My awesome birthday and cake

8.9.11 - 10:00

Its been a while since my birthday. A few months actually, but I really wanted to write about it because everyone made it such a special occasion for me!

Let me give you a little back story. I had a big birthday this year. Okay, I was 30. As you know we are getting married this year so I didn't want to make a big thing about it as all my family would be coming over later in the year the wedding anyway. My folks however, got together with Marc and arranged a surprise party for me. Yep, a real surprise birthday party. I had no idea. I nearly cried when I saw everyone there, I didn't know what to say.

Marc also made me a cake. Remember some of the cakes I've made for him? Turns out he has a talent for baking, himself! Check out his awesome and huge 'cupcake'. I've seen people use this mould before online, but he even used chocolate to make a cupcake 'case'. There was cake inside it too. Very impressive for someone who has never made a cake beyond rice crispy buns.

So I'd like to say another big thank you to all my friends and family for making my birthday amazing.


  1. Wow, happy belated birthday! Wedding or no, you deserve a celebration. I am really excited about seeing your wedding dress and stuff!

  2. Oh wow, I really need to dig out my Giant Cupcake mold and make one of those. That looks fantastic!

  3. It's a lovely cake :O

    Congrats for you belated b-day and for the maker of this wonderful piece! ^^
