The only thing I like about my own birthday is getting to eat whatever dessert I want.
Really, that’s better than gifts or parties.
Every year my mom asks me what I want for my birthday in terms of dessert, and I’m always debating between a few. (OK, more like 10.) There are so many great desserts out there, from the white chantilly cake from Larry’s Bakery to (what used to be my childhood favorite) Dream Cake from Liliha Bakery.
But growing up, I’ve always preferred my mom’s baked treats, particularly her chocolate chip bundt cake (which is great frozen, too) and her very airy lemon cheesecake made with Jell-O.
The question came up again this week and I’m about to celebrate my — gulp! — 38th birthday. So I came up with a list of five of my favorite (right now, anyway) desserts I’d like to indulge in tomorrow.
Mom, I hope you’re reading this!
Here they are, in no particular order:
Chocolate souffle, Roy's Restaurant
Got any to add to this list?
