My whole family (all five of us humans plus our golden retriever) had a summer birthday, so we went from cake to cake to cake.
There were ice cream cakes, failed homemade red-velvet cakes (we forgot the baking soda, hence the ice cream cake), make-up-for-it triple-layer-with-peach-filling by fancy decorator cakes, ridiculously good strawberry shortcake in New Jersey, chocolate cakes, carrot cakes, fruit-custard-tarts-masquerading-as-cakes cakes, and I suppose a cupcake or two for good measure.
|My summer birthday triple-layer cake was frosted like this one.|
But wait! My very favourite cake of all time was served some four decades ago. Purchased at Enterprise Bakery in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island,this special cake marked Miss Antoinette (err--Miss C's) first birthday. And the photo (far above) is even all blue and pink pastel.

A good cup of Tim Hortons' coffee to top it off? What's that you say? *Who* bought Tim?
