The Best Birthday Cake


This is my birthday cake made by my brother Phil. I requested it as this is the best cake ever. Note the cake is sitting on the vintage music box that plays Happy Birthday.

This cake is a Dorie Greenspan recipe. It is white cake with almond flavoring, raspberry filling and buttercream frosting with coconut.

It is moist, flavorful and delicious. I took all the leftovers home! I shouldn't have but's my birthday.



  1. Happy Birthday. I hope you had a great day. That cake looks simply amazing. I must try that.

  2. YUM! Looks wonderful . . . quite the birthday you have had. Happy 60th!

  3. That cakes looks very yummy!!!!!!
