Birthday cake suggestions

Thought this would be the best place to turn for advice :)

My birthday's coming up this week, and I'd like to make a cake for it (going out to dinner with friends, and I've arranged with the restaurant that I will bring a cake). But I'm stuck on what to make now.

I recently made a triple chocolate mousse cake for a friend's wedding, so I was thinking of that. But I'm not convinced yet. It's also incredibly rich, so perhaps too much following dinner.

I am looking for something that tastes fantastic. And that is not your everyday cake. But also shouldn't be over-complicated, as I won't have too much time to spare and don't want to spend my birthday washing dishes.

TIA :)
