you swear you've heard it before as it slowly rambles on

My birthday is coming up, and I'm trying to decide what to do, cake-wise.  Perhaps you remember the layered pie from a couple of years ago--two pies, one on top of the other, a success structurally, but disappointing in the taste department.  The berry pie was too bland.  Then if I remember correctly, last year was a banana trifle which was the bomb, as Grant says.  Are people saying "the bomb" again?  Of all the phrases to bring back, that would not be my first choice.  Anyway, I'm thinking about my favorite flavors and textures to see if I can come up with a good birthday treat. I like gooeyness, chocolate, cream cheese frosting, carrot cake, butter, cinnamon and sugar, and fruit.  And doughnuts.  So a computer would probably tell me I would like a cherpumple, but that computer would be wrong.  No cinnamon with chocolate!  No fruit with carrot cake!  I'm quite hard to please, you know.  I'm a fancy girl.

Methinks a multi-layered cake-sized kouign-amann would not go amiss.  Or a giant old-fashioned doughnut. Do you remember the bundt cake mixes that had a tunnel of pudding?  Why did they stop making those?  How stupid of them.  I bet people would be all up ons.  Oh, I remember--my sister Aleece made me a Boston Cream Pie one year recently.  So my memory is off, but in any case, I've had some good birthday cakes and I want the trend to continue.  Suggestions?

German Chocolate? Chocolate, gooey, coconut, rich. I don't know why, but your descriptors made me think of that. I have been saying "the bomb" lately, and I don't know where I got it. What saying would you prefer?

baked Alaska, but with good ice cream and cake and a wicked rich sauce.

Why not another Boston cream pie? Baked Alaska would be an adventure. German chocolate, yes. Even I like that. But I guess you've already decided on a double pavlova. I am late to the game.
