Cake, anyone?


Birthday preparations are underway at our house. We're gearing up for a full weekend of celebrations. B turns 30 tomorrow. Tomorrow! I wish I were confident enough to make him this cake, but perhaps I should stick with the traditional chocolate cake and ice cream.

Any special birthday traditions at your house?

That is a cool cake! I probably wouldn't attempt it either, I always fall back on a simple boxed cake mix. My mom's tradition was to have the house decorated for us when we woke up on the morning of our birthday.

There's a reason why I use bakery cakes... not because I don't like baking, but because my cakes never turn out as pretty as this one...I just can't figure out frosting!

Our tradition is that you get a whole week to be the birthday "brat" and get your choice on just about everything... thankfully it's only for a week!

30? You mean 29...again. That's my plan for when I turn 30. Actually I'm turning 27 on Saturday (May birthdays rock! all the cool people were born in may!) and I don't know WHAT we're going to do! But I do know my mom is sending me flowers---she does every year, and it's so special! Once she sent them to my work and I was both embarrassed and pleased...
