  1. Congratulations on your 3 years. Just found you this AM… Added your post to my twitter Buffer, so it will be going out sometime today.
    Birthday cake….hmmm……….Something with chocolate. Chocolate cake made with coffee, then filled with raspberry freezer jam perhaps? And, a large cup of coffee to go with. What a fun visual to start my morning off with!

  2. Homemade white cake with a raspberry filling and buttercream frosting. OR a homemade hostess cupcake cake. Delicious!

  3. I’m gonna have to say red velvet cake. Not a typical birthday choice, but mmm, is it good!

  4. I shared on Twitter and Facebook too … ’cause the first step is admitting you have a problem … LOL

  5. I love fun shaped cakes for birthdays. A couple of years ago I made a giant chocolate cherry ripe mud cake in the shape of pac man for my husbands 30th. It was epic.

    Congrats on your 3 year anniversary.

  6. My fave cake? The one my mother used to make for my birthday. Plain homemade yellow cake with milk chocolate frosting….mmmmmmmmmmmmm! I ate half a sheet by myself one year.

  7. My family’s secret recipe* for carrot cake with the lemon cream cheese frosting, baked into cupcakes. So wonderful.

    *I’m sure it’s not secret at all, but there’s not much fun in presenting people your widely known and quite common carrot cake, is there?

  8. White cake preferably with a bit of almond extract thrown in with white icing also with a bit of almond extract.

  9. Cake…mmm….I love ALL cake, but I think my hands down favorite would have to be vanilla cake with raspberry filling and cream cheese frosting. Drool….

  10. Shared on both G+ and Facebook. Now to Twitter. (not sure how to link to a specific Twitter post, but this is my Rav name AND my Twitter name, if that helps!)

  11. I always make myself a cake with homemade caramel frosting. Sometimes I even share.

  12. I make a fab choc cake with a thick choc covering – my mum taught me how to make it when I was a kid.

    I make it for my kids, my godson & Christmas – definitely my favourite!

  13. Since I found out I can’t have gluten (or seafood or tree nuts) my taste in cake has changed. Before, I would go with something rich, like a chocolate cake with dark chocolate frosting. Since I don’t care for any of the gluten free chocolate cakes I have tried, I would now go with yellow cake with mini chocolate chips and butter cream frosting.

  14. Congrats on your 3rd anniversary. Fave Bday cake?? Ice Cream cake with chocolate and mint ice cream layers!

  15. Cake in it’s purest form – white cake with vanilla buttercream frosting – is my favorite food whether it’s my birthday or not!

  16. My favorite is chocolate rasberry!! And i am so happy you are still in business, most things i make are out of your yarnz, i get so many compliments on them!

  17. My favorite kind of cake is red velvet! It’s so delicious! And sometimes, instead of creamcheese frosting, I use vanilla, and it makes it that much sweeter! For some color, I will add red sparkle sugar decorations! So it’s not only tasty, but pretty, too!
    This contest is awesome!

  18. My mum makes the most wonderful checkerboard cake. I LOVE it. It’s white cake and devil’s food cake spliced together to make a checked pattern when you cut into it.

  19. Wow! Congratulations on 3 years!

    My favorite cake? That would probably have to be my homemade fudgy chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache icing and rasperry filling. But, I’d also be just as happy with my peanut butter pie with lots of extra homemade chocolate sauce. Are we sensing a chocolate theme here? lol

  20. Chocolate cake with Cookies and Cream ice cream filling, whipped cream frosting, chocolate shavings and cookie bits on top!!! Yummmmmm πŸ™‚

  21. Chrystee…I have no idea why I didn’t know about your blog before, lol. I’ll be stalking you from now on πŸ˜‰
    Now, I love yellow cake with buttercream frosting. Simple and tasty

  22. I actually don’t like cake, so my mom makes me birthday pie! Different, but delicious!
    Congrats on 3 years!!

  23. Would it be a cheat if I listed 2? Well they remind me of my mother (sadly departed), who made made both for me over the years, and both evoke really powerful memories.
    1. Walnut cake in three layers with a buttercream filling, but with a royal icing
    2. Fat free sponge in 3 layers with a creme de marron glace (glace chestnut puree) filling and a chocolate coating – but the coating was almost savoury and the sponge not at all sweet, all set off by the chestnut puree – oh yummy.
    Both cakes have elements of the sweet with the not so sweet.

