Lightened "skinny" Birthday Cake Recipe Round Up

My mind has been on birthday celebrations since it was my birthday a few days ago.  I have to say I dream about what cake I want months and months before.  When I was young it was all about pie, Chocolate Cream Pie.  My little one loves cupcakes for hers. So this recipe round up has cakes, pies, cupcakes and even an adorable cookie.  The best part, you won’t even realize these are “light” recipes when you eat them.

    I just wanted to let you know I made your Lemon Coconut Pound Cake today. It was very good. Everyone that tried it liked it. I have been meaning to male it and forgot until I saw it when I clicked on the Hummingbird Cake and saw it. I am sure it will be gone by tomorrow. Ha!!!
