Birthday Cake season! seriously...

jeniyo | Apr 16, 200902:10 PM     27

Is it me or are everyone's birthdays are coming up, AT THE SAME TIME. I have so far to make 3+ birthday cakes for my dear friends and mother. I know everyone i know likes chocolate, peanut butter and more chcoolate - old standards are great but i'd like to

1. polish up my cake & frosting making skills, diff types of cake base, frosting, filings, curds, gelee.. etc.
2. decorate it nicely, may even venture into the world of fondant/ gum paste. (where do i start? I need more advice)
3. can keep for at least a day and few more in the fridge.

what you you made recently that went well, and do you have any recommendations on interesting and fun flavor combos???
