Lately, my cooking hasn’t exactly been inspirational. But my summer class is almost over, and I promise that the blog will feature more interesting and seasonal recipes. I plan to do quite a bit of cooking over 4th of July weekend with my family. And that’s where I need your help.

You see, when it was my birthday, my sister made this awesome birthday cake. There were three layers of peanut butter and chocolate.

So my sister’s birthday is almost here, and she requested a special birthday cake that I’ll make for 4th of July weekend when we’re together. But the question is, what cake do you think I should make? In the past, she’s had ice cream cakes, and my Mom’s Death by Chocolate trifle. We’re looking for something special, so I am open to suggestions of cakes you’ve made, or ones you’ve had at restaurants and would love me to recreate. There are no allergies or other restrictions, so feel free to be creative.
I’ll let my sister choose, and then I’ll be sure to post the final result!
