Burger Birthday “Cake”

Burger Birthday “Cake”

I fuc***** love birthdays.


Like I love birthdays like Hagrid loves birthdays.

I mean who doesn’t love balloons and streamers and blowing out candles??! Answer: everybody.

Chances are if we’re friends, or even just acquaintances I’m baking you an extravagant 3 layer cake based on the immense amount of internet stalking I’ve done to find out your dessert preferences.

And if we’re REALLY close friends? Oh so help you because I will be filling your bedroom with balloons and waking you up at 6 am by jumping on your bed singing Katy Perry songs.

Yeah. I’m insane.

You know what I love more than other people’s birthday?

My own birthday.

I am aware of how self indulgent that sounds but I mean COME ON! 

An entire day (or month in my case) dedicated to YOU

Okay okay okay don’t go tearing me apart saying I’m in love with myself (because I so am not)

But I mean come on, actress, youtuber, obviously I’m obsessed with attention (sue me)

But all my humility aside (lol) – my birthday  is my favorite holiday next to Christmas

Yet I continiously commit the worlds biggest birthday sin- one I agonize my friends over

I   don’t   like   cake.

I KNOW.

Okay I mean in the scheme of desserts and sweets I think cake is probably up there- but in general? I don’t really like sweets.

Hold back your pitchforks and torches

I am so aware of how ironic this is that a baker doesn’t enjoy baked goods

But I mean have you EVER HAD FRENCH FRIES?!?!?

I cannot wrap my head over choosing a candy bar over french fries smothered in ketchup (omfg I’m drooling)

So for my 23rd birthday (TOMORROW OMG ITS TOMORROW!!!) I thought I’d bake something I’d actually want to eat.

And with that being said, ladies & gentlegiants,

I present to you,

The Burger Birthday Cake.

*gasps*

*faints into bowl of sweet potatoes*

I’ll give you a minute alone 😉
