      I have a killer Cookies & Cream Cake recipe I made for my mom’s birthday last year. And now I’m craving. 🙂

    • Julie says

      Thank you Kim!! German Chocolate is so good. I was anti-coconut for a long time, but I’ve learned my lesson through this cake.

    My all-time favorite birthday cake is Pink Lemonade Cake! My mom always made this cake especially for me, even though my sister and I have the same birthday. She always made sure we each got our own favorite flavor (no, we’re not twins, we’re 4 years a part.) I wrote about it in my post here It’s cool, refreshing, easy to make, delicious and PINK! Mom is gone now but every once in a while my husband will use her re cipe and make this cake for my birthday. It’s like having her here! Happy Birthday! Hugs, Leena

    • Julie says

      That’s so awesome your mom made you both feel special for your shared birthday. What all is in this cake you speak of?

  2. Kristen M says

    Happy Birthday! I usually go for chocolate but I love just about any flavor. As a 37 year old, I’d like to add that the 30’s have been the best years of my life. Here’s to a new decade!

  3. says

    Happy Birthday, Julie!!!! I’m not much of a frosting person, so I usually have chocolate cheesecake cupcakes or my grandma’s sheet cake.

    • Julie says

      I’m a sucker for just plain yellow cake, no frosting, and my mom usually makes me cheesecake. So I’m right there with you. 🙂

  4. says

    Happy Birthday Julie! My favorite cake is a yellow cake mix with dark chocolate canned frosting and sprinkles… just something about that combo is very good! Though I will eat any cake put in front of me! Enjoy your day, Deb

    Happy Birthday! My 40th is coming soon. My favorite birthday cake flavor is white cake with a good bit of almond extract. I like marshmallow frosting (my grandparents called it 7-minute frosting) on top.

  6. says

    Happy Birthday, Julie!! July is a great month for birthdays! Mine is this week and I’m doing a similar giveaway too! Hope you have a Happy, Happy 30th! This weekend I’ll be digging into my favorite cake, CHOCOLATE!!
    Laurie 🙂

  7. Anne says

    Happy birthday! My 30s were the best time of my life, and I wish the same for you.

    My favorite birthday cake is carrot cake. Sorry I don’t have a link for you, but carrot cake recipes abound.

  8. Tina says

    My favorite flavor is probably butter cake with vanilla frosting. I do love a good spice cake with cream cheese frosting too. Happy Birthday!!

  9. says

    Julie I hope your birthday was fantastic! Thanks for having such an awesome blog and for coho sting GYCO, I love participating! May 30 be the best year yet 🙂

  10. Jenny Scheldberg says

    Happy Birthday!!! Yay for summer bdays! I am a cake fiend and I *think* my favorite cake is German Chocolate with tons of coconut and caramel. And ice cream with bday cake is a MUST. Cool giveaway loot!

    • Julie says

      Super fun cake. Lots of butter makes things better…especially cake. I mean seriously. I may have gone a little pin happy on your cupcakes and shared them on Cupcake Project’s pin boards. 🙂

  11. Amber says

    I’m a sucker for German Chocolate on my birthday. By the way, I turned 30 in March! Is it sad that I sometimes STILL think I’m 29?

  12. Malana says

    I love cake! All kinds of cake 🙂 I don’t think you should limit yourself to 1 cake on your birthday… I have to have the traditional yellow cake with white icing and something with loads of flavor… any kind of cheese cake, carrot cake, mounds cake, Hershey’s Black Magic cake…. Now I will be craving cake all day 🙂 Thank you for the giveaway! Happy Late Birthday!

  13. says

    My favorite cake is straight up confetti cake with Rainbow chip icing……………and No, I’m not a toddler-I’ll be turning 30 in 6 months! 🙂 There is just something about rainbow chip icing!

  14. Marilyn B. says

    Happy Birthday! My favorite flavor of birthday cake is carrot cake with cream cheese icing! Yum!

    • Julie says

      Total yay for July birthdays!! I have 6 family birthdays this month, and like 5 friends the same week as me. It’s a crazy party month. 🙂 Happy Birthday Claire!!!

    Tiramisu (if I feel like having adult flavours) or cookies and cream (if I want to be a kid again :D)
