Happy birthday! It's going to be another awesome year.

I absolutely love to make ice cream cake. My favorite is when I mix chocolate fudge with cherry chocolate chip ice creams, lots of cool whip and marshmallow cream frosting and wafers and fudge in between. Takes forever to make, disappears entirely too quickly.

I retweeted your message (@AwesomeAuror), I'm a follower of the blog, and my email address is

Thanks for giving US a present on YOUR birthday! How sweet. :)

gabrywrites said...

Happy birthday! I am not sure which book I would choose, but after finally narrowing it down, I am deciding between Personal Demons and Clockwork Angels.

And my favorite cake? Ice Cream Cake! Preferably mint or cookies and cream. Also, *pauses* cheesecake for a birthday cake, which I have yet to have, but I want to have it as a birthday cake, with chocolate syrup also.

gabrywrites said...

Yeah, and I forgot my email.

Happy early birthday! My favorite birthday cake flavor is lemon. I love lemon cake. =]


Reena Jacobs said...

Happy Birthday, Angelique!

Ice cream birthday cake is my favorite. I don't care the flavor as long as it has an ice cream center. One thing I love about ice cream cake is they don't put a lot of frosting on top.

Your birthday is almost here; nonetheless, Happy Early Birthday!

My favorite birthday cake flavor would be the Polish cake my mom makes for my birthdays. The cake is made out of poppy seeds, rum, and a decadent walnut butter cream filling/topping...with chopped walnuts sprinkled all over the top and sides. It is beyond fantastic.


kjovus said...

by 97 year old grannie told me that i look like I wouldn't turn down a piece of cake. She was right of course.

I like chocolate the best.

happy birthday


Png said...

I once tried this simple chocolate flavoured cake, just that this one is a special vegetarian cake. It doesn't contain any eggs, which made it so soft and chocolatey. it's like the softness of the sponge cake (maybe softer) and the rich chocolate flavour from the original chocolate birthday cake. Hoped you had a happy experience eating your own birthday cake. Why not post about it? Im not entering the contest, just wanna share that particular cake experince. Hopefully i'll get one, mine falls this month too! :) regards:Png

April said...

It's not a birthday cake flavor but I have it on my birthday sometimes, so: grasshopper pie :) If it has to be a cake flavor the red velvet.

First, happy birthday. Second, it really won't be (happy) if you don't have marble cake with chocolate frosting and strawberries on the side.
