What to Bake Now: Birthday Cakes!

It’s my birthday, and I’ve got birthday cakes on the brain!  Everybody’s got their own idea about what makes a cake a birthday cake, but first and foremost, it has to be homemade.  Here are some of my favorite birthday cake recipes to celebrate that special day, homestyle!

…let’s see, for me, a birthday cake absolutely has to have layers, at least two.  But it shouldn’t be too fancy, it should look homemade because the best cakes are the ones we pull out of our own ovens.  My mom always made chocolate (Duncan Hines) with her own vanilla buttercream, and it sat on a dinner plate on the counter looking like a million bucks.

So don’t rely on the big box stores to get your supplies ~ check out some of my favorite homespun ways to keep it simple, and keep it in-house on your big day…
