Homemade Birthday Cake

I turned 19 last Thursday... so what better way to celebrate than by making my own birthday cake? When I was younger I made my parent's cakes-- my mom got a beautiful lemon chiffon, and my dad got everything from jelly rolls to a 10-hour white chocolate cake. I tended to make my own birthday cake out of a box, however, because I didn't want to go through all that fuss.

Anyways, my good friend from Singapore came over and we baked an awesome 4-egg cake straight out of the 1970's Joy of Cooking. Even though the cake was a little cold fashioned (and tasted oddly like cornbread without any frosting on it), it turned out lovely. We baked a big cake (9") and a little cake (6')... pictured below is the adorable 6" cake! It's frosted with homemade whipped cream.

Wasn't it a pretty cake? I'll talk about some of the stuff I got for my birthday on Thursday!
