Marble Birthday Cake

On November 16th I finally became 20! Now I’m finally out of teenage-ville and off to Adult City! I’m at an age where I’m adult enough to be out on my own but not adult enough to legally drink. But I only have one more year to go so I guess I’ll have to hold on until then.

Some people may think it’s sad to make your own birthday cake but I thought it was so much fun! I made myself a marble cake, it was so delicious and moist that everyone in my family thought it came from a bakery. On top of that it came out so beautifully! Unfortunately I still haven’t mastered white cake so I had to buy cake mix. I was also kinda lazy and didn’t want the whole day fussing over a white cake recipe. So let’s get started!
