My boyfriend's birthday is in September, but we always celebrate in late August before we go off to school. This year I kept it simple with a small 8 inch cake. I made a vanilla cake with a chocolate middle, and butter icing. It was just he right amount of sweetness for a summer night!
What really made the cake was this cake topper I made. All I did was cut triangles from scrapbook paper, write "HAPPY", and tape it to string. I also then taped it onto dowels. Using glue might have looked better, but I couldn't find my glue gun (naturally). Either way, it's a reusable cake topper for any occasion!
How do you celebrate birthdays?
