Yesterday was my birthday, and I made my own birthday cake. Some seem to think that’s wrong, because on your birthday you should not do the work. But let me just tell you… making your own birthday cake is actually awesome.
Obviously if you hate making cakes, it’s not awesome. But if you like baking, you should consider making your own birthday cake because…
You can make it as ridiculous as you want. I wanted a tall cake, so I decided 4 layers was essential. Let’s be honest, 4 layers is really unnecessary, but hey, it’s my birthday. 4 layer cake it is!
It will be exactly what you want. I love lemon. 8 lemons went into my cake with lemon cream filling and raspberry whipped cream. I’m not sure who else would take the time to do that if not me.
If you mess it up, it’s ok. It’s your cake. No one can hate you because it’s your birthday. My cake was slightly crooked. Eh! I’ll survive.
Your birthday is a pretty darn good reason to make a cake, and it’s fun!
It’s basically a gift to yourself. You’re awesome. Celebrate you with cake!
You won’t be disappointed, because you know exactly what to expect.
So if you’re birthday is coming up. Consider making your own birthday cake. I promise, it’s more awesome than it seems.
Of course, if you make a cake for yourself, don’t eat the whole thing yourself. Make sure people sing to you…
then slice it up and share with the world!
Thanks for everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday and Happy Birthday to everyone celebrating their birthday as well!
What’s your ideal birthday cake?

You’ve inspired me! I’m going to be a whopping 30 + 50% in 5 days. The cakes here look delicious and inspiring. I would also do a lemon/raspberry, if my daughter weren’t home from college. (Beware, those years fly by!) Happy Birthday, belatedly! Yay, Leos!
