When I was a kid, my Mom always asked us to tell her what kind of birthday cake we wanted. I was the boring one, always saying white with pink icing or chocolate with chocolate icing, etc. However, my sister ALWAYS wanted brownies! That was her favorite "birthday cake".

You can imagine how ahem interesting the 9 x 12 pan of brownies looked with birthday candles on them! But, we loved those brownies, and I have to say, my sister had good taste--and isn't it great to know EXACTLY what you want?

Hes terrible with everything else. lol He make a chocolate cake, and puts rolo candy pieces in it. When its close to done, she top the cake off with a few pieces of candy on top.

  19. German Chocolate!

  20. First off, Happy Anniversary! :)
    I never cared for cake that much, nor brownies for that matter. LOL But it's nice that you were allowed to choose what you wanted. My mom once asked what me and my twin wanted, we said a Dairy Queen ice cream cake ... what did we get, a regular cake because it was what my mom wanted.

    I do actually have A Stranger's Kiss, so if possible I'd love Love is the Drug. Thanks!!

    Thank you for the giveaway opportunity!


  21. Happy Anniversary to you & your hubby!
    Happy Birthday to Carrie Ann!
    When I was growing up, I always wanted my mom to make me peanut butter fudge for my birthday. I like cake but fudge is my favorite!
    Thank you for the great giveaways.

  27. Happy anniversary. I love a double fudge cake w/ fudg frosting, but your sister's idea of brownies sounds good too. As long as it's chocolate.

  28. Happy Anniversary! Congrats on your special day.

    My favorite birthday cake? I'm not a big cake eater. I like strawberry shortcake but I've never had it for my birthday. My colleagues at work know that I don't care for chocolate (to their horror!) so they got me a lemon cake for my last birthday. That was YUMMY.
