Friday Five Faves {#16} – Birthday Cake!

This is an exciting Friday Five Faves!

This weekend is both my birthday, and Noah’s birthday!

And you guys, there is a close runner-up to God and my family — cake.

I simply LOVE cake!

So today’s favorites are my favorites kinds of cake!

1.

Funfetti Cake

Seriously. I don’t even really care about the cuteness of the sprinkles. I just really like the flavor! :)

Plus, it’s cute.

Carrot Cake

My mom’s carrot cake is still my favorite carrot cake. I am always hopeful that somewhere will be able to match hers because then it would be readily available. But alas! No one has ever even come close.

I suppose it’s not a bad thing…

Cherry Cake

I’m not sure what it is about cherry cake, but I just love it. And I also really like cherry frosting. I could just lick cherry frosting off a spoon.

And that’s saying something, because for the most part, I don’t even really care about the frosting on cake.

Just. Cake.

Lemon Cake

The footnote on this kind of cake is that this does not apply to all lemon cake. Actually, I hate most lemon cake.

But my Grandma Kay makes this lemon cake that is to. die. for.

It doesn’t have frosting, just a glaze.

And she makes the cake from the lemons in her backyard.

My mouth is watering thinking about it…

I’m sorry, what was I saying? I got lost in lemon cake.

Cake! Right!

This picture is not of my grandma’s cake, so it won’t do it justice, but it’s the closest picture I could find to the deliciousness that is Grandma Kay’s lemon cake.

What about you? Do you have cake on your birthday? Do you have a favorite flavor?

I seriously want to hear about it. For reals.

Two of my favorites are on your list, your Mom's carrot cake, that she made for my birthday and I had to share, and grandma Kay's lemon cake

Of course, I'd add chocolate cherry cake, German chocolate with crushed heath bars sprinkled on top of frosting, and the list goes on.
