The Big Cake Debate

My yearly dilemma has begun – what type of cake do I bake for my birthday? (yes, I bake my own birthday cake. I used to be sore about it but I’ve come to terms with it now. In fact, I love planning MY perfect cake, rather then what other people want). Last year, you’ll remember I baked a delicious creation of Sophie Dahl. And it was gorgeous, and just what I like in a birthday cake. Something rich with buttercream but light with fruity flavours (no chocolate cake for me thanks).  How gorgeous is the cake above? I love the idea of draping bunting around it. If you’ve been following me on Pinterest, you’ll see that I’ve been pinning a heck of a lot of yummy looking cakes in anticipation. But which to choose? I only have on cake to bake. How do I choose just one? Do I go with cake, cupcake or even roulade? Vanilla, Blueberry, Coffee or Caramel? As quandaries go, this is definitely the nice kind. I’m salivating at the thought of all these. Hmm. I’d better go get my pen and paper and start a pro/con list…

    Is it wrong that what I love most about the pictured cake is the cute stand and polka dotted table cloth? 🙂
