In the Kitchen: Birthday Cake!


That yummy specimen above is my birthday cake! Tomorrow at 5am I turn 29! I embrace getting older and hope to never utter the classic phrase “I’m getting old” (okay maybe when I’m like 75). I like to refer to aging as maturing๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyway, back to the cake. In my house we don’t buy birthday cakes, I prefer to make them. The cake above is a vegan vanilla yogurt pound cake. I used soy vanilla yogurt, rice milk, and vegan margarine in place of the dairy. I’m going to throw some fresh fruit on top of each slice and dive in (for breakfast and after a veggie sushi dinner tomorrow)! For my daughter’s birthday last year I made her a cake in the form of a cupcake (sorry no pics before she devoured it), and a couple dozen regular cupcakes for guests. She liked it, evidence below:

For her birthday this year I am going to make a fondant cake . I’m hoping it will look something like this:

It will be a fun baking challenge for me. If you all are ever interested in any of the recipes for things that I make please ask. Are there any other Capricorns out there? If so, happy birthday! ๐Ÿ™‚
