The (Pink) Whiteout Cake

I’m not saying another year has come and gone, but this cake ain’t for no one.

This tic mark represents the year I officially turn ‘old’ according to my boyfriend, and that I have to start revising previous years for fear of the trade them in, trade them up policy. It’s ok, you should hear what I told him I’m trading him in and up for. ;)

If I have to revisit the same age again and again, I’d be ok with that. This last year was a great one. It was the first time in a long time I felt solid on my feet again. Strong and able to take on new challenges. Happy, the pit of your stomach happy. And healthy. Seriously, mountain biking. You have no idea how crazy a year ago me thinks that is. That confidence that comes with time and experience is there and I like it. Oh, and dresses. I bought a ton of dresses this year – AND I wore them. Movin’ on up, people!

The pets are good, the family is good, there is a roof over my head and the bills are paid. I can’t really see it getting much better then that.

Another great thing about settling into your adult years and being your own person – you can have cake for breakfast. And I just did.



 (Can you find the 7 differences?)





  1. Stop – you’re not old – you look fantastic!! Great cake to celebrate!!

  2. Yummy and pretty way to celebrate!

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Such a beautiful celebratory cake. Have a delicious day!

  5. Old people are way cool.

    So is this cake.

  6. Yay! Sounds like you’ve had a great year! Gimme a slice of that cake so I can have a happy decade ahead! ;)

  7. I wholeheartedly approve of cake for breakfast. It always reminds me of that old Bill Cosby routine where the Coz points out that it’s full of good breakfasty stuff like milk and eggs and grains. See? Practically health food.
    (And if you’re officially old, then I guess that makes me officially almost ancient. Gulp.)

  8. Though I love pie more, if I had to describe my relationship to cake, it would be something akin to the Hyperbole and a Half sketch:

    Anyway, a pink whiteout cake sounds like a lovely way to celebrate! Hope you have a fantastic birthday, Kita! :]

  9. What a great way to celebrate – cake for breakfast! And I love how you put the sprinkles on this. Very neat. And the seven differences in the right photo compared to the left are: Forks in focus, background fabric in focus, cake sprinkles on stand in focus, shine on cake stand in focus, while the cake on the plate with the rock candy is not in focus. Also there’s a little rock candy stick-knob peeking out over the plate with the forks, and the plates peeking out on the right side are showing less than in the left photo. Am I right?

  10. Happy birthday lady! Cake for breakfast is the perfect way to celebrate in my opinion! Especially pink cake. So pretty!

  11. Happy birthday friend! And this cake is absolutely stunning! It’s the perfect way to celebrate, especially since you had it for breakfast!

  12. I’m a sucker for white chocolate and cake for breakfast is exactly how it should be on a special day…Happy birthday!!

  13. My 2 year old is standing behind me shouting “SPRINKLE CAKE SPRINKLE CAKE SPRINKLE CAAAAAAAAKE!”

    Happy birthday lady! I hope it was fabulous!

  14. Good for you! Happy birthday!! Hope you enjoyed your beautiful cake!

  15. Happy Birthday!
