Birthday Cakes

I celebrated my birthday this weekend and as strange as it may seem to some, I made my own birthday cake.  I wanted my cake EXACTLY the way I wanted it!  Plus, it was nice to share another homemade treat with my friends.  A bunch of my girlfriends and I got manicures and martinis then went to have dinner at an Indian restaurant.  We had a great time and I felt extra special from all the love shown to me:)  Here are some more pics of the cake I made (Chocolate with Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream):
It was so moist!

While I was planning my own birthday celebration, I got a request to make 2 red velvet cakes for a sweet sixteen.  I stayed up all night making these and they came out great!

I love birthdays:)
