If you or your kids don't like cake do you buy one anyways for they're birthday?

Out of birthday tradition? Or do you eat a different dessert?

 As a baker I am getting other ideas and options to please my customers. So far for the ones that don't like cake I make cake pops since they are smaller and they don't mind a little. I also make them chocolate dipped fruit or a cookie cake.

  • Get what you and the kids like.
    I always ask for Ice Cream cake for myself. And my Mom loves Strawberry Pie, so thats what I make her.

  • If my kid doesnt like cake then no I wouldnt buy it...I would get some other kind of dessert....I don't really like cake (I hate frosting) but I still get it for my daughter's bday and I just eat the ice cream...strawberry shortcake is awesome though...would that be a good substitute?

  • I agree frosting is too much for me. When I did my internship at a cupcake shop they would send me home with a box of free cupcakes everyday. I would scrap off the frosting and eat the cake or on days when my son can have sweets he would eat the frosting for me! Strawberry shortcake is a good idea!

  • I actually get customers that have no idea what they want. I have to give them ideas and avoid cake!
    Cakes are actually my favorite thing to make besides Baklava.

  • I don't buy desserts, I make my kids' cakes unless they want something different.
