Do you bake your own birthday cake?

Tomorrow's my birthday (yuck) so today I'm making myself a better than sex cake. I almost always bake my own, it's my preference, but if I want a store-bought cake I have to buy it myself too!

  • No :( I don't get a cake. If someone makes me one or buys me one I get cake, but that's rare. I make most of my kids' cakes myself though.

  • I always buy. I usually just buy 4 cupcakes instead of a cake.

  • We are not a cake family. Kids are grown but they probably have each only had a cake a couple of times. My husband's birthday is Christmas Day and mine is also Christmas week, so we never have cake-

  • I don't get a birthday cake anymore (either make, buy or fact I request NO cake) because I have a child that was born a few days before me. We already have a cake leftover so it seems pointless to get another one just for me now.

  • NOPE! My little brother was born the day after my 12th birthday, so we didn't want 2 birthday cakes in a row. I chose to have a Marie Calendar pie for my birthday...either strawberry or banana cream every year.

    My first birthday after we met, my husband went and ordered a custom made strawberry banana cream pie from the Marie Calendar restaurant by us, and every year for the last 23 he has done the same......

  • My DH knows that my favorite cake comes from a small bakery not far from us. They have this white chocolate raspberry one that is so incredible and is far more complicated than I would make for myself. Although I make all of the other birthday cakes in the family, my b-day cake comes from there. Here is the bakery's description: With light–as–a feather white cake, these cake layers are filled with white chocolate Parisienne Cream that has a puree of raspberries and raspberry liquer folded into the filling. Its pale pink color is beautiful.

  • I should have added...My brother in law used to make me a coconut cake every year. He's deceased now so it's just not the same. I don't mind not having one.
