My birthday is on Wednesday. I finally decided on a cake. It was one of the toughest decisions I have made in a long time.
I say that to emphasize the difficulty of the decision, not the lack of decisions I make on a regular basis.
First I considered Tiramisu cake. But, I had that last year. I have no qualms about being a repeat outfit offender. A repeat cake offender I will not be.
Tiramisu cake it was not. (It is really delicious though, I’ll have to give you the recipe sometime).
I next considered Goat Cheese Cheesecake. I firmly believe that everything is better with the addition of goat cheese.
But, Red Velvet Cheesecake was eaten just a few days ago for my sister’s birthday (yes, I said Red Velvet Cheesecake).
Cheesecake was out of the picture.
Strawberry-Lime Stuffed Cupcakes were next considered
Fresh and fruity, these were certainly in the running. In my book fruit > chocolate during the spring and summer. Don’t worry, I’ll give you my chocolate if you give me your fruit.
And your goat cheese. I like goat cheese.
The cupcakes look delicious, but something wasn’t quite right. I was getting somewhere with the strawberry idea though. You see, I actually don’t like cake that much(bashing chocolate and cake in one post, who do I think I am?). After way too much time on foodnetwork.com, I finally made my decision.
I decided on Frozen Strawberry Lemon-Basil Mousse which will be served in pie form.
It’s not your typical birthday cake.
I don’t consider myself your typical birthday girl.
I’ll let you know how it turns out.
What is the best birthday cake you’ve ever had? Do you even like cake? What’s the most difficult decision you’ve made recently? Repeat outfit offender or repeat cake offender, which is worse?
