Calling All Cakes!


I woke up this morning to a TON of snow!  It’s so lovely!!  So I slipped on my stylish new snow boots (over my pajamas) and headed out to take some pictures.  I was chic:

Not sure how I’m going to get my car out…

I’ve been a busy bee as of recent.  I have a presentation for my land use class tonight and my group poster is a DISASTER!  I hate group projects but mostly jerks who can’t work with others.

After that I will be working on my stats paper… When it comes to stats I sort of feel like this:

Anyway, It’ll get done!

Luckily my oats this morning were lovely!

On to cakes!

I need your help!

While part of my December Recipe Challenge was to hold off on baking sweets, my friend Liz’s birthday is today!  Happy Birthday Liz!

Isn't she cute?! Gentlemen, she's single!

So this weekend, my roommate and I are hosting an Ugly Sweater/Liz’s Birthday Party.  What kind of a birthday party would it be without the cake??

So if I’m only going to bake one thing then it better be good!  She said her favorite cake is anyone that she doesn’t have to bake.  So that leaves me with a blank slate! 

I need suggestions for an amazing birthday cake! Cupcakes are also appreciated!

Let’s make Liz’s birthday cake amazing!

Please leave me comments with cake suggestions/recipes!

Note: This does not have to be your original recipe, but please give authors due credit.  Also, this doesn’t have to be fancy from scratch.  Doctored cake mix is great!  Creativity is appreciated but simplicity is classic!

I’ll pick the top three by tomorrow and Liz will vote on which one I should make!  The winner will get something special sent to them 🙂

Have a great day!

    Ok so I haven’t made this cake every, but I always wanted to make it. I just think it looks really pretty and well its festive. Even though it is a birthday, you just can’t get around the fact that it is the christmas season. =)

    Here is the link to the website:

    You could aldo do the same thing but as a cupcake:

    p.s. – I personally like the cake more, but if you really like red velvet, you could even make a red velvet cake with the decor of the pepperment cake. Could be fun =)

    Good luck!

    Omg, I feel you on group projects. To make the last one I was in doubly worse – it was for a STATS CLASS! Yuck! I was so traumatized I wrote an article about it for the paper I write for, and for some reason following that things were all good…I think they got the message. 😉 Also the snow has officially hit Vermont as well…at some point today, I will have to dig out my vehicle.

    As for cakes, here’s my add – Cinnamon Babka. It’s seasonal and kind of like a big cinnamon bun! Here’s a recipe:

    Oooh, I’ll have to think about a cake.

    I never assign group projects in my classes, because I always find that when I do, INEVITABLY half of the group (or less) busts their asses, and the other half (or more) do nothing. It builds for a tense presentation, that’s for sure 🙂

    We’re snow boot twins!

    Good luck with everything that you have going on! Hummm I don’t have a good cake idea- but fun non cake ideas are fruits with cool whip if you don’t want anything too heavy.

    I am not a fan of group projects- i am too bossy.

    I love ugly sweater parties! We’ve never called it that, per say, but usually “Holiday Sweater” party is what we say. Anyway, the thrift store has perfect outfits this time of year! Sometimes I wonder what were we thinking when these were cool…
