April 24th was my birthday, and I received two of the most wonderful cakes in the world! The first is from my mom:

This is a vegan lemon cake with a lemon curd filling and a lemon buttercream. This was the first vegan dish/dessert that my mom has ever made me...and I was so appreciative...but it was so terrible! It's ok. The whole family was laughing and I would have never wanted any other cake. The cake was extremely dense, the lemon curd didn't set, and the buttercream separated and was really runny. We kept dunking the dense cake in soupy lemon curd and I got a tummy ache from laughing and consuming so much sugar. I have the best mom in the whole world.

The second cake was made by Stephanie Schreuich - a strawberry cake with strawberry buttercream and chocolate the shape of a cupcake!! It was so so so fucking good. I had 3 pieces, ate a ton of candy from my pinata, had a ton of tofu dogs, and shot off a bunch of fireworks. It was the best birthday ever, but I've had a tummy ache for the last week from all the sugar and the laughing.
