A few days ago, Geraldine asked the kitchn’s readers to share all the little things that make them happy and they delivered. There was one particular comment that stuck with me because it was all about a birthday cake.
The person who left it said that she bakes a cake every single year for her own birthday and shares it with anyone who happens to come by. As much as it doesn’t sound like a treat to most, somehow in her own eyes, seeing the smiles on her friends' faces when they taste her creation makes for the perfect birthday treat.
So since my birthday is little over a week away, I’ve been thinking about cakes and I really like the idea of transforming my last year's plan into a tradition of treating myself and all my loved ones to a home-baked cake...
What do you think? Do you bake a birthday cake for your own birthday or do you prefer to receive a cake instead? Do tell!
P.S: Drake on cake still makes me giggle - every single time:)
P.P.S: Did you know that there is a scientific way to cut a cake? It's SO cool!
