Anyone else have a child who says they want cake but come to find out the child only eats the frosting?

my son wanted a confetti cake for his birthday and when it came time for the cake and ice cream he only ate the frosting and the ice cream....i think he may have taken 2 tiny bites of the cake.....

  • a lot of kids do that. in fact, for me personally, its the 'icing on the cake' that makes it worthwhile!

  • its happened with every cake/bun she has ever been given, each time I say "Im only getting it for you if you eat it all" and she goes "I will mom I love it" but the icing or frosting only gets ate..

  • Lots of birthday parties where at the end you see most of the cupcakes still on the plate with the icing licked off. Just a kid thing! Eventually they eat it all. But then there are a few kids that want the icing taken off and eat the cake only! Go figure! I like it all!
