As you already know if you’re a reader, my birthday is on Valentine’s Day. And as you obviously know just by being here, I love baking treats of all shapes and sizes. So I guess it should come as no surprise to anyone that this year, I got the pleasure of baking my own birthday cake!

This cake was actually supposed to be for celebrations of a few other birthdays in the family as well, but unfortunately due to illnesses I was the sole candle-blower-outer on my own cake (at least someone else put the candles in  and lit them!). Anyway, I was very happy with the end result.

It was a marble cake with strawberry buttercream (Neapolitan, anyone?) that I decorated with icing and heart-shaped confetti sprinkles. And not only did it look great, but it tasted great too! (Guess you’re just gonna have to take my word for that one.)

Mmm mmm yummy! It was a crowd-pleaser for sure, and most importantly, a me-pleaser (not to be selfish, but it was my birthday, after all!)

Have you ever baked yourself something for a special occasion, or do you have a favorite treat that someone else makes for you? Tell me about it in the comments!
