Birthday Cake

A couple of days ago (well, March 3) it was my birthday, and I decided to bake a cake, as I usually do. I enjoy baking and cooking, and that way I also get to have a cake the way I am used to from Sweden. I will post the directions when I get home, but it is really easy.

The main difference between the cakes made the traditionally way in the US and in Sweden/Europe are listed below, but there are of course exceptions:

United States Europe/Sweden
Layers Solid cake, or 2 layers 3 or more layers
Filling Sugar/butter mix, sometimes chocolate flavored Whipped cream, fruit/berries, jam, vanilla custard, or chocolate
Cake covering "Icing" (butter/sugar mix) Whipped cream
Decoration Colored icing Fresh fruit
