Even if you’re not a fan of getting older, birthday celebrations are something we can all get behind. Seriously, who doesn’t love birthday cake, bubbly and gifts? If you can’t wait for the holidays to get the celebrations started, there’s a birthday you can celebrate right now: Alexa is turning six on November 6. (Say "Alexa, happy birthday" to launch special features on your Amazon Echo or Alexa Device.) And for her golden birthday (when your age is the same as your birth date), Amazon is offering tons of Amazon Devices on sale.

If you’re an active subscriber to Food Network Kitchen, or have been thinking about giving it a try, a compatible Amazon Device can make taking classes so much easier. Using an Echo Show, Fire TV or Fire Tablet, you can go hands-free and use voice commands like “start,” “stop,” and “pause” to cook along with the class instructor at your own pace without touching a screen. These products are ideal if you’re a visual learner, especially if your phone screen is on the smaller side. You’ll be able to see what chefs truly mean when they say mince, dice or bake to golden brown.

Once you decide which device is right for you, you can get cooking by saying “Alexa, open Food Network Kitchen”. In honor of Alexa’s birthday sale, we recommend starting with some birthday celebration recipes. Start with a class on Do-It-All Cake Batter. This is a super-versatile batter that can be used as the base for so many cake recipes. You can flavor this batter four different ways, frost it how you choose — or, once the cake is cooled, you could get the kids involved and turn it into Cake Pops in this class. If cake isn’t your thing, we love Rainbow Confetti Marshmallow Popcorn Treats. They’re bright and colorful, and ultra kid-friendly.

No matter how you choose to celebrate, a sweet birthday treat can brighten your day — even if it’s not your special day. For even more celebration-worthy recipes, check out Food Network Kitchen.

Amazon customers can access a complimentary 1-year subscription to Food Network Kitchen Premium on their Fire TV, Fire tablet or Echo Show. A premium subscription lets you learn from the pros with subscriber-exclusive access to step-by-step tutorials, live classes with Food Network stars, commercial-free shows, and much more. To get started say “Alexa, Open Food Network Kitchen” or go to amazon.com/FoodNetworkKitchenOffer to learn more.
