birthday rewind

Monday, January 17, 2011
This past weekend, a few friends of mine gathered at the Battery Park Wine Bar to celebrate my impending birthday - I'm turning the big 2-8 this week. Hooray!

Somehow not one picture was snapped. I had not one but two Flips, a camera and the iPhone and I managed to take nothing to document the evening. But let's talk about what was missing - the cake.

I love cake. Cupcakes, mini cakes or a slice of cake, you name it, I love all things cake. As I looked through my photos of past birthdays, you can see my love of cake from a very young age.

Clearly, I'm loving some cake here

On my birthdays, my mom created a monster and let me order not one but two cakes, depending if I had just a family or friends party that year. My mom says I took picking a cake very seriously, so seriously, that I often picked the same theme for a few years.

Not only is the cake She-Ra, but I'm playing with one too

She-Ra two years in a row - check out those bangs

The next few years is when I started getting a little more creative with my cakes. I switched to my love of fairy tales and went with unicorns, a natural switch of course. After all, She-Ra did ride on a unicorn of sorts.

My brother creeping in on my unicorn cake - don't lay a finger on it, Greg.

I heart pink unicorns and crimped hair.

While I didn't order a cake this year, I would like to take this opportunity to request a few red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting from the White Flower Cake Shoppe. (BF - that's the shop inside of La Place that I always talk about. Mapquest it if needed.)

When it comes to your birthday, are you a cake or ice cream person?

What about ice cream cake?? :)

I'm with Alana- ICE CREAM CAKE. Yum.

Happy Birthday! Only a few weeks from now I'll be turning 28 too. I'm thinking that it's going to be a good year. :)

Happy birthday girl. When I see you in April, we will eat cake in Nola.

I'm a cake girl 100%. Chocolate cake, carrot cake, white cake, doesn't really matter - I love it all.
Happy Early Birthday!

Cake! No birthday is complete without one. This past year, I had a cupcake cake :) Happy birthday!

Ooooh I'm turning 28 this year as well! And I'm more of an Ice Cream Cake person- teh Carvel kind with the lil crunshies...mmmm! Though I would probably love it more if it was adorned with unicorns and/or rainbows!

Also, I would like to pass on the 'Versatile Blogger' award to you. You have an awesome blog and I feel you are very worthy of this award. Details of what to do are on my blog...Congrats!

A little bit of both. Either will satisfy my major sweet tooth! But you throw in the red velvet... done deal. :)

I like ice cream cake or cupcakes. Also, how cool was your unicorn, cake? Jealous.
