Birthday Recipes (Most Popular)
Made these for a first birthday party- for my puppy. I decided to taste one, since there wasn't anything in them that I wouldn't eat otherwise. I was very pleasantly surprised that they tasted very good to me! They're not cloyingly sweet, but neither are they bland. I crunched the numbers, and decided that nutritionally they seemed reasonable in moderation. So, they are puppy and kitty safe as well for treats, b-days, etc.Submitted by LATTELICIOUS

Makes a fast easy dense chocolate cake. I've even mixed up all the dry ingredients and placed them in containers for fast easy cake mixes. I found this recipe because my husband's grandmother use to make one very similar to it for him as a treat. This is soooo not low cal or anything, but i'm looking at ways to improve it.Submitted by JUNICA
This was originally my Mom's recipe. I made it for her to celebrate her 90th birthday, decreasing the oil, adding the applesauce, and cutting the frosting in half. Rave reviews and frequent requests for this delicious (and somewhat less decadent) birthday cake!Submitted by BABYSTEPS123
