I did some things, but that's the old me

I have a dilemma. Tomorrow is my birthday, so we need a birthday dessert of some kind, but I can't make up my mind! We did carrot cake for Pinga's birthday, so that's out, unfortunately. I was thinking this or this, but have not fully settled on either one. Why is there no such thing as a three-layer pie? Because that's what I really want. I initiated preliminary specs for one, but gave up when I determined that it couldn't have decent crust and maintain structural integrity. Can you imagine, though? Picture a warmish slice of three-layer fruit pie being handed to you on a white stoneware plate with a fork in the Bead pattern, a little bit of vanilla custard or ice cream on the side. It would be so AWESOME.

Anyway, I've renounced the layered pie dream, at least for now. But I still need a good birthday treat. Any suggestions? Ideas?

Claudia makes a really good cake (esp. for summer). She makes Angel Food cake and then slices it (well, Orson does the slicing with his automated knife) into like four layers or something and then she creates a pineapple, cream cheese, cream center and lumps it between each layer. Then she tops it with more of the stuff and sliced strawberries. It is the yummiest!

Happy birthday tomorrow btw. Perhaps we should use that as an excuse to go get some good Indian - my treat.

Happy birthday. I like the looks of that cream cake. Google "apple stack cake." I've never made one, but there's a pie-like cake with many layers traditional in the South.

Layne, funny, but I've made that exact same chocolate peanut butter cake. I LOVE it! So, there's my biased opinion, go for the chocolate peanut cake.

They both look amazing, but I can personally vouch for the chocolate/peanut butter. It doth rock. Much. Just thinking about it makes me want to make it right now.
