    Question What's Your Favorite Birthday Cake?
    Here's mine:

    Made by my lovely wife according to a recipe of a famous Viennese Sachertorte with one small substitute -- the middle layer of apricot jam was replaced by a cocoa'n'chocolate layer (she knows I love chocolate). Seriously yummy!!

    Okay, you need to stop that Geno. I can see the calories just flying through the monitor.

    That's a nice looking birthday cake indeed.

    I settle for whatever cake I get

    My relatives usually give me one of their favorite cakes.

    If I got my pick it would be chocolate cake with vanilla icing

    Nice looking cake. A chocolate-lover's delight, I'm sure.

    Anything with chocolate over chocolate works for me.

    You made me want cake now Geno. My birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks.

    Some things just have to be off the menu if you are on a diet though. Maybe one slice would be fine though.

    Or two...

    Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate, chocolate cake. Only I use butter in the cake instead of oil.

    I used to prefer one with rum-flavored frosting that came from the store, but they quit making it, and since a good cake from a store is a very rare thing, I just went back to making my own.

    Also, happy birthday!

    Don't diet on your birthday week! Take a diet break until the cake is gone. You can diet those calories back off later.

    Over the past 24 hours I have gained close to 3 lbs! Because of yesterday's snow the swimming pool was closed, and I didn't get to loose some of the calories gained. I sure hope they're open today... I must swim!

    Geno, it's a proven scientific fact that any foods consumed during one's birthday have zero calories. Relax, enjoy.

    I'm not big on cake, but I love ice cream! My favorite "cake" is the ice cream cake from DQ.

    *Gasp* You actually stepped on a SCALE so soon?

    No no no. You need to wait a week after eating good stuff before weighing yourself. That way all the stuff you ate at least has a chance to go away. And, you don't wreck your enjoyment of the cake!

    Sachertorte is wonderful, deep, dark and delicious but birthdays for me cal for light and airy so my answer would be strawberry shortcake.

    If I gain 5 pounds in the next week, it is Geno's fault.

    I am going to go eat cheesecake for a week! mmmm
