Cake and Champagne. Two of my favorite things, and they go so well together. Today is my birthday, and that's no April Fool'n. So naturally I want both - cake and champagne! I am like Kate Spade New York, and would love to eat cake for breakfast, if given the chance. Nothing says let's celebrate like a glass of bubbly. So cheers to me and birthday girls (and guys) all over the world.

Ron-Ben Israel Design
I saw this blooming cake at Instyle, and it took my breath away. Mr. Ben-Israel is said to be the "Manolo Blahnik" of cakes. Ms. Shop This has visited his bakery/studio, and reported that it was a magical place! So if I could order my birthday cake, this would be the one!

I cannot resist a pretty presentation. But these roses are more than props. The recipe calls for actual Rose Water! You can find that at Amazon. The recipe at
Half Baked Harvest
Strawberry, Sorbet, Vodka + Champagne Cocktail

Champagne & Rock Candy Swizzle Sticks
If you are like me, you don't love the idea of diluting champagne with juice. I do, however, love a fancy looking drink. This is so easy to achieve with these sweet sticks. You can find the Candy Sticks at Target

Another cake that my Mom made all of the time. It was absolutely delicious, right, Mr. Shop This? Here is a recipe that takes it up a notch with caramel frosting.
Champagne-And-Orange Granita Cocktail
Made with St. Germain. Need I say more?
Chocolate Coffee Ice Cream Cake
Even if you are not a coffee drinker, I think you will find this ice cream concoction irresistible. The bottom layer of the cakes is actually brownies!
Champagne Chantilly Shooters
Made with heavy cream, these make a special dessert.
It almost doesn't matter what the whole cake looks like when the inside cuts like this! A frosting lover (like me) dream cake.
Billecart - Salmon
If you want to impress a birthday girl, client, or good friend, gift or serve them Billecart. This French sparkling rose wine is elegant with lots of fine bubbles. I became acquainted with it by my dear friend, Sara. Oh how we have celebrated life's special occasions with a bottle or two!
Thomas Keller's Coconut Cake
Thick Italian meringue is sandwiched between layers of very moist white cake. This recipe is for my cake loving friend, Jane!
Just when I thought champagne couldn't get any better! Mixed with homemade lemon liqueur, and fresh mint, this is one refreshing drink.
Lemon Sunshine Cake
The best Lemon layer cake I have ever had was at Del Frisco's in Chicago. The meal was not good but this complimentary cake was to die for. It didn't look as pretty as this, though. That ombre frosting is beyond!
The Simple Sweet Life
YES! Me, too.
