  2. Kelly H-Y says:

    Happy Birthday!!! Have a fabulous day! The difference made by painting that table and adding the rug, etc. is AMAZING! You have such a great eye!
    As for the contest … my favorite cake flavor is carrot cake … or apple cake … or spice cake … but definitely one of those (hmmm … they all have cinnamon … I think there’s a theme!) ! :-)

  3. Kelly M. says:

    Happy Birthday to you!! I love chocolate cake – the chocolatier the better! I also love that sweet Todd & Kelly necklace in your post. My husband’s name is Todd so, it just made my heart leap when I saw it! Hope you have a wonderful day and a blessed year! Kelly

  4. jennifer says:

    Yeah, for birthdays! They are my favorite. I love the Alice in Wonderland Idea of ‘unbirthdays’, as my birthday is Dec 20th, being so close to Christmas it loses some of it’s specialness. None the less birthdays are GREAT!
    Favorite cake, Homemade – Funfetti, vanilla frosting. At our local supermarket – Tuxedo Cake. At our local bakery – Carrot cake with oh so yummy cream cheese frosting. One cake is just to hard to decide on. Happy Birthday!

  5. Karen L says:

    Happy Birthday. Love the new table.

    My favourite cake flavour ….carrot cake with vanilla frosting (yes please … :-)

    Holding thumbs.

  7. Adriane Watson says:

  11. Scarlett says:

    Happy Birthday! Little else is more satisfying than finding something great at a thrift store.

    My favorite flavor of cake is… ice cream cake!!
    It’s hard for me to stomach frosting of any kind — even the frosting top of one small cupcake is too much! So, ice cream cake is my friend. Cookies n’ Cream ice cream cake, to be more specific. ;)

    Happy birthday to you. I hope it was lovely!!

    My very favorite flavor of cake is: Death by Chocolate Bundt Cake (It is a really dense, rich cake full of chocolatey goodness drizzled with a chocolate ganache frosting and topped off with mini chocolate chips) – can you tell I love chocolate :) .

  15. Happy Birthday Lisa! My favorite cake is Boston Cream Pie. Yummers! xoxo C

  16. Mari Larkin says:

    Hope your day was fantastic!

  30. Becky says:

    Wishing all the best birthday wishes to such a strong, brave, and inspirational woman.

    While I adore cheesecake, my favourite flavour of “cake” cake is carrot cake with cream cheese icing. Can’t get enough. :)

  31. Happy birthday Lisa! Hope you had a great day with lots of treats!

    As a wedding planner, I eat a lot of cake (woo~hoo for a great job perk!). I will never turn down red velvet, or a great vanilla with fresh strawberries and chocolate. The best wedding cake I ever had was banana with chocolate fudge and peanut butter (YUM!). But I will always have a spot in my heart for the good ol Funfetti from a box.

    Happy Birthday! I’m not sure if “yellow” is a technical “flavor” but it’s my fave when topped with chocolate frosting!

  55. Sidnie says:

    I love a white cake with fresh strawberries in the middle. Yum.
    Or anything chocolate. Chocolate is always good.

    Happy, happy birthday!!
    I love the cream in your room. I agree it softens it up, and it looks so peaceful.

  56. Sidnie says:

    @greenenough4me tweeted. :)

  57. Hmmmm, can I only pick one???????

    I would say that if right now I were going to make or buy a cake, I would look for a vanilla cake with white, super fluffy buttercream frosting– that sounds summer-y enough!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LISA! It’s amazing how perfect that coffee table is after a little paint… inspires me to see what I need to “spruce up” around my house!

    My favorite cake ever is carrot cake made by my Gram. If she’s not available (because I’ve moved to a different country and all…) then I’m a sucker for angel food cake with strawberries and lemon glaze.

  71. Cindy says:

    Lemon. No, angel food. Well, maybe coconut. Gosh, I think vanilla. However, almond. No, German chocolate. Golly, why should we have to choose?
    Happy Day!

