I'm brainstorming this weekend on the subject of birthday cakes. Wednesday is Matthew's 37th birthday and I need a delicious cake recipe, not too difficult or time consuming to make, but still fancy enough for a special occasion. I'm considering a chocolate stout cake from smitten kitchen, but I'm open to suggestions if anyone has any.
Here's some memorable birthday cakes from years past-
Flourless chocolate cake and the first birthday Matthew and I spent together as a couple.
Not sure what type of cake this was, but it was my cousin Tyler's birthday. I think it might just have been "sugar flavored". It was disgusting but he loved it. Note the sugar ants crawling up the side.
Caramel cheesecake for Sam's birthday.
Tiramisu cake for a friend's birthday. This cake was delicious but it took all day to make.
Chocolate and yellow cake for my 34th birthday.
And of course I have to throw in a cute picture of Ceci because she is one month old today! Happy birthday Ceci, you are the moon and the stars.
