Re: What Was Your Favorite Birthday Cake Growing Up?

It was an icebox cake made with graham crackers spread with  cream whipped with Ghirardelli cocoa. 

I far as I know it was my grandmother's recipe. It's now four generations that love it for a birthday cake. Sometimes they choose something else but most of the time the family wants this.

@on the bay My DH is the same - he must have Pillsbury chocolate cake with Pillsbury vanilla frosting.  He likes me to decorate it with A LOT of colorful nonnonpareils.  It's his fave!

Ice cream cake!

 

Chocolate on the bottom, vanilla on the top, and that yummy crunchy chocolate stuff in the middle.

 

I still love it!

White cake with white frosting. One year I got a cake with a Barbie style doll in it and her dress was the cake. Ice cream cake is a favorite too.

Re: What Was Your Favorite Birthday Cake Growing Up?

I cant recall someone offering me birthday cakes when I was small.

 

At age 7, my mom sent me to a Swiss boarding shool.

At age 14, I came back to Addis Abeba and few weeks later my arrival, a coup d' etat formed and we had to flee the country with one suitcase each!

 

So no, I dont recall birthday parties and birthday cakes as child.