    Happy Birthday! Love your blog :-) . Such gorgeous colors in your living room – it’s so inviting! I want to dive right in with a favorite book or magazine.

    Favorite cake? Let’s see . . . . . I do love chocolate. White cake is great too, with berry filling, or berries on the side. I’m a huge frosting fan, so chocolate or vanilla cake with a brown butter frosting – - yum!

    I also have a recipe for an Oatmeal cake with coconut frosting – it’s so simple and so good. You asked for a favorite and I can’t decide!
    Sweet wishes for a wonderful day!

  96. Katie says:

    I’ll give my vote to cheesecake, although in my youth, my mother would get up early and have a fresh hot apple pie ready for me for breakfast as my birthday was often shadowed by Thanksgiving (and I didn’t like cake!).

  97. sylvie says:

    I love buttercream frosting more than life, okay not really, but I do love it a lot! As for the cake part of the delectable duo, I would have to go with carrot cake! It has always been my fav, even as a child.

    Your living room is so sweet. I have been working on a new house that my family just moved into and I seem to be purchasing a lot of things and not putting them up. I think I’m so fixated on making it look homey and not store bought that I second guess my purchases and they just end up in a pile in the hallway!

  178. Kelsey says:

  217. Lori says:

    My mom always makes me a yellow cake with white icing for my birthday and its without a doubt my favorite sweet treat for the whole year….the old fashioned icing, none of that light whipped stuff for me…the old school, Crisco, thick as can be icing. She loves to do it and I love to it….even though I am 47 years old, every year when I bite into that cake I feel like a giddy six year old!!

    Happy Birthday, Lisa!! May you feel six years old all day today!!

    Simple Pound Cake just out of the over (with nilla ice cream)

    Happy Birthday!

  342. hands down, funfetti cake. ie, The Best Birthday Cake of All Time. only…

    the trick is.

    rainbow chip icing *instead of * funfetti icing. because, really…pastel sprinkles? on top? when i can have colorful chips that actually *match* my cake throughout? such a no-brainer.

    duh.

    my little sister and i have a tradition of making funfetti cakes for every birthday. i don’t know why. i know there are better and fancier cakes in the world. i love a mad hatter cake. but, when it comes down to it, funfetti tastes the sweetest to me because of my sister.

    xo

    My favorite kind of cake? I’m a purist… chocolate cake, chocolate icing. But I can be persuaded to eat chocolate cake w/german chocolate frosting or cream cheese frosting w/m&ms.

    Thank you for your continued inspiring work and words!

  352. Kim says:

    Happy Birthday, and nice job on the table. Even more, nice job on your enthusiasm for life and creativity. The true and beautiful are contagious! As I am a savory girl, a disgrace to my gender, I would prefer a good “cake” of Manchego cheese on sourdough. BUT, if my husband makes me our family recipe of Ugly Chocolate Cake, I can be won over!

  353. Merideth says:

    my birthday is next week and what a lovely gift this would be for myself! Oh and duh…HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you LISA!! My favorite cake is oatmeal with coconut frosting…yummmm

  392. Stephanie says:

    Happy birthday! Thanks for your creativity and your inspiration to make every day ‘ordinary’ finds extraordinary.

    My FAVORITE flavor of cake was a cake they used to make at Jamail’s in Houston – they are long gone and I haven’t found it since but it was a chocolate cake layered with a hardened cream in the middle and then chocolate ganache on top. In the cream there were sliced and 1/2 strawberries standing up. So it would look like a thin brown layer on the bottom, a super thick cream layer with sliced strawberries upside down and right side up (always looked like hearts to me – probably why I LOVE the cake) ..then a think layer of chocolate cake on top of that and topped off with chocolate ganache. I have never found it again but I still dream of it!!!

  393. Dresden says:

    I facebooked about it!

