On Birthday Cake for Breakfast

We had several birthdays in the family last weekend, and we're left with quite a lot of birthday cake. Emma's post earlier today on breakfast reminded us of a secret pleasure: birthday cake for breakfast. It seems as much of a tradition as the birthday cake itself. After all, if you're eating breakfast anyway, cake is good for you, right? In the immortal words of Bill Cosby, "Eggs are in chocolate cake! And milk! Oh goody! And wheat! That's nutrition!"

Here are some good links to recipes and fun ideas for birthday cakes.
