What Is Your Favorite Birthday Dessert?

I'm lucky enough to be celebrating the birthdays of two of my favorite guys this week and I can't stop planning birthday treats.  Today is my best friend Blake's birthday and tomorrow is Mac's birthday, so exciting! They are both huge fans of lemon desserts.  So when it comes to birthdays Mac loves a lemon tart or double chocolate cake and Blake likes "wedding cake" (mild lemon cake with vanilla buttercream frosting).  It took me at least a year of trial and error to figure out what exactly he meant by "wedding cake." 

Personally for my birthday I've always loved carrot cake with cream cheese frosting or chocolate cake with raspberry jam and chocolate ganache.  What about you, have a favorite cake or do you crave something completely different?

  2. YUM! I love all cake, but I have a sentimental sweet spot for red velvet (the first birthday cake John got me on my first trip to TX) and John loves yellow cake with chocolate frosting! Now if only we had a birthday coming up...

    1. that red velvet cake is so sweet! don't you just love birthday traditions

  3. For years, my mom has always made me a chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. Even though it's not my personal favorite anymore, I appreciate the tradition of it!