  394. Skie says:

    Happy Birthday!
    My favorite kind of cake is pretty easy….marble cake. Chocolate and vanillla mixed together…..how can you go wrong? ;) And I don’t care what kind of icing goes on top…..as long as it’s full of sugar, lol!
    BUT…my favorite type of dessert? Chocolate brownie heated up with vanilla ice cream. Mmmm…….

  395. Valerie says:

    Happy birthday! I am more of a pie girl, but a French bakery near us has a wonderful chocolate mousse cake – yum!

  396. maryanne says:

    Happy Birthday Lisa – hope you have a great day.
    It’s not really a birthday cake but I love a caramel upside down apple cake.

  397. Monica Flaska says:

  398. paige says:

    Pam

  402. Ashley C. says:

    Happy Birthday Lisa! My favorite cake flavor is just plain vanilla and NO icing. I know icing is most people’s favorite part of cake (espcially my daughter), but I just don’t like it! When I was younger my friends used to think I was so crazy for requesting cake with no icing for my birthday!

  403. jecwmu says:

  525. Kristen says:

    Have a very happy birthday, love your new coffee table!!! Choosing a favorite flavor of cake is hard–I am pretty fond of just plain white cake with the bavarian cream filling–not very creative, but oh so delicious! Gift certificates to Lisa Leonard & Target is like my dream come true!

  526. Michelle says:

    I shared about this giveaway on Twitter. (@michellebygrace)

    Thanks again!

  527. MrsBagley says:

  528. Judy says:

    Happy Birthday to you cha cha cha….

    I don’t have birthday cake… mint chocolate brownies is mine. But I do like cake… devils food (or any chocolate) with chocolate buttercream frosting. (Maybe I will top it if it is german chocolate with home german chocolate topping).

  529. Jackie says:

    Oh my goodness! What an amazing giveaway! I love all cakes, but I’d have to narrow it down to 2–confetti cake (from the box, with confetti frosting), and earthquake cake (nuts, coconut, gooey cream cheese….it’s delish!). Happy Birthday and hope I win!

  530. Sharrin says:

    Happy Birthday! My favorite is angel food cake with 7 minute frosting – has been since I was a little girl. Now my boys make me a cake every year – always my favorite but with a twist – one year they coloured it pink with soft yellow frosting (girlie) and the next it was red inside with camo frosting (very boy!) – I have had a rainbow cake and an Italian/Canadian flag cake – it is amazing what you can do with an angel food cake and little boy imagination. Hope you have a lovely day!

  531. SandyW says:

    Happy Birthday! Any kind of Chocolate cake is my favorite!

  532. Whitney S. says:

    Happy day to you! I’m not a big cake fan, but I love apple pie for my birthday and if it has to be cake, then I would say chocolate! I hope your day is great!

  533. Favorite kind of cake, huh??

    I think it might be banana cake with banana frosting. It is so amazing!! YUM! I wish I had a piece right now!! Happy Birthday! :)

    Happy Birthday Lisa!!! As you already know I bake cakes for people.. so it would be hard to choose just one. I think a chocolate and vanilla swirled pound cake with vanilla bean buttercream icing would be just yummy!

  538. Cindy says:

    Happy Birthday!! Have a wonderful day. My favorite cake is carrot cake with cream cheese frosting!! Add a little vanilla ice cream… Yummm!!!

One week before to talk about your upcoming birthday, one week to celebrate, and one week to talk about how much fun you had celebrating – that’s the Seeler family rule :) My fave cake is banana with chocolate chips, and peanut butter frosting.

Thanks for sharing on this blog. I look forward to seeing what’s new every day.

  656. My favorite cake would be chocolate with a cream cheese frosting! My favorite dessert is German Chocolate Cheesecake (but that technically isn’t cake right)?

    Happy birthday, Lisa!!!

    I <3 your living room!

    My favorite cake is chocolate with chocolate frosting. When I was growing up, though, my mom always made me something with strawberries as my birthdays falls at the beginning of strawberry season. Strawberry pie or strawberry shortcake are some of my birthday dessert memories.
