I am making my own birthday cake for my party and while it should be the easiest thing in the world to come up with an idea for myself it hasn't been.... I am stuck.

Came up with a cake flavor at least
I want to do a strawberry cake with a sugar cookie between the layers and I plan to put a little almond in the cookie.
I like this idea but I am open to other suggections - just not chocolate becuase I am not into chocolate cake.

I can not decide whether or not to try the SMBC or not. I have been making cakes for over a year and never have made SMBC. I have always used wilton's ABC with real butter (not all shortening).
What do you think ABC or SMBC with this cake flavor...

I want a baking theme and I can do figures, fondant, gumpaste etc but have not thought of anything that really blows my mind. HELP PLEASE!

I would try Swiss M BC. I really get a lot of compliments on it. Also, since you are a baker what about a stove, mixer and all the cute things you could create to go with the theme? Good_luck and enjoy your birthday!

SMBC all the way! thumbs_up.gif

As for designs, I struggle with this all the time so I'm no help there.

Well, I'm not much help. I made a nice strawberry/vanilla mudcake for my bday 2009 and it was the most boring cake I have ever made, LOL! It was a 10 inch square from memory - with "Happy Birthday to Me" written on it.

Last year I did what I love the most - Black Forest Gateau. Yummy! But again, not a sculpted cake (too much like hard work!)
