Birthday cakes are the best. Is there anything that feels – or tastes – more celebratory and indulgent than a multilayered confection topped with a crown of flickering candles? For me, they also taste like love: every year since I can remember, my mom has taken requests to make whatever cake I want, and they’ve ranged from a summery ice cream cake to a classic italian cream… and one year, I even convinced her to make a huge trifle dish of banana pudding with candles stuck in the top. Oh, did I mention that today’s my birthday? The big 3-1! Kind of a boring one, but still… thought it was the perfect time to round-up the prettiest birthday cakes on the web that I’ve been pinning and filing away to make for friends’ upcoming fêtes. Because if there’s one day of the year that even the most health-conscious among us should eat dessert, it’s your birthday. Click through for the mouthwatering recipes…
