If it's to be a family affair, Lady Baltimore cake out of Fannie Farmer cookbook would be a good choice. Delicate flavour and pretty to look at whilst easy to prepare. If it is she and her friends, consider New York style cheesecake with a crumb crust and see if you could obtain a sugar sheet decoration (personalized) from a local bakery. Cheesecakes are easily made at home. If it is a full crew event, sheet cake flavoured to her liking with compatible frosting.

I would also avoid any marzipan or pre-packaged fondants. Most are overly sweet.
Happy Birthday!

The cake is a lie

Cake - Always chocolate! Marzipan is awful! With regards to the design try and make a cake that relates to something shes interested in, or just stick to a nice basic design with some nice toppings. mmm... cake!

Ice Cream Cake Dessert

1 pkg. (18-1/4 oz.) chocolate cake mix
1 qt. vanilla ice cream, softened

3 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate, chopped

1/2 c. slivered almonds

Line a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with waxed paper. Grease the paper; set aside. Prepare cake batter according to package directions; pour into prepared pan. Bake at 350 F. for 23-28 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Invert cake and gently peel off waxed paper. Cut cake in half widthwise. Place one half on a serving platter. Spread with ice cream; top with remaining cake. Cover and freeze. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, milk and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in chocolate until melted. Stir in vanilla. Serve warm over cake. Sprinkle with almonds.

1/3 cup baking cocoa
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, 1/3 cup sugar, egg and salt until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls over cake batter; cut through batter with a knife to swirl the peanut butter mixture. Sprinkle with pecans and remaining sugar. Bake at 350 F. for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack before cutting. Refrigerate leftovers. Makes 24 servings.

Well the best cake to me is the Italian Creme Cake at Sam's Wholesale, I just had my birthday on Nov, 1st and that is what I had. It is the same cake that they sell by the slice at Olive Garden for over $4 a slice, It is a sponge cake with a layer of lemon marscapone cheese in the center. here I go drooling

Do you have any bakeries near by that sell Tres Leches (3 milks) cake? OMG!! Those are the best!!

Were you planning on baking it or buying it?? If you buy it, how about a chocolate whipped cream cake with fresh strawberries and/or bananas in the center? My personal favorite actually...

A homemade carrot cake, with a creamed cheese frosting is always very popular. Or, German chocolate cake is another one that people really like.
