might want to give the cake lasagna a try. The recipe from Bayer isn’t too complicated (for starters, the lack of back time certainly helps!), and if you can’t find Belgian waffle crisps, you can always use graham crackers instead.

If you’re digging the idea of an untraditional birthday cake, here are a few other unique ideas:
