Something with strawberries, strawberry gel or gelatin, whipped cream, cake (angelfood, yellow, white.. who cares) and vanilla pudding. Maybe I will just make them all separately, throw them in a bowl and call it birthday cake!

I would probably go for angelfood cake (from scratch) with wild blueberries and homemade vanilla ice cream. I am not a sweets person, other than homemade ice cream and peach cream pie, so would opt for AF because that was what my grandma always made for my birthday cake.

My favorite is a white cake that you poke holes in with a wooden spoon handle then pour in red and green jello alternating holes. The cake is then refriderated and topped with cool whip. You can mix up the colors for dif occassions. The jello needs to almost setting up.

Others include a Princess cake,German choc., Dark italian style choc. with espresso icing.

When I make cakes at home, which is seldom, I never frost them. Just a plain yellow cake.

since they don't make it any longer, i would make a copy of entenmann's brownie crumb ring.

it's a yellow bundt cake with mocha/maple frosting, topped with finely crumbled brownies.

I would order myself this:

Dark Chocolate Orange: A sophisticated combination of dark chocolate and zesty orange make this cake sure to please. Dark chocolate cake filled with white chocolate orange mousse and frosted with chocolate ganache. White chocolate shavings top off this elegant dessert.

I'm with the devils' food & choc ganache, too, but...it could actually be an iced hatbox, so long as it says, "HAPPY EIGHTEENTH BIRTHDAY" on top...and means it.

Dream Dessert

Buon Giorno Mel.

Firstly, this is quite a lovely post ...

To kick off with, the Vet and I, Nathalia and her hubby and the 3 Boys, and then, Naia & her hubby with her two children; are all quite perfectionist in what we like and have pet peeves in what we dislike.

The Vet and Nathalia were both born in August, and are Leos.
Naia, my older daughter is a Libra.

All the rest of us are Sagittarians.

Thus, with this in mind, there are 5 grandchildren, 2 son in laws, and Myself who are born in December ...

1. The Vet is a tropical fruit fan; pineapple and mango his faves ... He loves Pineapple Upside Down Cake and Mango Cream Cheese Cake ...

2. Nathalia is a Death by Cacoa Woman ...
3. The 5 Kids are predominantly Devilīs Food and Black Out ...

4. Naia and I on the otherhand, do not have sweet teeth ... Sicilian Cannolli shall do the trick for us ... We taste test, however, 1 forkbite or two at most shall do the trick, and that is it. Cannolli are our fave dessert ...

5. Son in laws: they both love Strawberry shortcake with fresh strawberries ...

Have a nice wkend,
Ciao. Margi.
