My favorite birthday memory was when I was turning 10. We were on vacation for the summer and my mom bought a cake at a store in Colorado and we sang and ate it at a picnic table on the side of the road!!  Posted by: Bonnie | April 14, 2015 at 04:56 PM

One of my favorite birthday memories is the year I had my birthday at a friends house. Her mom made a special cake that was a doll. The dress was a cake and it was decorated up beautifully! Thanks for helping to remind me of this good time, and for a chance to win this fun prize!  Posted by: Jeannean M | April 10, 2015 at 02:34 PM
