Birthday cake (post #71770, reply #1 of 4)

I'm not the baker of the group here so hopefully one of them will chime in with a T&T recipe for you.  I did manage to make the Irish Whiskey cake from the past December issue and it came out great, so I can only vouch for that successful recipe.  I also might mention that I made it in the 9" pan size and a smaller 6" version (remaining batter made a few cupcakes). 

I think that you need to start with what kind of cake does she like and go from there.  Here is a link to the another cake that I'm going to try, but do an FC search for some great cake recipes:  http://www.finecooking.com/recipes/chocolate-layer-cake-mocha-frosting.aspx

Hope this isn't too late but Cafe Latte's Turtle Cake is out of this world!! Just do a google search! Have made this many times and is my son's requested birthday cake! Enjoy anytime but your mom will love it.  I really don't like carmel but with this cake the more the better!
