The Birthday Cake 🎂 #strain Is Certainly Worth Celebrating
This particular strain goes by a few names: Birthday Cake Kush, Wedding Cake, or simply Birthday Cake.
No matter what name you call it by, this strain is remarkable enough to talk about. Carrying a very sweet aroma and a deep flavor that is unmissable. It’s an Indica-dominant hybrid that packs a serious punch.
Typically, a very high-potency strain (25% THC ++) that has the #terpenes to please the pallet of most cannabis connoisseurs. The batch that we are looking at today tested at 27.4% THC.
Let’s take a closer look at this marvelous #strain and I’ll share some of my thoughts (and of course, Daddy’s Donut 🍩 Rating).

Genetics of Birthday Cake 🎂
These are two seriously sweet tasting parents that were crossed to create what is, in my opinion, some of the most delicious cannabis available.
After trying some great #GSC crosses like the monster Garlic Cookies 🍪 I reviewed first here on Smoke.io., I knew I was in for a treat. Cherry Pie / Cherry Kush is one of my all-time favorites, so seeing it crossed with another crowd favorite like #GSC was all I needed to give this one a try.
Last week I was lucky enough to pickup 4 grams of Birthday Cake 🎂 for $52 at Euphoria Wellness here in Maryland. After sharing some thoughts on it, right here on smoke.io, I got a text from the dispensary: Come back in and grab an 1/8 for $40 - so I did! I loved these buds so much that I went back to capitalize on the sweet deal (pun intended).
Your Resistance To The Birthday Cake 🎂 Is Futile!
The taste of this strain mirrors the aroma. Unlike some strains that smell better than they taste - Birthday Cake offers both, an incredible scent and flavor. I would describe it as sweet like vanilla with fruity tones to it. I find that it has a high flavor profile that, even when combusted, it shines through. The flavor when vaporized is noteably better as it is with most strains. You can taste the notes on your tongue long after exhale and then this potent strain gets right to work.

A Closer Look at Birthday Cake
Dense structure to the bud with a thick coat of trichomes & purple hues that signal its parent traits
You can really see the varying parental traits in this batch. With GSC being a cross of Durban Poison (Sativa) + OG Kush (hybrid) and Cherry Pie being a cross between Durban Poison (Sativa) + Grandaddy Purps (Indica) = you can’t miss the qualities that Birthday Cake exhibits. The purple hues are a dead giveaway and the smell is sure to slap your senses.
🌞 or 🌙 Great for Day or Night Use
It’s a productive and uplifting effect that is simultaneously relaxing and calming. I find that I can use this strain during the day if used moderately and it’s also great for relaxing before bedtime. I didn’t find it to hinder my productivity during the day like some Indica-dominant strains. It’s flavor, alone, makes this an all day strain because once you taste it, it calls you back. I slept like a stone after a few good tokes of the Birthday Cake.
Daddy Daycare 2.0’s 🍩 DONUT RATING:
Donut rating is based entirely on made up criteria like all other ratings 😆
Certainly earns the Daddy Daycare 2.0 seal of approval. I absolutely love this strain to death. The flavor & potency of Birthday Cake 🎂 leaves literally nothing to be desired. Good Lawwwd, it’s some 🔥