  24. Congratulations on your 3rd birthday!
    My fav kind of birthday cake is one I didn’t have to buy for my self, showing that some one thought of me, best one was when my friends surprised me with a cake at a picnic in the park, love em!
    Flavour wise tho I’m very partial to chocolate fudge cake. And cream.

    (also shared on twitter under the name of cheekyimp!)

  25. Homemade Strawberry cake from my Great Granny’s recipe. I’ve had that ever since I can remember and it is so good!

  26. Happy 3rd BDay!
    Cake would have to be carrot (made w. 3 -yes 3- cups of carrots) and cream cheese frosting. The bomb.
    Love your yarn. The colors knit up so nicely and my soon to be socks are going to be dying to get on my feet!

  27. Congrats on 3 years! I’m not a big cake eater what with being vegan, but my daughter’s favorite is red velvet cake & I’ve learned to make it quite well over the years!

  28. omg happy birthday play at life!!!! my favorite cake is pineapple upside down cake.

  29. Happy Third Birthday! Keep making beautiful yarns, we love them!

    My favorite birthday cake would have to be red velvet. I adore butter cream icing!

  30. Yah! Go you. My favorite birthday cake is this Peanut Butter Pie my grandmother would always make me by request for my birthday every year. It was light and fluffy with a pretzel crust plus a chocolate drizzle over the top. The pie/cake was the best part of my birthday celebration!

  31. Congrats on 3 years!
    I love Baskin Robbin ice cream cake with chocolate cake and world class chocolate ice cream AND fudge for the designs….mmm

  32. I love angel food cake with strawberry for my birthday I like a simple and sweet cake

    Gz on 3 years πŸ™‚

  33. Yeah, 3rd Anniversary!

    My favorite cake flavor is chocolate all the way. My favorite anything is chocolate, actually.

    Chocolate with chocolate frosting. <3

  34. First of all I just started the Bee Keepers Quilt and love the bag:) My birthday is in a few weeks as is my daughters. My daughter always requests home made apple pie and I love vanilla cake with vanilla frosting or a Tres Leches cake!

  35. Congratulations on 3 years! Devil’s Food with chocolate fudge frosting, chocolate ganache between layers, and nonpareils on top. With champagne of course!

  36. I’m sort of a plain jane kinda girl. I like yellow cake with lots of chocolate frosting. I eat the cake first and then eat the frosting at the end. Yummy!

  37. Since today is my birthday, I’d have to go with the amazing amaretto cake my husband made for me last night. It’s topped with sliced almonds and an apricot glaze. NOM!!!

  38. Hands down, nothing in this world beats a proper German Chocolate Cake. It’s just too bad that it is so hard to find a good one. I can’t be trusted to make it myself because I will eat all the frosting before it the cake is even out of the oven.

  39. My favorite cake….chocolate chip zucchini cake. An old favorite from my childhood. So good!

  40. My favorite kind of birthday cake was one I made for my husband in 2010. Two layer yellow cake baked with pineapple bits, soaked in pineapple vodka for two days, and frosted with pineapple vodka blended in buttercream.

  41. My mom used to make Betty Crocker yellow cake from a box & frost it with Betty Crocker chocolate frosting from a tub. Not gourmet or anything, but it’s a taste of my childhood and is comfort food. I can’t eat it anymore (lactose intolerant), but it’s a good memory.

  42. Hiya!

    My favorite type of birthday cake is anything CHOCOLATE. I especially adore the Chocolate Ribbon Cake my mom used to make for me when I was a kid. Chocolate cake with a layer of cream cheese filling and chocolate icing!

  43. Happy Anniversary!! My favorite b-day cake is chocolate cherry like my grandma used to make and then my dad made when she wasn’t able to. It had been a few years since I was anywhere where my dad could make me cake for my birthday, but this year he sent me the recipe and I made it for myself…it came out lop sided, but tasted delicious.

    PS…I also posted the link on facebook.

  44. LEMON MERINGUE PIE……And the your yarn that I have has a delicious yellow like the pie.

  45. I also posted on Facebook which is great as it has given my friends a chance to win as well!

  46. Congratulations on 3 years!

    My favourite birthday cake is chocolate-y goodness. I normally try a new recipe every year πŸ™‚ (this year I’m thinking about a chocolate layer cake with caramel icing. yum!)

  47. I have always loved yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Havent had it in AGES though. Happy Anniversary!
