Come Party With Me: My Birthday Party - Menu (The Cake)

As crazy as it may seem, I always make my own birthday cake. I know most people like it when someone else makes them a super special birthday cake, but I love making cakes so it's a pleasure to make my own. For the cocktail party I'm hosting, I want a classic cake with beautiful presentation. Right now, I've settled on this recipe for a golden cake with sour cream chocolate frosting, but you never know, I may decide I want to make a different one by the time the actual party comes around! To see how this gorgeous cake is made,

I've used this recipe to make cupcakes ... it's delicious, and I'm sure it's worth the work to make the gorgeous presentation shown in the picture. But if you don't mind taking the easy way out, the cupcakes are a quicker route to tastiness!

I find that it is much easier to halve cake layers using a piece of waxed plain dental floss instead of trying to get them even with a knife. Cake looks yummy!
