Let Them Eat Cake!

  Today, I'm dreaming of birthday cakes. Why, you ask? Well, today is my 35th birthday. Each year, my mom & I share a birthday celebration since our birthdays are only a week apart. Some years we order a cake from a bakery. Some years my mom will bake one & some years I bake one. The celebration will be later this week, but this year I've offered to bring the cake, so I've been hunting around for some yummy inspiration.

  Here are some beauties I've found. As usual, Pinterest took the cake (so to speak)!

And now for the chocolatey options...

Heaven & Hell Cake (Layers of angel food cake, devil's food cake, & peanut butter mousse)

And now for the pièce de résistance...

Isn't this gorgeous?! I will not attempt to make this, but I wanted to share this beauty with you. 
(For those of you who don't know, I'm a huge fan of Paris, France & all things Eiffel Tower-ish.)

All these cakes look so delicious, I'm having a hard time choosing which one to make. 
What say you? What would be your first choice?

I'm feeling very blessed today. I am surrounded by wonderful friends & my precious family. 
I have so much to be thankful for.
Life is good.

Enjoy your day!


  1. Happy birthday, Steph! I'd opt for the cappuccino fudge cheesecake, though they all look good!
