Who knew September was SUCH a popular birthday month?! I guess I never thought about it until now, but I’ve been making cakes left and right! Last week was my best friend Mara’s birthday (you can check out Adam’s and my famous Bday video here), Adam’s brother’s very exciting 16th birthday was also last week, and this week I’m not only in the midst of writing a million posts (yep, I’m on a kick here so just let me do it), but I’m making yet another birthday Phillies Phanatic cake for Adam’s cousin’s birthday.
Whew! And I’m just getting started!
Mara’s birthday cake is going to be a super big surprise and I’m sure she’ll be reading this post (she better be:) so I can’t tell you exactly what it’s going to look like – yet anyway. I promise I will post pictures though.
There’s one thing I’m going to need your help on for her cake though. I have NO IDEA what flavor to make it! It will have vanilla buttercream frosting (so I can dye it and make it look pretty) but other than that, all I know is I don’t want to make carrot cake since I made that last year.
So, if you could PLEASE help me out and VOTE on what flavor birthday cake I should make Mara, that would be awesome! I also promise I will post the recipe when I’m done!

Okay.. now on to more excitement. So as I said above Adam’s brother, Brandon, had a very monumental birthday this past weekend – he turned 16!
I’d say watch out on the roads, but I think he’ll be a pretty good driver, with all that video game experience and all!
I surprised him by making a birthday cake that I knew he would remember and which went along with the “car” birthday theme. It was just a basic vanilla cake with vanilla butter cream frosting. Brandon joins us allergen free folks here with his allergy to dark chocolate (now that, I believe, is a BAD allergy haha)!
Hope you enjoyed images of the cake I made for Brandon! I’d love to hear your comments on it below!
P.S. If you haven’t yet, don’t forget to take Mara’s cake flavor survey above! I’ll be posting her cake and recipe in a few weeks!
