Default Birthday Cake -

Do you have a favorite or traditional kind of cake for your birthday? (or any other event?)

For me, it is a plain white angel food cake. My Mom or Grandma would make one for me from fresh eggs - of course, there were egg yolks left over - but I don't remember what they did with them.

The next best cake that my Mom would (rarely) make was poppy seed cake - with a custard filling and fluffy white (cooked) frosting.

Rhubarb cake is a current favorite - but it is not a "special event" cake.

The left-over yolks make wonderful noodles. Our entire family love 'em!
For T.Giving I will have 6 egg yolks make then cook in the broth an they will sit and eat them and there are never any left!

My birthday's in June and I always asked for strawberry shortcake. In the olden days, strawberries were only available in June.

I didn't like cake as a kid so my great aunt always made me lemon meringue pie for my birthday. When my kids came along and I started making birthday cakes for them I realized I didn't like cake because mom managed to make cakes as dry and tasteless the dessert Now my favorite cake is Boston Cream Pie.

My mom used to make a pound cake and cut it into several layers. She then made up some mocha whipped cream and used it to frost the layers and the whole cake. Yum!

My B'day was Sunday too! But I must say I have had lots of cake. My favorite is a mint chocolate chip. But my family likes hummingbird cake which I make at Thanksgiving.

For my birthday in July, I always make a cheesecake with fresh blackberries on top. Everyone else, (10 family members) orders a choc depression cake from me made with 100% whole wheat (bran and germ included). Must be made one or two days in advance so the bran can absorb moisture, and the cake turns out as moist as brownies.
