I haven't had a birthday cake (or celebration at all) in over 20 years thanks to being born right on top of the x-mas holiday. I was feeling crumby about it this year & decided to do something special. What better way to celebrate than with a decadent red velvet cake Cheesy

The finished cake


It's smothered in the most amazing cream cheese frosting on the face of the planet. Seriously this stuff is heavenly on nothing more than a spoon. Topped with Christmas red tinted coconut & an unspecified number of birthday candles Wink

Crumb coated & waiting


There are no sliced photos because we devoured it so fast. Enjoy!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

That looks fabulous!  Good for you for celebrating!  My birthday is in January, so it gets overlooked by some people. A few years ago I threw myself a party and from then on I've taken the situation into my own hands.  Not that I do something extravagant (for instance last year I was super sick and just stayed home), but I make sure to celebrate in some fashion.

Good heavens, throw yourself a party if you have to!  If you want a birthday party you should have one. 

The cake looks fantastic.
