I Wanna Be the Girl with the Most Cake

Someone just asked me what birthday cake I would make for myself.  And of course, my immediate reaction was “Let the people vote!”  Seriously, I don’t really know what my ideal birthday cake is.  There are just cakes I love to bake.  For example,there are cakes that I love to make for other people on their birthday:

Raspberry Mocha Cake

Cupcakes I made for my wedding:

And various kids’ cakes:

 But for my OWN birthday, I would like to bake something fun and tasty.  Or fancy and elegant.  Something challenging, but rewarding.  So, what cake do YOU all think I should bake?  Comment away!

    I am going to get this party rolling and suggest traditional southern coconut cake.

    Over on FB, you’ve got me craving carrot cake now. So I’m voting for that.

    Almond Italian Cream Cake (or perhaps an upside down upside down cake, hehe, would that make it a right side up cake?)

    The cake I would make for MYSELF is the same one I made for my nephew, Lukie, for his 12th – and it is now his favorite. I used RLB’s Cordon Rose Banana Cake but used pureed strawberries, instead. I had some chocolate buttercream from something else I had made, so I iced it with that, then topped it with fresh strawberries and poured a dark chocolate ganache over it. Here it is: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=1376256&id=609808115

    Brother Mike is making a chocolate cake for my birthday, which is next week, so for the first time in years I don’t have to make my own. He’s making lasagna, too. He makes great lasagna!
