A Banana Split Cake & Birthday Cake Ice Cream

Today's my B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y! Yaaay! I wanted to share my birthday cake with you (early...going out of town) :) I was back & forth as to whether or not I wanted a birthday cake this year. Of course last minute, I decided I wanted one. HaHaHa I called Haydel's Bakery and they said they would be happy to make one. Thank You So Much Haydel's! It's a chocolate cake with pink buttercream icing. It's one of their specialty birthday cakes and it's shaped like a banana split (this one is B155)! Ice cream is from Blue Bell and it's called birthday cake. So get this...I have a CAKE that looks like ICE CREAM and ICE CREAM called BIRTHDAY CAKE. HaHaHa I immediately thought of Willy Wonka..."Wait A Minute...Strike That...Reverse It." HaHaHa  The details of the cake are ah-mazing! Haydel's included a real straw & spoon! They had strawberry topping running down the side of the cake. It looks so REAL! This is the prettiest birthday cake I've ever had! I also want to give a huge shout out to my blog buddy Jo of White Roses and Coffee blog! Jo you surprised me!!! She sent me the cutest Coach cell phone case wristlet! It's the prettiest PINK! Jo, thank you so much and it totally matches my Coach purse I received last year for my birthday. I'm pairing it with that bag :). And Jo, that birthday card with the sparkly fork and slice of cake is too cute! Thanks doll! I love it! Hallmark makes the cutest cards. Okay, well I'm off to enjoy my birthday weekend (will still be responding to comments). You guys have a super fun one as well. Ohhh! Feeling Smitten sent me a box loaded with beauty goodies (some for me & some for you). They were so impressed with your comments, that they sent me some extra things for a lucky reader. So look for an International giveaway Monday :). xoxoBirthdayKisses&Hugsxoxo

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET KIM! May you have the best day and an better year! Your cake is one gorgeous pastel dream! Just looking at it is making me smile and drool at the same time lol.

You didn't have to explain to me about commenting late. I'm so appreciative that you always take the time to read/comment on my posts no matter when you do. I'm just glad you'll still be blogging even though you're not doing it every day for now. I'd miss your posts too much. Sometimes you just need to do what best for you and what fits in your schedule. I cut back to posting on M-W-F after I got sick and just stuck with it cause it's manageable and doesn't require me to be on the comp that often. So it's whatever works for you. I'll always support you how ever often you post my friend.

Have a safe trip and ENJOY your birthday weekend Kim!
