Individual Birthday Cakes

22 May

Today is a special day.  Today is both my God Mother’s birthday as well as my Father’s.  What a coincidence, right?!  Well, not so much.  They are twins!

They say that twins are connected in a very special way.  Twins often get stuck in a matchy matchy situation and the lines of individuality can be blurry.  But I believe everyone should at least have their own birthday cake.

One way to ensure everyone enjoys their own treat, is to make cupcakes.  Cupcakes are so typical though.

So, I made individual lemon cakes with buttercream frosting.

I used lemon cake mix and baked it in a jelly roll pan.  Once it was finished and completely cooled, I used a biscuit cutter to cut out 24 rounds of cake.  Simply frost a layer of buttercream on top of one round and top it with another.  Finally decoratively frost the top with more frosting and add some festive sprinkles.

Happy Birthday Dad and Nina!!
