Q: My 30th birthday is coming up this summer and I will be celebrating at a music festival with many of my favorite people. Since I will be camping that weekend, I know that a big fancy cake is out of the question, but I would like to bring some sort of birthday treat.

I can bring some things from home, but quite frankly, much of the cooler space will be devoted to canned craft beer. The town nearby has basic groceries, nothing fancy. What are some ideas for birthday treats that could be made at a campsite?
