Every spring and summer, almost like clockwork, I receive multiple recipe requests for the Baltimore peach cake. Linda Terlizzi from Hanover, Pa., was one of several readers looking for the recipe this year. She said from the time she was a young child in the 1950s, her family loved the fresh peach cake made at the New System Bakery on 36th Street in Hampden. The bakery has since closed, and Terlizzi said she has yet to find a peach cake that equals the one from there. Peach cake is one of those uniquely Baltimore things, like coddies, that live long in people's memories.

Let's be honest, choosing the cake is probably the most exciting part of wedding planning. Okay, I should probably preface that by saying that I'm overly obsessed with food. When I'm eating breakfast, I'm already thinking about lunch and dinner. But even if you're not a food lover like me or maybe desserts aren't your thing (really, do people who don't like dessert exist? I don't think so) it's still fun to meet with cake vendors, try samples, plan your design and pick a cake topper. My number one tip to remember -- don't rush the process!

I know we all try not to think about it, but ... your wedding is likely one of the most expensive days of your life. Everyone has their own tips and tricks for saving money on the big day, so here's my two-cents on keeping a little extra in your pocket -- and how much I've saved so far using these strategies. The cake Tell your baker you would like to do two tiers on display with a sheet cake (or two depending on the size of your wedding) in the kitchen. This allows you to have a beautifully decorated cake on display for your guests but can save you significantly because the baker doesn't have to decorate as much.

Michelle Obama's 45th birthday cake was mixed, baked and iced in the heart of Baltimore - in a cinder-block east-side building, next to a sheet-metal factory, a few blocks north of Pulaski Highway. Longtime Donna's baker Sabine Breitenstein did the honors - though she had no idea at the time that it was an honor. She was just baking, as she's done for more than 15 years. "I didn't know anything, really," says Breitenstein, who found out later that the two cakes she made were for Obama.

My grandmother enforced a no-oven policy during the hottest part of the summer. Her adamant don't-heat-up-the-kitchen stance caused some interesting detours when a family birthday fell during the cake-baking blackout period. The simple answer was to phone Fiske's, the wonderful Park Avenue-Bolton Hill confectioner, and order a cake and ice cream, which was delivered in a snappy-looking dark blue truck with gold lettering. The ice cream came boxed and wrapped in dry ice that, when placed in a bucket of water, made great spooky clouds.

LAST WEEKEND my wife and I threw what we hope is our last big birthday bash. Our youngest son turned 12, an occasion he and a gang of his buddies marked by shooting each other with lasers and eating chocolate sheet cake.We figure that this noisy event might signal the end of the "mob of kids" style of birthday celebration. We are hoping that from now on, the kid will want to celebrate birthdays the way adults do: Either ignoring them or going out for a quiet evening with a few friends. We'll see.The shooting-each-other-with-lasers part of the birthday experience was new to me, but not to the guys at the party.

BIRTHDAYS ARE times to take stock. So recently when our "little boy" turned 16, I watched him shovel down supper and tried to recall the various food phases this kid, like kids everywhere, had gone through. The birthday boy got to pick the menu for his celebratory meal. He requested fried chicken, biscuits, gravy, oven-roasted potatoes and for desert, a chocolate sheet cake. The kid has always been fond of chicken. But over the years the kid has held a variety of opinions on how chicken should be served.

I don't know why every lottery winner doesn't do this. The 82-year-old winner of the recent $144 million Powerball jackpot shunned the news conference and sent his lawyer instead. "Helium-filled balloons bobbed in the air at the Frank D. Reeves Center on U Street NW," The Washington Post reported last week. "Icing on a sheet cake exclaimed: CONGRATULATIONS TO THE D.C. LOTTERY'S $144 MILLION POWERBALL JACKPOT WINNER! Gift bags were filled with small favors, all with the lottery's logo. But the winner kept his distance.
