Submit Your Favorite Homemade Cake Picture

It can be any kind of cake -- birthday, anniversary, wedding, or just a neat cake that you made and want others to see.

The cake must have been made by you or someone in your family.

Please share your recipe and preparation tips (since readers will be inspired to try to make it themselves if it looks good and sounds tasty).

Any other interesting facts or tidbits about the cake would also be of interest to readers (like: Is it a family recipe, or did you get the idea from somewhere else? Where did you get the pan from if it's a specialty cake like Spiderman or Barbie).
