Can we all take a moment of silence for the passing of my twenties and the entrance into my thirties?
Just kidding, let’s party…it’s my birthday!! Today I turn thirty and I actually am pretty dang excited about it. From what I hear, the thirites are awesome.
I mean, the years of your twenties are kind of weird, right? Like you’re still in college for a few of those years and then you’re just trying to figure your crap out. What am I going to do with my life? Why do I have to do adult things? Who am I going to marry? Blah blah blah.
But in your thirites, I feel like a lot of that stuff is figured out (okay I still don’t know what I’m doing with my life…), you have more perspective, and you just get to enjoy that thing called LIFE.
I wish that I could sit down with each and every one of you and have a slice of my birthday cake and tell you how much it means to me that you read this little ‘ol blog of mine. It truly is one of my biggest passions and I feel so lucky that I get to do it.
While I debated about what kind of cake to make for longer than I care to admit, I ended up going with a classic birthday cake – the funfetti cake! I love all cakes, but on my birthday I really just crave a good white cake. With sprinkles, of course.
I adapted this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction and it turned out SO perfect. I changed up the amount of flour, and added almond extract to it which I absolutely love.
There are a few more steps than a from-the-box funfetti cake but I think it turned out way better and so worth the extra time. Plus when here’s a birthday involved, some extra time and love is always worth it!
