Who loves a birthday party? Stop being shy back there, I know you do! Well today, myself plus 9 of my blogging buddies are throwing a birthday bash for one of our favorite people. I want everyone to wish Carla at Chocolate Moosey at big fat Happy Birthday!!!!
I love Carla so much, and I only wish we lived closer together so we can be BFFs in
real life, I mean in person, the interwebs are real yo! I can’t remember when I started following her blog, but in the last 6 or so months we kind of really connected. Lots of emails back and forth talking about life. It’s always nice to have some to chat with that feels the way you do and can understand this whole blogging life we’ve chosen! We will get to meet finally this July at the Food and Wine Conference and I can’t wait to give her a big hug!
However, I’m getting off topic here. I’m here to talk about cake. Specifically funfetti cake. One cannot celebrate a birthday without a gigantic slice of cake and in my opinion there is nothing more festive, nor screams “IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!” more than funfetti!
To honor Carla, the queen of all individual desserts, I made mine “individual.” Although I’m taking liberal use with the term. You totally could eat this cake alone, I wouldn’t judge, but it’s more of a two or three person cake. Hey, I tried.
My colleague called described eating this cake as little bites of sweetness or sunshine, errr I can’t remember the exact description now. Which ever it is, Carla, I hope you have a sweet sunny day today!
Big thanks to Jen at Juanita’s Cocina to throwing together this party! Make sure to check out everyone else is making for Carla today!
