Birthday Cake

I know it’s not your birthday but I made you a birthday cake. I’m guessing I probably have never wished you a happy birthday because there are a few of you and I’m not exactly sure when all of your birthdays are. And even if we were friends on Facebook, I never check it because it’s filled with a bunch of people’s kids from high school and random political rants that make my eyes roll back very far into my head, so FB isn’t a reliable birthday reminder for me anymore. So….I figured I’d make you this cake and whenever your birthday shows up, you can just look at this post and know I’m wishing you a happy birthday!!

Birthday Cake

I love making people birthday cakes. If you follow me on snapchat (acozykitchen), you might’ve caught a glimpse of me making Josh’s birthday cake. I wanted to show step by step how I was putting it together. And then I made the biggest mistake: I left the room. I came back and Amelia had somehow managed to get herself up onto the counter and eat half of it! Yes, nearly half. It was actually very similar to the cake you see pictured: a yellow cake with chocolate frosting (luckily i hadn’t frosted it yet when she consumed a big chunk of it).

When Layered, I was immediately drawn to this classic. I figured I needed to give it another go, with Amelia far far away from it.

Look! I gotz my nails did.

You read fashion blogs, right? My new fashion blog obsession is Into the Gloss, which interviews top industry insider’s (editors, models, photographers) about their favorite beauty buys. My love for lotions, lip stains, blushes surpasses my adoration for clothes.

Fact: If I’m really bored, I go to Sephora and spend hours upon hours trying stuff on, and leaving with, like, one thing (and ten samples).  I like samples.  I have an issue with commitment.

One day soon, I want us all to be girls and talk about beauty products…I’ll make something like popsicles or something just as an excuse to discuss. Would you dig that?

On Into the Gloss there were a few women that mentioned getting stuff like Chanel “C’s,” daisies, and cross-bones airbrushed onto their nails.

I was kind of intrigued, and even more intrigued when I found out the place (CT Nails–ask for Peter) was within walking distance to my place. Easy is good.  I had no interest in the typical stuff, and thought it’d be cute/weird to get cupcakes!

And that’s what I did…with a cherry on top.

Next on the list to be airbrushed? Bacon, snow cones and maybe a stick of butter. Would that be strange? Yes. Awesome? Yes.
