My Mom always knew how to do birthdays. Choose your own breakfast, lunch, dinner and cake. Presents immediately followed the singing and blowing out of candles. It was a spectacular day, indeed!
My very first birthday cake was angelfood. My second birthday? Devil’s food. Do you think my mother was trying to tell me something?
I don’t remember at what age I decided my favorite birthday cake was angel food topped with seven minute icing. Leave it to me to choose something requiring slaving over a stove, a double broiler and a beater. But bless her heart, my mom makes it for me every-single-year.
Do you have a favorite birthday cake? Or TWO favorite birthday cakes??
