Is your birthday in July? Mine is, and so are three out of the seven other gals in my Quilt group. My little brother has a July birthday, too, and my cousin Kay is just five days older than me, my boss just three days, I know at least six more friends and relatives with birthdays this month…
Last night I made a cake for our Quilt group party tonight, utilizing July’s abundance of fresh berries. The card is a 5″ x 7″ index card with stitched fabric letters, “happy” and “birthday” written in red and blue Sharpie, and four candles holding it in place, one for each of us with a July birthday.
Want the recipe? Here you go…
This can be made as a layer cake, spreading pudding topping and berries between each layer. I have to travel with it this evening, so I used a 9″ x 13″ pan with a cover instead.
Stay tuned, next week you might just get lucky with a birthday giveaway!
My hubby is giving me a Very strange look…. is it becuase I'm licking my screen? LOL that cake looks and sounds absolutely YUM!
My birthday is in July too, and I grew up with 2 friends who were born on the same day. It's a fun month to celebrate, though! Thanks for the recipe, I'll have to try it!
Nice recipe, to be saved for baking on a day the air-conditioner isn't needed. Sorry I don't fit into your July birthdays crowd. Happy birthday to you, though!
This looks quite tasty! I love these kinds of fruity desserts in summer cuz they don't feel so heavy. Happy birthday to all the July people out there!
Awesome piecing D!! I've been trying to work on my Gram's “Grandmother's Flower Garden” quilt and just can't seem to get the hand piecing right – maybe a quick lesson from my mentor?! The cake is awesome too! I got a little something for you for your B-day – and NO it's not the B-Day gift from 3 years ago you're still waiting for 🙂
