Do you have a family birthday cake recipe? We've used Fiona Cairns Family Chocolate Cake for our last few birthdays and I'm designating it our official celebration cake recipe - it's totally delicious! J made E's birthday cake this year and used butter cream icing as E wanted her cake to be white, with strawberries all around the sides. She was most specific about this, so I think she must have seen a picture of something similar. We put glitter on the top, obviously, and added paper bunting strung between wooden knitting needles.
